Had a request for this start page, so I'm going to release it.

It's a mess and it's HTML5 based. Mostly, it's a mess.

The CSS is in the header, so no need for a separate file for it.
The structure of the It's nested lists, which I style for the whole nav rather than using classes. Basically, you'll see things like this: nav ul li ul li {}.

Of course, if all you want to do is change the colors - that's simple. The background is #1C1C1C, 'white' foreground is #DDEEDD, and the green color is #B7CE42. The font in use is Terminus. Find and replace will work wonders to change those.

Any questions? Lemme know.

Meh. I'll never stop using a blank page and just firing off sites from the autocomplete in the chrome bar. When you're taking administration cues from an interface element, something is wrong with your operating.

I don't understand what you mean by 'taking administration cues from an interface element'. Care to explain?

I hate thinking, what should I do now, and deciding using my bookmarks. My reddit addiction is bad enough without there being any cues pointing me back there, Haha. If I had something that says, remember reddit? Remember this icon? why don't you click me and go back there? I would never get a break.

It's an idea from back when I would consider what a system that operated the operator would be like. I decided that usually the interface should avoid making suggestions on what the user should be doing with their time.
I think it makes the experience more controlled, even though it's only a cosmetic change.

But maybe it's just the way I work. Kinda like a rat in a skinner box. No sense of time or purpose.

But then I did read on reddit there is a large contingent of hackers who have set 'about:blank' as their home page. It could be a common problem.

I rarely use bookmarks. I figure that, since I visit so few websites on a regular basis, I already remember what they are so I just make it easier for me to get there.

Bookmarks are great for remembering obscure things that I will want again eventually, but are outside my normal browsing routine. (For instance, I have certain recipes filed away under bookmarks. I also have game walkthroughs bookmarked, but since I have a tendency to remember the URL, it's just easier for me to type it in again and let autocomplete take me back there.)

I've now got it in my dropbox page so that I have the same one on my desktop and netbook and anything else I want :)

Really good idea, man - I'll think about doing something similar (though I can just upload mine to my webhost so that might work easier)

Good point. I like using dropbox for things though, it feels far more novel than uploading stuff to ftp :P
