I have been meaning to build a personal website for oh, seven odd years, but never seemed to get round to it - or started one which was soon abandoned. However, now having some free time on my hands I decided it was time to bite the bullet and do it properly. I registered the domain name leobs.net and set to work on 3rd January 2012.
This explains the somewhat sparse nature of my site at the moment: it's early days. In time I hope to build a comprehensive personal and retro website brimming with content.
I'm doing it for three reasons. One is to create a web presence for myself and the things I consider interesting. Two is the pleasure and challenge of coding a website, and Three is to express my creativity. I am doing this primarily for my own amusement. I'm humble enough to realize that it will probably be of little interest to anyone who doesn't know me, and that's OK - though I'm hoping that the stuff on eg interactive fiction and retrogaming may reach a slightly wider audience. If it does and people find it entertaining then that's great.
The website was written using the excellent CoffeeCup HTML Editor. Web hosting provided by 50Webs. Recommended if you're looking for a free, no ads web hosting service with few restrictions and good customer support. Who said there's no such thing as a free lunch
