CS Purim Party Megilat HaMuamad (Apr. 16, 2006)

My website is exactly as I want it to be: (Dec. 31, 2005)

  1. Simple to develop manually: a simple text editor always works and unconditionally portable.
  2. Easy to watch: no heavy stuff - fast download on slow connections (fireworks are not welcome).
  3. Easy to watch: everything is portable - can be viewed using any browser.
  4. No frames: you always know the URL of the page you watch, and you can correctly link/save/print anything you want. "Back" button works.
  5. Safe to watch: neither cookies, nor Java Scripts nor any technique that may exploit the viewer's computer.
  6. No hypes: if you are not impressed by the contents of the page, I will not try to impress you using any gimmick.
