So as I continue playing with this great Bootstrap template I decided to create a 404 page for it. I was racking my brain to think of what a 404 error on this template should look like… then it hit me BSOD. For those who don’t know what BSOD is it is the infamous BLUE SCREEN OF DEATH! Basically since the birth of Windows it been the screen you get when your computer decides it’s time to crap out.
Check mine out here… ohh and by the way pressing any key really does work!
It’s been a while since I had my own web site… which is kinda strange seeing as how I’m a web developer. To be honest I just haven’t needed one for a long time. Plus I never found any designs that really made me say “hey that’s cool” until about a week ago. First I have to say this so people don’t get the wrong idea <ahem> I AM NOT A WEB DESIGNER! <cough> ok now that that’s out of the way…
I came across this while surfing reddit, Bootstrap 386. Once I saw it I was immediately transported back to what life was like pre Windows 3.1… not gonna lie nostalgia trip. Anyway I had finally found a web design that I really liked not because it’s modern or fancy but because it is the ultimate form of retro.
So started the development of the Bootstrap 386 WordPress template. This thing was pretty easy to throw together because kristopolous already did all the hard design work and all I had to do was grab my standard bootstrap ready WordPress base theme and throw in the new CSS and JS.
I wanna thank kristopolous for making this and my year. Here’s to you man! BTW I’m probably gonna help with bringing this project in to BS3 at some point.
