After Compuserve, AOL and surfing the wild wide web it was time for me to order my first domain. In the meantime I had also learned a few chunks of HTML and CSS and so I put my first personal website on the net in 1999. One can see, I liked dark-mode, unusual round user interfaces and instant messengers from the beginning.
Granted, I was pretty proud.
Hardly anyone, except a few friends, saw the website, but never mind. With this website I could expand my HTML and CSS knowledge a little bit more until it was time to start something real.
