My initial attempts at creating websites…

Hmm…. I never thought I will find it again… While going through some of old CDs, I found earlier sites created during my four year degree course in Computer Engg at PICT.

  1. 1999-2000 – This was the first attempt while I was in my Third year..was quite obsessed with DHTML… 🙂

There is still final version of site still trying to find…. something for this weekend…
