My homepage has been essentially the same since I registered TMtm in 1996. Every 6 months or so I’d check to ensure all the links still worked, remove those that had vanished, fix those that had moved, and add a few new ones. Then I’d forget all about it again for another 6 months.

Although it moved to a CSS-based ‘design’ in June 1997, the HTML gradually grew old, and crufty, and nasty. The Perl code that produced the page became cringeworthy. The overlib JavaScript library I’d been using to make the links slightly more obvious stopped working on modern browsers, but I never got around to upgrading it.

Today, I finally cleaned the whole thing up. I threw the entire thing away and started again from scratch. Hopefully in 7 years time I’ll look back and think this version was horrible too.
