My First Website

1999 was the time when DotCom zoom was at the top gear. That was the time when what ever you touch would turn into gold. That was the time when every parent wanted their kids to develop some website and make big bucks. At a tender age of 18 when u see that anyone can make money by just putting up a webpage, then one will get a feeling that in life, money making is a piece of cake! I wasn't far from it either. Even I had the dream to bake the cake ;) and infact I did try to bake it. As a result, I developed my first website http://www.cseng.8m.com . It had (and still has? ) some pretty good content. This website development went on for a while and as the days passed by, the DotCom bubble got burst(pls don't click on any of those ads *lol* ). My webpages were stranded without any updates...even till-date.
Couple of days back when I was thinking what exactly did I learn in my Engineering, the first thing that struck me was my website. I had completely forgot about this website URL. But it didn't take long time for me 2 find it because of the naming conventions that I use.
After a span of 6 years I have rediscovered *My_first_website*. Did anyone of you try to do some similar *bake the cake* stuff? If yes, URL pls :D
Pls don't forget to comment on the UI design of *My_First_Website* ;)

@Enigma:
hehe... nothing weird about it.
cseng = ComputerScience&ENGineering
"8m" is the free webhosting server name.
I wanted the name to be just "cse", but there was a restriction on the length of the domain name.

Thanx! :)
