The old town of the Internet.
Fabien Sanglard [jump here] [permalink]
A personal website and blog of a programmer. Fabien is French and Canadian, but not French-Canadian. He has written numerous articles delving into the depths of how computer game engines work and the process of game design.
Also, the website is very attractively presented (though it could do with a switch to text-align: left). It looks like an old hand-typed newsletter, similar to the style of my Thranpages.

Shlomi Fish [jump here] [permalink]
Homepage belonging to a Perl (and Open Source) enthusiast. He has also written short articles on many of his interests and views. The website is hand-built with a lot of passion; it clearly matches the eccentricity of its author.

Aaron Giles [jump here] [permalink]
Homepage of a veteran Microsoft and LucasArts programmer. He also wrote the first JPEG viewer for Macintosh, which earned him 5000 postcards.
Curiously, he also built MAME. That name is familiar to me. There was a shortcut on the desktop of our first computer: "MAME 1000 Games!", presumably installed as a courtesy by the small computer shop that sold us the computer. Clicking the shortcut made the screen flicker, a caret blinked in the top corner, then I was presented a menu screen listing many games. The names were unfamiliar to me. Quite a lot had the word [Bootleg] in them, which I found humorous. I was roughly eight years old and I mostly played 1942.
Little did I know this was DOS mode. Windows 98 had the impressive ability to leap from the 90s back to the 80s at the drop of a hat.

vsbabu on GNU/Linux [jump here] [permalink]
A website dtaing from the very early 2000s, going into great deatil with its author's love of Linux. He describes his favourite open source projects and shares some of his own tutorials (PHP3, Perl) from the time period.
The website features a clean design and is still perfectly navigable today.

Personal homepage of a programer. He has also wrote his own static site generator. A small flair of grey & black ASCII art on the homepage.
