rolladuck: I do truly miss the days when pages were hand-coded, content was static, ads meant you had hit it big (or had lots of gullible investors) and browsers just browsed.  And geocities was fun (albeit broken as shiat).
I get sad that the internet of old is but a memory, and in thirty years, few people will remember it, and its already completely out of reach.
At least with an old car, you can get that nostalgic feeling if you have one.  That is gone forever with the web.
And then occasionally you come across one of these pages.


Angelfire is still around.  I just looked, and the stupid little Angelfire site I made for myself back in high school is still there.  My shame is very great.

Why would you even leave that up? Why not take your site offline at that point and save yourself the embarrassment?

reminds me of the early days of eBay. font size run amuck. paragraphs devoted to personal opinions on politicians and whatever. the businessman that had a blast modeling/selling used ladies dresses with silly pics galore.

happily, the waybackmachine includes this site (which appears to have not changes in 8 years) so no matter what they do to it in the future, you will always be able to come back, and re-live the good times!

nilla: the header tag isn't optional on closing, which was obviously left out here.
the font size uses em's, which are a relative sizing to the element's parent.
each time a new h3 was opened, the font is increased by 1.17x.
hard to imagine ms front page even allowed this to happen.

who still uses front page?


Oddly enough, the site renders fine in Internet Explorer 9. I happened to be looking at fark on my sister's PC and had to go back to mine to see what it looked like on Firefox, since I didn't see anything weird.

I guess IE was designed with poor coding from FrontPage in mind, which would make sense.

I still handcode a lot of pages, but that's because we work on content outside of CMS-land.

The FrontPage version numbering is screwy, but it looks like this is a 10+ year-old version. A huge irritation in that one for me was tag redundancy. Instead of having

<[some tags]>lots of text it would be: <[some tags]>lots <[some tags]>of <[some tags]>text

(God freakin' dammit, the Fark editor and filter is screwing up my example, no matter how I do it.)

Whatever, my point is it would encapsulate every damn line or element in the same formatting codes separately, rather than having everything within a single set.

Also particularly infuriating to a hand-coder was that it would replace all my perfectly good, working HTML with its own interpretation -- which wouldn't work right! (AHEM, Fark.)

I love that the page was coded in a way that improved traffic 11 godzillionty percent, yet all the "experts" in here are going to show how to "fix" that code...so that it ends up being the most useless pos page on the entire internets.

You miss the point of OCD hand-coding. I must fight the parser here until it begs for mercy! It tasks me, and I shall have it!

< [some tags] > lots of text < / [some tags] >

vs.

< [some tags] > lots < / [some tags] > < [some tags] > of < / [some tags] >  < [some tags] > text < / [some tags] >

Earlier today I clicked a link and it just sat there for ten minutes with a blank page (in a tab), and I remember that that used to happen all the time.  Now it happens rarely enough that it seems odd when it does.

The poor lady that runs the website will wake up tomorrow wondering why all these people redirected from Fark have a sudden interest in embroidery machine troubleshooting, and will load up the page to check for any errors and it will look perfectly fine to her.

Maybe they leave it that way just for the traffic, in that it increases name recognition, and there just might be a really big contract coming up soon in their industry. You know a new pope is going to need a lot of new embroidery!
