I used it not only to display some personal information, but also as a test bed for some new ideas and coding.
The site was heavily PHP coded with implementation of several MySQL databases enabling to perform tasks such as randomizing elements, displaying certain features depending on user’s input, easy updating (Content Management System) as well as integration with CSS.
The underlying code was table-less transitional XHTML with CSS styling.
The site was designed from scratch by yours truly, using mostly Photoshop and a bit of Illustrator.
Site was also optimized for search engines.
Please note that the web site is not live anymore.
