divergent rays

You may be asking yourself, "What are "divergent rays" and why would someone call their website that?" Or - maybe you're not. But, either way, you're going to get an explanation! This is a term I learned in x-ray school. As the x-ray beam exits the tube, the beam will diverge.

I'm interested in so many things that I thought the divergent beam was an apt metaphor for me and my varied interests.

Way back in the 1990s, I used to have a webpage (this capture from the Way Back Machine is a little bit broken but you can get the sense of what it was). I was very proud of it - I hand coded it in Notepad (much like I'm currently doing with this one right now). I finally gave it up. Why? Well, life happened, and then it seemed like personal webpages, like the kind you would find on Geocities and Angelfire, were a thing of the past and people weren't making them anymore.

I am delighted to find out I was wrong. Making and creating your own little space on the web hasn't died away and there seem to be a lot of people out there who are still interested in this! I want to be part of it again so here I am relearning HTML and learning about CSS for the first time.
