In my experience, this Web page is the antithesis of how a programmer
creates a Web page. Generally I've found that they like them simple and
lightweight. Even the uber-geek page is light on graphics,
flash and other irksome Webgnats.

This page reeks of creation-by-artistic-committee syndrome. It is far
more interested in its own asthetics than usability or any other base
concerns. DB.
