What is this place, anyway?
Do you have an RSS feed for the weblog?
Why does the site look odd in my browser?
What do these icons mean?
Would you like to exchange links?

This site is my private playpen where I experiment with web design and development techniques and try to learn a bit in the process. I'm not a professional web designer, but I have built two Intranet sites for clients and worked on a couple of others. When I started the first version of this website in April 1999 it was entirely written in HTML 3.2. The current version uses transitional HTML 4.01 and CSS.
Yes, here it is. It's pretty basic, but it will enable you to keep track of updates.
(You mean, apart from my design skills or lack thereof?)
The entire layout of this site is controlled by CSS. Your browser either doesn't support CSS, or you've got CSS switched off. That mean's that you're not seeing the site as I intended. You should still be able to access the content, though.
Specifying font size in CSS is a bit tricky, since different browsers tend to interpret CSS font size specifications in a different way and in older browsers CSS-specified font sizes are impossible to resize. I ended up not specifying a font size at all. If you prefer a different font size than you're seeing now, please use your browser settings to adjust it.

On this page Transitional HTML 4.01 and CSS 1 are used. If you're seeing this text you either have CSS switched off in your browser, or you're using a browser that can't handle CSS. If you're using an older browser version, you might want to consider upgrading.
