History

Here are some pictures of different versions of my website.

1st Design:

All I can remember from my original website are the colors blue and green. I no longer have a copy of it, and neither does the Internet Archive Wayback Machine. :(

2nd Design:

The color scheme is quite embarrassing, but I guess I must have liked it back then. The buttons on the left are the result of too much use of linear gradient fill styles.

3rd Design:

Back to the green and blue colors, but this time with a sidebar. I still like this design, and I also got a lot of praise for it, but it was too cumbersome to maintain.

4th Design:

Basically the same design as the last one, but with frames and better looking links. It was easier to maintain because the menus were independent.

5th Design:

I grew tired of the previous design, so I made a new one from scratch. I decided to focus more on the actual contents, and I think it went pretty well. I also started using PHP which made a lot of things much easier.

6th Design:

For some time I wanted to make a more impressive design than the previous one, but I always ended up failing. Even though the design might be a bit boring to look at, I do find it clean, stylish, and pleasant.

But something had to happen. I decided to keep the basic design, but with rounded corners, soft shadows, and more graphics. I also added a title banner, moved the breadcrumb links below that, and changed the page width to match a resolution of 1024 x 768 instead of 800 x 600.

7th Design:

Small changes this time. Larger text, larger line height, and larger thumbnails. Removed descriptive text from menus. Also put an advert at the top of every page.

8th Design (Current):

Even smaller changes this time. Optimized the design using CSS for rounded borders and soft shadows. Changed the banner font.
