If you've read my site bio you know that before I started building sites professionally I made them for fun for the various quake clans I was in. Recently I was trying to find my Vietcong play discs and came across an old dusty CD tittled "Snider, web + art". I give you, dear readers, some of the contents from that disc. As you know I'm pretty supportive of anyone trying to learn how to make the web a profession and I hope this truly amateur work from my early days inspire any young nerds out there to stick with their work, because you eventually do get better.  
 
Also, holy shit. Look at that fucking poser tough guy image!

What?  Where's all the Photoshop lens flare and emboss?  You call this 90's web design!?

Nice work! Better than what I could do anyway. Especially that last one. I may have you beat in facial hair, but I'm also pretty flabby.  
 
But it's always fun to look over old stuff from back in the day. I remember '99 like it was only 11 years ago...

Also, I'm pretty sure at one point The Borg Collective was ranked #2 in the OGL for Rocket Arena 2. We were actually really really good.

We've all gotta start somewhere innit?
It does aspiring artists and the like good to see that sometimes even the gods had to work to get to their positions, makes it that little more obtainable.

Maybe in retrospect 90s web design has gotten worse for me, but this stuff looks pretty damn good by 90s standards

Pretty sure the song playing on winamp is Motion Picture Soundtrack. I was a big Radiohead fan back in the day.

Wow. Oh. Oh, wow. Dave used to be one of those guys that I can't stand. One of those wife beater guys. And what more, a short-hair, goatee wife beater guy.

I wonder what BiffMcBlumpkin will have to say when he sees that last image :P 
 
Obviously the quality of your work has improved since 1999, but has the methodology on how you go about it changed much?

I think the craziest thing is that in 1999 the matrix still meant something!

I like how all the pictures that show the toolbar were taken around 5-6 in the morning. Thus proving that the internet is best made at ungodly hours. Also, the 90's; when wifebeaters were a sign of badassness and not redneckedness.

1999 Dave still had tons of pimples and was a complete nerd. Very obviously a picture taken with a timer in the loneliness of one's crappy apartment to look tough! This was the embarrassing point of one's late adolescence where you'd collect empty bottles of booze you'd recently drank to show how much culture you had.

1999 Dave don't take no shit from nobody....in Rocket Arena 2.  
Good stuff, though. You were on those web standards more so then most designers, much less an amateur one.

...you looked like you were ready to go out back and train pitbulls to be fight dogs while listening to Eminem.  LOL  Don't worry.  Back in 1999, I looked like a skinny Ethiopian that smoked too much pot and watched The Crow a few too many times.  OH THE PAST!!! 
 
The web design stuff ain't bad, especially for that time frame.  What were you using, just HTML?  I tried HTML once.  I quit when I made this abomination.  I can't believe the fucker is still up.  Hey, like I said...I watched The Crow a few too many times!!!  Also, yes...that says "webrings" on there!  WEBRINGS, DAVE!!!

@jakob187: I was mostly using Dreamweaver so that I could build awesome nested table layouts. Almost all of these sites had awesome flash intros.

I feel like some of those sites should have advertisements saying that I'm the 3 millionth user to visit their site and need to provide my credit card number to get a fantastic award.
