About The Website Design
My approach to everything computers has traditionally been minimalistic. I detest bloat. Modern websites tend towards such bloat that they load slow even on modern computer hardware, and function so poorly on older hardware that they are impracticle, if not impossible to use.
I want my website to load and display on your computer device no matter how old or slow it may be. Yet I want my website to look nice and be accessible by modern computer hardware. And I want it to look nice when viewed on a tablet or phone.
To this end I have coded my website by hand to reduce "bloat" while still maintaining a pleasing, modern look and feel. A good example of this are the videos you'll see on my website. They appear to be embedded into my webpages. They are not! Embedded videos tend to slow down or crash older, slower computers and phones. To get around this I display a picture of a video which is actually a link to where that video is found on YouTube, where most devices, no matter how old or slow, can view them to their best ability.
I have employed other strategies as well, all designed with these goals in mind. I may be the only peson on the planet who looks at web design like I do. It wouldn't be the only way I'm unique. :)
