The web is now complete! Bosze Oliver’s Home Page gives you the goods on it all!
Mr. Oliver is apparently the authority on everything.
You'll find links to over 90 airlines, The greatest bands on earth, and my personal favorite Taboo Words.
If this doesn't strike your fancy then he'll teach you English!

I think I'm missing the joke. Is this funny cause the guy is foreign, or because he's weird? Or both?
I'm getting old, I think.

Did you see the link to his friend's website? It's even better!! It has a -SPINNING GLOBE- animated gif collection. I'm not providing a link because I don't think the server could handle the flood.

To give the guy some credit, this was launched back in Sept 97 - making it a pretty typical amateur page for that time frame. The most recent update I could find on the page was summer of 1999.

It certainly isn't pretty, and his web skills don't seem to have matured much in the 2 years that he maintained this thing.

But still - he doesn't make any kind of claim to design expertise. Let's do an experiment: Everyone who is completely comfortable with the web work they did back in 1997 raise their hand. (You will notice I am now sitting on my hands - the work I did in 1997 was pretty weak by today's standards)

My favorite is on his friends page. The javascript ticker at the top asking if anyone is interested in taking out an ad...

What an unfortunate thread.

Say, can we see the very first websites of everyone here? I would guess that they weren't too far removed from this.

He probably sings a mean Hatt Baby as well...

What happened to all of the fun in the world?

What happened to simply ignoring threads you don't happen to like?

What happened to thoughtfulness and consideration?

What happened to MetaTalk?
Oh, wait, there it is.
