Simplicity, carried to an extreme, becomes elegance.
— Jon Franklin
In this modern word of FooBooks and BarSpaces personal web pages might look like an abandonded technology, but I like them. I encourage everyone to have one.
I am not a web designer, as should be painfully obvious from these pages. Content, in my case, is mostly text, so that's what I'm trying to deliver. I try to follow standards and try to avoid using images for decoration or for navigational purposes. The images that I use on my pages, mostly photos, carry at least some meaning themselves.
I have written simple CSS compliant stylesheets but all pages should
be perfectly viewable without CSS support. If your browser doesn't
support CSS or doesn't support HTML5
<nav> tags the navigation above
will look like an ordinary dotted list, for example. It should still
be useable, though, with or without perfect sight.
I include a timestamp at the bottom of each ordinary HTML file unless it is otherwise dated.
GNU Emacs, a Lisp based operating system cunningly disguised as a text editor, was used to write all text. Most of it was written in Markdown.
BSD make was used to automatically rebuild HTML files if the source files had changed.
txt2tags made some of the older pages.
My flist script made some of the really ancient file lists.
LaTeX made some of the PDFs.
Groff with my own macros made some PDFs.
Some of the Postscript files were written directly in Postscript by myself, mostly just for the fun of it.
