Version 1 - circa 2016

This was one of the first sites I made, and it was the first I put online. This was back in middle school, and I had no idea about hosting - I ended up going with a shady, Russian web host, and because of that the site was blocked on school computers.

I made the buttons in a pirated install of Photoshop CS6, and the globe logo in 3DS Max running in DOSbox.

Version 2 - circa April 2017 - circa October 2017, and briefly brought back later

This was my first experiment with CSS (V1 was written in raw HTML) as well as with JavaScript (notice the 'toggle menu' button).

Version 3 - circa October 2017 - circa December 2017

You'd be surprised at how proud I was about having a dropdown menu. I recently opened it in my browser, and now the menu is broken. Sad.

Version 4 - circa December 2017 - 25 February 2018

This one was me expressing a weird obsession I had with boxes. It also had a marquee, and lots of widgets. And a bunch of 'stickers' I made at the bottom (one says I use Windows - what was I thinking?)

Version 5 - 25 February 2018 - 3 April 2020

Version 5 lasted a while, and was the last site I hosted with GitHub. When I got my own server, I decided to change things around.

Version 6 - 3 April 2020 - 7 August 2020 (Nickname: "Rocket Pop")

This is the first site I made that could reasonably be considered 'good.' Mobile-friendly, reasonably straightforward, and nice-looking. The only reason I changed it was because I wanted something that was simpler, but this site is still on the table for if I ever want to revert. I keep all my old sites.

Version 6-B - 7 August 2020 - December 2020 (Nickname: "Halloween")

I can't call this one a 'new version,' as all I did was change the stylesheet and move my picture down. I did this to make it look simpler. This site rejects what the Internet has become, and on top of that, looks cool.

Version 7 - December 2020 - May 2021

This one eliminated the menu on each page and added a zero-frills index on the homepage.

Version 8 - May 2021 - Present

This one made the page more neutral and semi-professional while still keeping it simple.
