Sometimes I’m amazed at how an experiment started 13 years ago turned into my livelihood today. While AALBC.com will not likely a publicly traded company or become a household name like Facebook or Google. It is special to me and a lot of other people.
I used to code web sites, by hand, writing HTML. After Microsoft released the web development application called FrontPage in 1996; I started a business, building web pages for others. In October of 1997 I decided to build my own website. The screen shot of the “Under Construction” homepage is below:
In 2006 Microsoft discontinued FrontPage. However I continued using it until 2009 when it became obvious I needed to rebuild the site to eliminate the dependency on FrontPage and take advantage of newer technologies. The changes were actually quite extensive; though the casual visitor would probably not notice as most of the changes were “under the hood”. A recent screen shot is shown below:
AALBC.com is constantly under going changes while constantly growing. This is the most challenging part of maintaining the AALBC.com website. While I hope I make it took easy, I assure you it is not 🙂
