About This Page

There is a fair amount of "elementary" JQuery attached to this page. For me, once upon a time, it was a learning platform, where I shamelessly tried to incorporate all the stuff I read about, hence a few overly exotic effects.

The data for the images are stored in a PHP class as static data. Ultimately I wanted to store this data in a database, and, if logged in, not only fetch it from the database, but be able to alter it, per the background text color and background color, as well as the background position.
