My name is Daniel Mak, I am 18 years old turning 19 in a month and a half. I am currently attending Seneca College for Computer Programming and Analysis. This site is intended to be week 3 lab showing my xhtml knowledge.
This is a site I made during ULI101 class on Monday. It is coded in W3 valid xhtml 1.0 transitional code as well as CSS valid. The design was made with Photoshop and was sliced and saved in PNG format. The coding was done during class as well using Notepad on the laptop running Microsoft Windows XP. Total time took on this website including the design and slicing, no more than 1 hour.
I have an interest in programming, which is why I enrolled in the Computer Programming and Analysis program. I took Computer Science all throughout high school working with Turing, Visual Basic and JAVA. I taught myself HTML, xHTML and CSS during my spare time lookign at web tutorials and started making websites about 3 years ago. I rely heavily on tables, but I am slowly attempting to move to tableless designs and only using tables for data structure only.
I first started making websites using Yahoo's site builder tool approx 3-4 years ago, moved my way to using Microsoft Frontpage a few months after that, then started using Dreamweaver a few weeks after that until I got the hang of HTML coding. Currently using mostly Notepad to code HTML, XHTML and CSS
During my free time and when I'm at home, I usually play around on the computer. I currently have a machine running Microsof Windows Vista RC1 Build 5600 and will be upgrading it to 5728 this weekend, I also enjpy overclocking my computers which unfortunantely voids warranty with the manufacture. I've overclocked both my Central Processing Unit as well as my Graphics Card to pretty impressive speeds. I currently operate 2 machines side by side at home and have a Media Center machine made out of old computer parts running Windows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Both my main machines are 64-bit compatible and includes 2GBs of system memory.
