5. Site technical notes.

5a. This site uses responsive code. This means that it's supposed to work on your phone.

5b. https, i.e., SSL, support is provided by Let's Encrypt.

5c. The original content on this site may ultimately be released under Creative Commons.

5d. This site is hand-written HTML5 and CSS3 plus a bit of JS and Bootstrap. Just like Grandmother used to bake.

More about the theme:

The theme is largely OldCoder's own design. The goals are: simple, responsive, practical. Like OldCoder :P

Note to CoRNeRNoTe: The template is new except for the background images that you provided. Thanks for the idea of breaking pages up vertically into Minetest environment zones.

Responsive tables are based on a nice trick documented by Chris Coyier in a 2011 CSS Tricks article.

OldCoder's version of the tables code adds support for multiple tables with different structures on the same page. Transitions are also smoother in general.
