Brian Huisman AKA GreyWyvern is a professional Web developer with programming experience going back to 1996. His first Web site appeared in 1997, was on Geocities, and looked horrible. It was made for him by an online friend he had and Grey took it downhill from there: A repeating picture background on every page; red text on blue backgrounds; littered with animated gif's.
Still in his Internet infancy, he mainly used it to post some of his writing and QBasic programming exploits. Anyway, starting with a solid three years playing with QBasic, Grey dabbled in Java for a few months before moving entirely to HTML.
