I've had this personal web site going for... jeez, more than 10 years now. I'm pretty sure the impetus for the whole thing was a goofy fantasy basketball league I ran called "The Nibl". That said, I've had a number of long periods of inactivity/disrepair. So be it!
My web site was originally hosted at my dial-up provider, ntsource. I snarfed the williamt.com domain in February of 2000. I did this re-org and started my blog in December 2007.
My name is Bill Krieger. Go:
- I live here in beautiful Naperville, IL.
- I have two wonderful, beautiful kids: Holly (24) and Ty (8).
- I'm a nerd with a BSCS from Illinois and MSCS from UIC.
- I teach part-time at North Central College. I also have a volunteer gig at St. Ethelreda School, a Catholic elementary school in Chicago.
Here's the plan:
- I expect to blather on and on and on in my blog
- I'll use my flickr account to add photos
- New fantasy leagues (baseball and football) and titles (cough) will be added to my fantasy page
- As I find them, I'll add web sites that I use or find interesting to my favorites page. This page will be my misfit page for all kinds of stuff.
There's a bunch of old stuff in my archive. It's pretty funny. A lot of the pictures are tiny to save download time over a dialup connection. The design aproach is, um, minimal. He he!
You can search my stuff using the google gadget below:
Creating this siteI use Kompozer to edit web pages, and it's free... but it kind of sucks too. It mangles your HTML for some reason, and it doesn't handle CSS very well. I'm typing a lot in WordPad these days. Sigh. You can grab Komposer is at www.kompozer.net
I use and heart Open Source Web Design (OSWD). It's at www.oswd.org. OSWD is a collection of CSS web templates. It's super easy to use and has worked out great for me. Two templates I have used are:
- This page is based on "GGGDesign - Simplicity" by the guy at www.gggdesign.com
- The cool sort-of splash page at www.williamt.com is based on "deep" by Chris at www.chrisblunden.co.uk
Thanks you guys for the help!
That's a wrap
Thanks for coming. I'd love to hear from you.
thanks... yow, bill (firstname.lastname@example.org)
