Small quiet Sunday afternoon project. Build a webpage in the style of the Commodore 64 BASIC V2 environment.

The site is responsive, with the light blue border and a font size that keeps the 40 column width as the window is resized.


The CSS was fun to build out, (vh and vw FTW!), and it was the first time I used css properties along with calc and var . I love how calc lets you mix units like so

(1vw * 40) - 5em

a lot of hidden power

If you view it in Google Chrome, you’ll get a replacement to the classic 38911 BASIC BYTES FREE thanks to some window.performance.memory extensions that are custom to it.
