And this is the absolutely last page, which is somehow a sub-page of the "about.html" page. However, compare to the other one which is more or less about me (as a person/human), this one deals only with stuff directly related to this hand-crafted website of mine (well, and also with indirectly related things that have at least something to do with it); for instance it deals with topics like everything related to website's design, general usability and SEO stuff etc. Then it also deals with reasons for making it in the first place, the history of important coding and general layout updates etc. Some of the text that is now located here, was moved from the the "intro.html" and "diverse.html" pages. While regarding the "pure CSS future" of my website, see the [ A note on my site becoming... ] paragraph below. Anyways, as the value of my old description meta tag said: "The website will probably deal with just about everything, i.e. with computing and non-computing things (planned for future), however, currenly it is mostly about the computing-related stuff", it indeed still deals almost exclusively with the computing-related stuff. Finally, it also contains various countries from which visitors have visited my website (I get this info with StatCounter: http://www.statcounter.com, in particular through the "Visitor Paths" statistics section), and links to various sites and pages that point/link to my website, however, note that with a very few exceptions, I stopped adding them in 2007.


OK, as first a bit on the website's name/title. The website was first titled simply "TADEJ'S HOME-PAGE" for a really long long time. Then I've first changed the title for the first time ever to "My homepage - The important things I discovered so far in the world of computing", then as second, I've changed the title to "My Home Page - Crucial Stuff, I Discovered In The World Of Computing", then to "Tadej's computing homepage about the important computing stuff discovered so far in the world of computing", then to "Tadej's computing homepage about the important computing stuff discovered so far" (i.e. as you can see, I only removed the "in the world of computing" part), then the fifth time, I've changed the title to "Tadej's computing homepage about the important computing stuff" (i.e. as you can see, I only removed the "discovered so far" part), then to "Tadej's site: my important experiences with desktop computers" (which lasted only for few days), and finally to "Tadej's computing homepage" as it is now. Further, about the various variants of my website. So to finally begin with it: the reason for more than one variant of my website (which is about computing, see link below) is that the first website that I ever made (that was in year 2003) was hosted on my ISP's server (i.e. the space was given to me for free by my ISP), but since it has been displaying its own ads at that time (and therefore it "screwed" the W3C-valid syntax), I soon started to look for another free-host. Note however that all the images, scripts, various other "external" and "support files" and so on, are all still hosted on this one (since it's the only one that supports "remote/hot linking"), so you can imagine that it's quite crucial to me to still use/maintain it.

Therefore, I have created an additional "copy" of this original variant (mentioned in the sentence above) on my other also free dial-up ISP server's space, since I've just created an account one of those days. Then since I already had an account at Yahoo (its free e-mail service) I said to myself, well, if they already offer a free Geocities hosting to me, why not "take advantage" of it. Then also in the meantime, I've created a Bravenet account (I was hoping that it supports "remote" or "hot linking"), and put one copy there too. Then, a year or two later, I have found the Atspace free-host, which was recommended to me as a "better free-hosting" by my fellow member od Ars Technica forums (that was 2004 if I recall correctly), but I wasn't fully content neither with this one, namely Google Search (or rather Google AdSense search) just didn't want to work on it, then the W3C validator also didn't work for its pages etc.; by the way, I guessed back then that it was (and still is) some specific host-related problem, while one other sign of this problem was/is that I couldn't/cannot connect to it through proxy server. And so I've finally registered an account also at 50webs free-host (in year 2005), which is finally an almost perfect free-hosting solution, and I've found 50webs free-host, which now hosts my main variant. And in the end with all these variants of the same website I thought, why to delete the old variants, because (as I also wrote on my website): if I for instance unexpectedly die in the near future or something else happens to me (I loose the access to Internet, or loose my hard-disk with all the documents needed for maintaining the website etc.), this way with more than one website-variant, there is a bigger chance that my sites will be hosted longer (i.e. as far into the future as possible) and more people will see them (and benefit from them), since it's quite possible that the half of these free-hosts will go off-line in the next 5-10 or so years, and also I've used many of these links as signatures on forum posts and blogs comments. But also note that I've stopped to update with new content all those previous variants (i.e. my second free ISP's, Geocities, Bravenet etc.) on 5.6.2006, and additionally I didn't even implement AdSense code/ads on them, i.e. they are just "left" on-line as they are., and Google bots mostly index only the two with AdSense implemented, i.e. as mentioned Volja and 50webs. Finally also note that I didn't know about SEO-rules, about various gebneral website/webmaster guidelines (and also web standards etc.) back then. Oh and one additional reason for all this is also to save some server hard-disk's space, while the other is to have only one copy of an object in my browser's cache.

And as second, regarding my website's visitors. I can now monitor various interesting things with the help of an account at StatCounter: http://www.statcounter.com, http://my.statcounter.com (for details see the "events7.html" page, the "2.4.2006" entry), although Bravenet counters also offers some such info, this one is really more thorough. For example, here is a list of various statistics that it displays: Popular Pages, Entry Pages, Exit Pages, Came From, Keyword Analysis, Recent Keyword Activity, Recent Came From, Search Engine Wars, Visitor Paths, Visit Length, Returning Visits, Recent Pageload Activity, Recent Visitor Activity, Country/State/City/ISP, Browser, System Stats, Lookup IP Address. Particularly the "Visitor Paths" is totally awesome, i.e. with it, I can now see from where my visitors come from. So here is a list of countries of visitors that have visited my Voljatel website-variant so far (the list is frequently updated): Algeria, Argentina, Armenia, Australia (many cities), Bahrain, Bangladesh, Belarus, Belgium, Bolivia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Brazil, Brunei Darussalam, Bulgaria, Canada (many cities), Chile, China (many cities/states), Colombia, Costa Rica, Croatia, Cyprus, Cuba, Czech Republic, Denmark, Dominican Republic, Egypt, Estonia, Ethiopia, Kuwait, Fiji, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Hong Kong, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Jordan, Kenya, Latvia, Lithuania, Libya, Macedonia, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Mexico, Netherlands, Netherlands Antilles, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Oman, Pakistan, Panama, Peru, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Qatar, Republic Of Korea, Republic Of Moldova, Romania, Russian Federation, Saint Kitts And Nevis, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Serbia and Montenegro, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia (many cities), South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, Turkey, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom (many cities), United States (many cities/states), Uruguay, Uzbekistan, Ukraine, Venezuela, Vietnam, Zimbabwe; of course, I will add them also in future when I discover new ones. Also note that this were only first pages out of three, so there were obviously many many other visitor on my home-page from various other countries and cities all over the world. Additionally, most likely I already missed many of them (or rather for sure), since I don't check the stats as often as I think I should.


I am planning to create a separate page that will deal exclusively with the SEO-stuff, but also with various ways of optimizing the website's source-code, i.e. I am talking about optimization like minimizing the number of HTTP requests, removing any empty spaces and orphaned tags, then about my principle to not to have too big .css files, so for instance if I use a particular image-size only on one or two pages I rather use "inline" styling, however, if an element appears on all the website's pages (i.e. through the whole website), then I use "external" styling; I somehow don't use "internal" styling anymore at all, and so on. But for now, I first need to refer you all to a list my favorite SEO tools I will post links to my posts at my "Senserely" blog which all contain a bunch of them; as first there are the two most recent "blog-entries" entitled 7. Seo/webcoding related links: part 2 (26.08.2006): http://www.senserely.com/tayiper-7_seo_webcoding_related_links_part_2_26_08_2006.php, and 6. Seo/webcoding related links: part 1 (26.08.2006): http://www.senserely.com/tayiper-6_seo_webcoding_related_links_part_1_26_08_2006.php, and further two more a bit older entries 5. Planned: two future "book-pages" (26.08.2006): http://www.senserely.com/tayiper-5_planned_two_future_book_pages_26_08_2006.php, and 4. List of my Senserely "book-pages" (25.08.2006): http://www.senserely.com/tayiper-4_list_of_my_senserely_book_pages_25_08_2006.php, and as second to these amazing websites with various design-principles and similar. Although note that my website was made on the similar basis (i.e. really compact code without unnecessary LFs/CRs, space chars (and long sequences of them) and so on; by the way, such code is usually generated by tako kodo namreč zgenerirajo razni WYSIWYG type of software) even before I discovered these websites. Particularly I am talking about the Web Site Optimization website: http://www.websiteoptimization.com, and while you're at it also try the awesome "Web Page Analyzer": http://www.websiteoptimization.com/services/analyze tool, which as it name hints analyzes the chosen page (under "Enter (X)HTML to diagnose:" enter the URL and press "Submit query"), and gives you the information about basic stuff like number and sizes of external/internal objects (XHTML/CSS code, Images, Scripts Frames/Iframes etc.), then the number of separate HTTP requests, download times and so on), and/or buy the "Speed Up Your Site" http://www.websiteoptimization.com/speed book.

But now to other also "must read" websites; as first there is this page with various rules on the Wilsonmar website: http://www.wilsonmar.com, particularly those on the "1rules.htm" page: http://www.wilsonmar.com/1rules.htm, then Jakob Nielsen's "Useit" website: http://www.useit.com; I especially recommend visiting the page containing the "Ten Good Deeds in Web Design (Alertbox Oct. 1999)" article: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/991003.html, and finally on the same "Useit" website the page with "Top Ten Mistakes Revisited (Alertbox May 1999)" article: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/990502.html. However, note that beside the rule that states that: "the single/separate document must not be above 100 kBs in-size, because of the way search-engines cache web- pages", the most important design-related rule would probaly be that: "if you don't know why you're putting *something* somewhere (for instance placing a button or a drop-down-box etc. to some position in particular), then you are most likely making a big mistake". Further, a web-website optimization articles; as first there is yet another Jakob Nielsen's article titled "F-Shaped Pattern For Reading Web Content" on how visitors actually read pages: http://www.useit.com/alertbox/reading_pattern.html (Alertbox, Apr. 2006), then there is a SEO-related article on the "SiteProNews" website titled "The A to Z Guide to Getting Website Traffic": http://www.sitepronews.com/archives/2006/apr/12.html (part 1), http://www.sitepronews.com/index774a.html (part 2), further, there are three MDC articles "Tips for Authoring Fast-loading HTML Pages": http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/Tips_for_Authoring_Fast-loading_HTML_Pages, "Evaluating Website Accessibility Part 1, Background and Preparation": http://developer.mozilla.org/webwatch/?p=173, http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200603/evaluating_website_accessibility_part_1_background_and_preparation, "Evaluating Website Accessibility Part 2, Basic Checkpoints": http://developer.mozilla.org/webwatch/?p=179, http://www.456bereastreet.com/archive/200603/evaluating_website_accessibility_part_2_basic_checkpoints, and then finally an "Extreme XHTML optimization - optimize xhtml code for fast download speed small page size - Chapter 5": http://www.websiteoptimization.com/speed/5 article at Websiteoptimization and a "Speed Up Your Site" article: http://www.sitepoint.com/article/web-design-speed-up-site at Site Point website. Oh and yes, for me the HTML language and the whole web-browsing and website hosting principle etc. are in my opinion definitely the best Internet-related API(s) ever invented. Including my enthusiasm about client vs. server communication concept, IP addresses principle (DNS stuff), other protocols and standards etc.

And one more thing: lately I discovered with the Wayback Machine: http://web.archive.org/web that some of the old states of my home website are actually "captured" on the Internet Archive: http://archive.org. So as first a link to a capture of my first and out-dated http://www.freewebs.com/satyrhosts/index.html site's variant: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.freewebs.com/satyrhosts/index.html, and a link to Oct 16, 2004 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20041016062642/http://www.freewebs.com/satyrhosts/index.html, then a link to an index of the http://shirker.freehost386.com/index.html variant's website "index.html" page archives: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://shirker.freehost386.com/index.html, and a link to the Mar 10, 2005 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20050310173605/http://shirker.freehost386.com/index.html, then a link to a lists of archives of the http://www.satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html site's variant "index.html" page: http://web.archive.org/web/*/http://www.satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html, and a link to the Apr 29, 2004 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20040429055126/http://satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html, Jun 17, 2004 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20040617225406/http://satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html, Oct 10, 2004 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20041010172747/http://satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html, Feb 07, 2005 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20050207112007/http://www.satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html, and Mar 08, 2005 version: http://web.archive.org/web/20050308003235/http://www.satyrhosts2.greatnow.com/index.html. And finally, there is a capture of /index.html site's variant: http://web.archive.org/web/*//index.html; an Nov 16, 2004: http://web.archive.org/web/20041116130706//index.html and Dec 23, 2004: http://web.archive.org/web/20041223190831//index.html versions. And finally unsorted links to various "Volja" site-variant's pages: http://web.archive.org/web/20041116130722/users.volja.net/tayiper/security.html, http://web.archive.org/web/20041116130638/users.volja.net/tayiper/tips-n1.html, http://web.archive.org/web/20041116130710/users.volja.net/tayiper/tips-n2.html, http://web.archive.org/web/20041116130650/users.volja.net/tayiper/theend.html.


Next are links that point only to actual URLs that link to my website (and to pages on them), not directories or SERPs and so forth. So let's start with "walk2web : tadej-ivan.50webs.com's Microblog": http://walk2web.com/site/tadej-ivan.50webs.com (or "Thumbsplus.net url thumbshot Thumbplus.net"), which is the last one that I've discovered, then follow "Thumbnail from tadejpersic.50webs.org/": http://www.thumbsplus.net/sysstats/c34c2170739bca9586da8cbb23e0fde7.html, "tadej : Mloo Blogs": http://www.mloo.com/blogs.php?s=tadej, "Dotage Ivan Webs (tadej-ivan 50webs com) Reviews": http://www.xomreviews.com/tadej-ivan.50webs.com, "Najdi.si - Spletni imenik > Računalništvo in internet > Računalniško izobraževanje": http://www.najdi.si/nk/gettopic.jsp?topic=4cb%2F4cc%2F000%2Fa9a%2Faa6, "Javascript, Messagebox, Message, Script, Alert, Html, V tool": http://www.webmasterstuff.de/2432_javascript+messagebox+info_1.html, "tadej : Mloo Blogs": http://www.mloo.com/blogs.php?s=tadej, "window registry editor version 5.00": http://udz096.org/antivirus/215, "Dependencywalker": http://fight-nicotine-depedency.projectstopsmoking.com/dependencywalker.html, "Text eventvwr microsoft - Links & Common Questions - Sharepoint911 - ...": http://enginearea.com/eger/text-eventvwr-microsoft.htm, "systemtools | www.auto-insurance-directory.info": http://www.auto-insurance-directory.info/systemtools.htm, "System currentcontrolset control session manager memory management": http://1772.uqcfo.info, "netlogon blue screen at startup": http://pllo.info/netlogon-blue-screen-at-startup.php, "user js": http://js.sharelex.com/user_js.html.

Further two references to my site at "Shadows" bookmarking service http://www.shadows.com/tags/command%20tools (an 11th entry), http://www.shadows.com/tags/command?pagenumberCommunitySearch=3, http://www.shadows.com/tags/line?pagenumberCommunitySearch=5 (an entry added by user http://www.shadows.com/users/tagcrawler, tagged as "vmware", "tools", "line", and "command"), then are http://edey.org/spider.php?url=http://www.bmv-design.com and http://edey.org/spider?url=http://www.superklik.com, then http://surffine.com/srfn/bastet-software.htm, which lists references to "Bastet software" (see "cmdline.html" and "software.html" pages), http://www.kwickmarketing.com/directory/Computers_and_Internet/?p=6, then http://www.favoritespage.com/johnnyb/?01698, http://www.mijneigenfavorieten.nl/b/beheerv03/showindexnwzip.cgi?srv=favpcom&u=johnnyb&s= (some Johnny guy's online bookmarks), and finally http://www.showyouwhere.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=related:web.archive.org/web/www.cuteseller.com (archived version), http://www.nationmaster.com/encyclopedia/List-of-computing-and-IT-abbreviations (already linked on the "glossary.html" page), further: http://microvascular.blog2.theviewblog.com/1143332348.html (it says "persic WSL Persic" on it), and: http://msxml.infospace.com/_1_8YFTZY0SUVFF5__isight.main/search/web/.../.../Moderate/0/1 (titled "Search error 32768 while installing windows xp - Insight"), then: http://update.cappuccinoscorner.com/index.php?k=v6.00pg (it's titled "V6.00pg - The Biggest Update Source On The Internet"), following with: http://www.audiointerface.fossilfuels.be/aldl-interface/impotant-features-of-human-computer-interface.html (on page "Impotant Features Of Human Computer Interface - Aldl Interface - www.audiointerface.fossilfuels.be"), and then with: http://www.bacteriafaq.com/muse/maxi_sound_muse.html ("Maxi sound muse, musical muse, muse pasadena"), then finally the last one that I've discovered: http://anencephaly.blog1.bloggedsite.com/1143761186.html (says "persic Transports" on it)

A note on website becoming entirely CSS-based

As I wrote in entry dated "30.5.2005" on "events2.html" page (see linked threads below), that I'm planning to make my home-website completely CSS-based, meaning that I will use exclusively CSS instead of tables (as I do for pages under "root-main" section) and also that I'll rather use an external .css file instead of "inline" and "internal" styling. As you probably know, using CSS for styling separates website's content from style (layout, behavior etc.), i.e. it separates it from presentation. But I had quite a few problems with the syntax so I started inspecting various other CSS-based sites and noticed that for example Sysinternals website has this same problem that I had. However, some of these purely CSS-based sites (the ones with both, a Header and a Footer), are just written in a way that the boxes go nicely one beneath another no mather how far the window is shrinked horizontally. Also, as far as I understand all this, the Header, Content and Footer boxes should be positioned statically, while Left and Right boxes absolutely, however, this only works if the Content div is taller than the Left and Right divs.

Later, I opened a few related topics on Ars Technica forums, particularly the A beginner's question on CSS (long links and huge text jut out of the boxes)Ars Technica 12 x 12 pixels icon http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=50009562&f=6330927813&m=527003753731&r=318009704731 and Last few problems with making my homesite completely CSS-based, please HELPArs Technica 12 x 12 pixels icon http://episteme.arstechnica.com/eve/ubb.x?a=tpc&s=50009562&f=6330927813&m=468009704731&r=468009704731 threads. I posted both threads also on other forums (beside Ars Technica), for instance on CastleCops, Winforums and Techiwarehouse forums; I really recommend you to visit them so you can understand the problem at all.

The first problem:

The original template that I've used to "merge" my website with was: http://urlgreyhot.com/files/css/css-3col-1.html.

And here are my examples where "links being jut-out" problem is clearly visible: /css-example-1.html, /css-example-2.html (and for the comparison with the latter one), /css-example-3.html.

The second problem:

The template used for "merging" was same as above; here's a link to it on my FTP: /3c-hd-ft-flex.htm.

Here are my examples, where some sort of "layering" problem is clearly visible: /index-example-1.html, /index-example-2.html (and for the comparison with the latter one), /index-example-3.html.

Here are the links to the "CSS layout" files that I used with the examples above: /layout-example-1.css, /layout-example-2.css, /layout-example-3.css.

/UPDATE: Well, from the 28 of May 2006 on, I started using an "external" way of styling with CSS compare to "internal" CSS-styling (and a bit of "inline" too) that I've used so far; here is a link to the "root.css" file: /root.css that I am now using on all the website's pages. But I rather recommend you to see the "events7.html" page, the "28.3.2006" entry for more details.
