I am obsessed with tiny, self contained websites. I dunno why, but they fascinate me. Only problem is, I’m really bad at CSS and I always end up stealing code from other sites to get the look I want.
And I recently discovered my Yahoo IM account has like 15Mb web space associated with it. Hmmm.
To this end, I have created a small site to hone my web design skills and promote tasteful ripping and murdering of other peoples code. When I feel like I’m done with it, I’ll zip the whole thing up and distribute it. Till then, you can look at it @ http://geocities.com/jamesthegecko. Feel free to rip anything neat you come across.
The reasons that this at GeoCities instead of my normal f2o account are:
- I’m too lazy to open my ftp client.
- GeoCities pretty much FORCES you to think small. A bit *too* small, imho. With a 20Kb site, if you got digg’D, they’d only let in about 250 people an hour. But still. Its good practice.
- Keeps me from cheating and throwing in server-side stuff. Though I probably DO need to hone my PHP some, too. Junk.
