my first dabblings were on free web space (a subdomain) provided by my ISP
I still have one of those from the last century - 12 Mb of space, no server-side scripting - that I have managed to keep alive by using the dialup account occasionally (even though the original company has changed hands several times since).
I didn't expect it to last this long (my other dialup accounts didn't). The only question now is whether the company will unilaterally turn it off before my last remaining modem dies.
My one regret is not finding WebmasterWorld until 2001 (I used something called "books").
I am certainly not nostalgic about writing different markup for different browsers.
