First off, I made this page and the other pages on this site FOR ME.
(or more accurately, the pages in the directory this file is and all sub-directories, not necessarily the directories above this one)
I made them over the years because I prefer to have information localized in one spot.
These files were never actually meant to be online, I kept them on my various devices so I would have the information available even if I had no internet access.
My writing style tends to be fragmented and ...
[end of thought]
I am not a writer and failed english class in school many times,
My problem was not input but rather a difficulty getting words out.
As I write, it takes a few minutes of thinking of the rite words to put in, over thinking and ... brain working too fast for hands to write/type.
Spelling, grammer, (other writing terms) I am not good with.
Coding languages are much simpler and say exactly what they mean. That I can do.
... rambeling, half-thoughts, off topic ideas, lists, anti-lists, I usually just type, edit, rearrange and whatever aslong as I can.
It is rare that I get into a typing mood so these types of pages are few and far between.
The majority of the information on these pages I copied, collected and compiled from various sources because it was information I looked for.
I rarely use any web design software, prefering instead to use simple text editors, ie. DOS's edit.com (com as in dos command not url .com) or gedit in linux.
To save space, I usually don't include closing tags for <tr> and <td>. (probably some others but can't think of them now.)
I prefer not to indent nested tags, rather, I try to keep as much of a line of tags on the same editor line especially when it comes to tables.
Keeping the entire <tr> on one line helps me arrange the table.
Common styles for my pages include: over use of <br> for every sentence, lack of <p>, pages centered
I learned most html from reverse engineering webpages in the 90s and early 2000s.
From 2002-2010 I didn't really learn much with reguards to web design.
Starting somewhere in 2011-2012 (don't remember when exactly) I started picking it back up. HTML and CSS were first.

Strangely, I have never learned any actual "Computer Programming Languages", I tried "starting to learn" several languages but never had any goal or project so never got anywhere.
My first computer language was AutoLISP, List programming for AutoCAD r14. I went to school for drafting and worked using autocad for a while, so I created scripts to speed the drawing of countertops in 5% of the time it normally took. When I dropped out of 'colledge' and no longer worked in drafting, I gave up on that language.
Another language I learned was LSL, Linden Scripting Language, for SecondLife. I usually would find an item and try to replicate its scripts, never to make money but just for the challenge. I made my own teleporter that was simpler and wider ranging than most others I had found, made my own lighting scripts that worked any number of lights anywhere on the sim, and several other smaller 'toys'. One of my friends there raced cars and I practically rebuilt the driving controll scripts for him cleaner and better than the ones he started with. He would pass me a script he was having trouble with and I would pass it back fixed before he finished explaining what it wasn't doing that he wanted it to do.
Some YouTube videos I found that may help you understand me a little.
Finally, as I stated earlier, I made this for me. If you don't like it, go somewhere else.
