Hosting Old Site at Dropbox
In the interest of recordkeeping, I’m hosting my old student website at Dropbox. Is there anything that program can’t do?
I liked my old site. There was a good deal of typing involved, but it was a good site. Still: adding content was a bother. There’s no rolling screen for updates; the space just doesn’t exist. Nothing happens soon enough or quick enough for a space like that!
It’s very Web 1.0, as it were.
All the same, there’s something calm and simple about it. For example: the welcome message every time you load the page, a bit like BBS screens that displayed, a single ASCIII character at a time, each and every visit. I suppose this is because the event of visiting was significant enough to warrant its own screen.
That notion is gone; and such content is generally filed in the ‘About’ page. Well here’s my contribution to that time.
