Ivo Shandor: rolladuck: At least with an old car, you can get that nostalgic feeling if you have one. That is gone forever with the web.Gone but not forgotten.
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.

Revek: It would be how many pages printed out?/I guess they sew sew sew so they don't know know know

Fluorescent Testicle: LordOfThePings: You sound concerned.It's SevenizGud. Consider yourself lucky that he didn't accuse Obama of using gay-powered abortion drones to hack the site in a decade-spanning scheme to take away everybody's weekend barbeque rights.
Fluorescent Testicle: Yvette's Bridal Formal: Because no thread on batshiat bizarre websites would be complete without it.

jonny_q: choo: Works fine in Internet Explorer actually. FrontPage rules!I was just gonna skip this until you said that...So, I had to see what retarded thing that IE was doing.<tr><td><h3><font color="red"><font face="arial">Improper timing <br><width="25%" align="left"></font color><font color="0033FF"><font face="arial">If your machine isn't timed properly, it can cause many probems in addition to thread breaks. Such as broken needles, poor stitching or sometimes no stitching.</td></tr> <tr><td> ...Obviously it's stupid that this was generated by an MS product. The whole thing is pretty funny<width>? really?</font color>? what?But the deal here is that you can't nest <td> tags. (In fact the </td> tag is, by definition, optional in HTML) So the next <tr> implies the end of the <td> element, and IE is treating that as the end of all the things inside it.Now, I'm not going to sit here for an hour and pick it apart, but see that part I copy/pasted? I can't find a matching <table> for it anywhere, so Chrome is just plain dropping those tags entirely. The <tr> and <td> tags may as well not exist, so you end up with a series of unclosed <h3> tags everywhere.It's a fun exercise in HTML parsing.I don't have Windows 8. I'm curious what IE10 does if you force it to "standards mode"
Smelly Pirate Hooker: At least you can read the type, unlike on websites that feature tiny white type against a black background, or light gray type against a white background.

LordOfThePings: HBIC: I just looked at this site from my phone and it looks fine.... anyone got a acreenshot?Windows Phone, right?There are a couple of screenshots in the thread already.
Badgerlad: kim jong-un: And somewhere someone with a screen reader clicked that linkMakes me wonder what the required font size is before a screen reader interprets it as "this is so important, I must shout it in a creepy robotic voice, mere speech does not cover fonts of this magnitude".
