The glorious times of yore, when giant Java applets walked Devearth trampling down IE – the only browser known to Devkind.
The dark ages, when CSS sorcerers were called designers.
The romance of the hardest decision to take – to depend or not on the helping magical hand of the mysterious brothers Quirks Mode and Xml Prolog.
When listening to the call of the Async was considered heresy.
When XHTML was unthinkable…
When Web 2.0 was just an obscure idea (and remained such).
It’s gone now.
