Way back in 2008 I was learning CSS and using the W3C CSS Validator Service to check to see if my code worked. It was all that I knew at the time.
I received a message that I was using the service too much. After that it stopped working.
The W3C website was also down and I thought it had shut down.
For many years I wondered why people pointed to it in tutorials. I thought maybe it was moved to Github.
It turns out that W3C blocked my DNS. I finally figured it out about a year ago.
Now, ten years later, my DNS is still blocked by W3C.
Kind of sucks. Leaves an ugly feeling about the org.
I haven’t figured out how to correct that.
