I got trolled once because of the way my website looked. I must admit, it did age a bit, but at the time I built it, using ADO.NET, ASP.NET Webforms (ASPX) and Master Pages, it was a pretty cool and sophisticated website for it’s time. Here is a tribute to my old C# blog look and feel.
The landing page
I made all those images by hand and making a diagonal line was no simple task, I can code a little, but will admit to not being an artist.
I manually updated the Most Recent Blogs each time I wrote a new blog. Isn’t that a nice layout and the Cloud Tag is rather impressive I must admit.
The blog page
The navigation pane contained the following items. I retrieved the Stats with each page render, turned out to be quit a load on the database. The Archive was generated by hand, updated with each blog post. The content was manually written, it wasn’t stored on a database.
If you clicked on the Archives for the given month, you would see this pretty GridView list box.
A page dedicated to C# Fundamentals.
I learned a lot about building website and consider this a project as well as a way to share my coding experiences. I use and continue to use what others write and experience so much in my life, that I and we must continue that behavior so we progress this forward, faster and better. The 90’s was a great decade, but it only got better and keeps getting better all the time.
