Thanks, Jack. As I recall, I used the Netscape browser also at the time. The Web was vastly different when I started using it. Before it became commercialized. It was much more grassroots. I started using Macromedia Dreamweaver when it was released to build my websites. Which was easier than hand-coding them, as you could make your own page templates and use those. It was more visual.
I basically used the “learn only as much as you need to know to get the job done” approach. LOL! I never took any courses or went to college. I just bought books and learned from them.
