Been spending the last week teaching myself Play, Scala, Bootstrap, jQuery, OAuth and a bunch of equally stupidly named technologies.

Web development sure was easier back in 1997, when all we needed was a CGI specification, an HTML specification (I’m probably still listed as official translator for HTML 4.01), and a Pascal compiler. Then we’d whip up our own web development language and get cracking.

Aah, frames, Javascript scrollers, under construction badges, visitor counters and guestbooks, Java chat applications, Geocities, and badges supporting tons of things nobody really supported. Those were simpler days.

My first online game from 1998 or thereabouts; complete with graphics only a retard could l̶o̶v̶e̶ l̶i̶k̶e̶ a̶c̶c̶e̶p̶t̶ tolerate and a perpetual “under construction” badge conceptually adorning each page: (it’s naturally in Danish because that’s the language of yore).
