Really retro website!

waaaay-retro home page

I came across Mark Woodman’s homepage this morning and was well impressed by it. It is all done by client side scripting and as you can see from the screen shot above, it renders like a terminal window. Even this is configurable so if you are more comfortable in a DOS prompt, click on the DOS link and presto, you have your C:\>

One thought on “Really retro website!”

  1. Thanks, Tom!

    A while back I decided to overhaul my website, but I was feeling especially anti-Photoshop at the time and didn’t want to redo a bunch of graphics. My designs got more and more spartan until I just said, “Screw it. I’m going to do a console. That’ll be easy to update.”

    The only downside: None of my non-geek friends or family have any idea how to use it. They usually say, “Your site is broken. All I got was some weird text.” Guess I can’t win. 🙂
