Maybe one day I'll edit it into paragraphs with better colors, but part of me wants to keep it like that, it's more nostalgic. :D Plus that's how I originally wrote it. And that background is a computer chip.



Well as it is it sure screams 1996.   "Netscape added webpage backgrounds,  look what I can do!"   The only thing missing is the blink tag ;)

Imho all web pages should strive to look like FaceSpace.

My web page design aesthetics are stuck in the mid-1990s. XD

I get my "classic web" fix by visiting the website for one of my favorite Atari retailers, Best Electronics.....






Then I get a nostalgic website, while looking up parts for nostalgic computers and consoles.

Fashion. Do you dress the same way that you did in 1987?


(I may be sorry I asked ...) 

The way i would have dressed then is the way I dress now... (jeans, t-shirt, shoes, sometimes a jean jacket.)

I prefer older websites. My favorite website period is still http://www.atarimuseum.com . It's artistic, informative, easy to navigate, and quick loading.

Wrote this on another forum, when someone pointed out that the official SpaceJam website was still up:

The Space Jam Website. Fun. Take a look at the source; it appears to be hand coded. Tons of white space, and one of the first lines is a comment which no code generator would create: Badda-bing, Badda-boom.

You can see the beginnings of commercial webdesign here. Eventually the basic elements would be codified in a book: Creating Killer Websites. Here's it's website, from 1996: http://www.killersit...Sites/core.html

Basic layouts wouldn't change too much til the iPhone came out. Even then, most sites are conceptually the same; they just hide the menu behind a hamburger button. And they need jscript to work corr

Turn off Javascript, you get a kind of retro experience.

Yeah, with Best Electronics, it's 1994 web standards compliant... in 2017
