@wasamasa linking to an old Geocities site reminded me that I, too, created beautiful sites at some point.

Seriously, this looks so much better than anything I've designed in recent years. The page is probably from 2005-something based on that Firefox button, but I believe the layout is a bit older than that.

For anyone wondering: That site hasn't existed for a while now and I let the domain expire.

I also have a still older layout of that site, but the menu and header were Flash animations and won't load anymore. :blobcatnervous:

@ayo
If you ever wanted to recreate it, perhaps look into Neocities. Geocities was awesome though!

@ayo
The header is obviously made of imgs, but what about gradients? Are they -moz-gradient, or are they 1px wide imgs?
@wasamasa

@wolf480pl 100% images.

I was about to add "100% tables", but that's not true. Looks like that was my "tables are bad, let's use position:absolute divs everywhere" phase.
