Hello and welcome to my website, styled in the format of the Commodore 64 !
Programming in the early 80's required serious effort - Nobody else to ask when something didn't work! Regular visits to the library renewing books that sometimes got reserved and it would do my head in! Looking back now I can see the "geek" in me was there from an early age. I got into BASIC programming in 1982 with the Vic20 when my brothers we're out causing havoc ! This gave me lots of time to type out programs from books and test the results. Go back over every line of code to see where I'd gone wrong, correct any mistakes and get it going! The biggest killer of all was typing out a massive program perfectly, to find that the code in the book was wrong, so the end result was bugged! If you can overcome that shit, you must have OCD or a passion for programming... or both ! That said, there were a lot of pleasures from seeing the end results of all the hard child labour involved lol.
Remember adjusting that little screw in the tape device to "load/listen" the game you'd taped off your mate? Sometimes it took time but it was worth it for a game that would last for hours on end ;) Technology has moved on so dramatically since then. That's why I'm trying to re-emulate the picture you saw at that time, a kind of retrograde throw-back. I'm in the early learning stages of CSS and HTML so I appreciate this site may not look like the way I want it to in all browsers, but I'm working on that too ! Having recently discovered a website called codepen.io I have found that CSS and Java are not the only languages used to code up websites. In particular, SCSS or SAS is the new thing for me. Having variables is making a massive difference to the time it would otherwise take to code up an amination. I'm still very new to this but my mind is always hungry for more so expect some changes to this site and why not check me out on codepen at www.codepen.io/stezzer
Special thanks to pixelambacht for the decrunch effect on my website, that's some nifty CSS dude, many thanks ~_^
