The name Kilted Viking was coined by a cousin and refers to my Swedish-Scottish ancestory and me owning a kilt. Needing a web server to place my home pages on (as I quit my job where I hosted my site then), I decided to register kiltedviking.net.
Multimedia has never been my thing... so I usually try to make my web sites as simple as possible. This site consists of a bunch of home pages with 5 images (logo and four corners in all home pages, not counting photos from my travels, etc. :-). The home pages are usually edited as text (nowadays in Notepad++, but previously in Crimson Editor), as to not destroy any design features (what design you might ask? :-) and to make sure they work as I want them to. My home pages are then viewed (tested) in Mozilla Firefox (and, if I remember/can be bothered, M$ Internet Explorer). The Web Design Group's web site and reference documents have been a great help to me (for many years). A big thanks goes to them!
How do I come up with my designs then? I usually steal ideas from home pages I visit. :-) Sometimes I manage to make these ideas work in my own pages and sometimes I don't. I have also spent the last 11-12 years as a webmaster (editing, not designing the sites! :-), giving me some experience.
My logo (top left of page) is based on a photo of a sunset (behind my aunt and uncles house, and which I took with my instamatic camera back in 2002, i.e. it's scanned). On my Swedish pages I use a photo of my old house as a logo (which I took with my first digital camera). (People nagged me to change it to a photo of my caravan, where I used to live. And so I have on my travel pages. :-)
A FavIcon, or Favorite Icon, is the small icon in the Address field of your browser and in browser's bookmarks/favorites. My FavIcon is based on my logo (om English pages, i.e. the sunset) and I used HTML-Kit's online service to create mine.
(See <link> tag with attribute containing "favicon.ico" in the code for this page to see how to insert a FavIcon in your own page, should your server not do it for you.)
