Q: Why do you have a Brutalist Website?
- Brutalist sites tend more toward inherent cross-browser and universal device compatibility, and are generally more lightweight and responsive to use. It's viewable and functional and appears quickly on Safari on an iPhone, or on Android Chrome, or on basically any windows browser.
- Also, the lack of additional hooks to databases, ad network hosting services, etc. make the administration pretty trouble free.
- Brutalist sites also tend not to use an excessive amount of bandwidth.
Finally, there is the not completely insignificant fact that I'm a bit both cheap and lazy. The tools I had at hand were best suited to an approach that had me keep it simple and stop massaging and embellishing things once the page did what I meant it to do. Now that I could do otherwise, I really would rather not sacrifice the site's simplicity for the sake of a dubious gain in aesthetic quality.
Q: Who designed the website?
A: I did.
Q: Who coded the website?
Q: With what kind of editor?
A: vim, a text editor. Firefox was also pretty heavily used to debug and test the site.
