    Want to laugh at my school internet site?

    Right firstly..

    I had NOTHING to do with this site, NOTHING, well other than uploading it. It's a monstrocity, a waste of web server space and I campaigned for weeks for us not to use it and instead for me to sit and make a new one from scratch. It was created by two sixth years in 2006 and by god did they do a poor job.

    Please note:

    1. the use of BMPs as graphics
    2. the spam advertising on the pages
    3. the annoying use of EVERYTHING
    4. EVERYTHING
    5. oh and lack of titles at the top.

    Honestly, I'm ashamed, but at the same time laughing my backside off.

    Prepare to be stunned.
    Prepared to laugh like a laughing hyena on laughing gas which just watch the Two Ronnies episode with the "four candles" joke..

    I'll second Webman!

    How long does it take to load!! I could've read War and Peace by the time the page finished downloading! Admittedly I'm at home, but it's still a 1Meg broadband connection :s

    I love how the picture of the school hasn't even been resized just used the sizes in the image tag to resize it.

    I would but they've all left school now!

    I've suggested that it's used as a project for 5th/6th year pupils doing higher computing and that if they need any help I'll gladly give them it - if it helps get rid of this thing!

    Well, atleast it's better than the crap that forntpage generates.... :P

    That's where WYSIWYG gets you - inline styles, absolutely-positioned boxes, 41 validation errors!

    I think my own personal highlight is the expression on the face of your headmaster - tell me, did they take it at the same time as showing him the website for the first time?
