There was a time in 2005 or 2006 that I made about half a dozen geocities accounts over the winter break in high school. I would find very large multi-megabyte pictures of mountains and embed the images into webpages, as many as I could into the 10 MB storage space.
I did this for a maybe five or six sites, then made them all link to each other circularly. The dream was to make websites so large that it took forever to download. This vision was only realized by dial-up users as cable users could load that just fine.
Anyway, I just wanted to share my story of how I got into web development. #confession #webdev
