About the design

You may be thinking that the page hasn't loaded correctly or that something is wrong with the server, but that is not the case! The retro aesthetics this website has been designed with are a throwback to the early days of the internet when most pages were just text and links.

Why you may ask?

There are two primary reasons for the design decision. The first being the ease of editing, creating and publishing content to it. I'm not a web designer, nor do I want to be, so the simple layout and design makes my life much easier.

The second reason is this is a website for technology. Whether the resources here are being used by me or someone else, the layout makes everything easily searchable and findable. No unfriendly drop-down menus, no weird formatting errors and its readable on desktop and mobile without 100s of lines of code.
