Your first stop off of the Information Super Highway!
Kia ora 👋, I'm fLaMEd 🔥 and this is my homepage, a collection of stuff that I like.
I have had a passion for making homepages for a long time. There's always been a time in my life where I have had a homepage in one form or another.
This homepage is being constructed in public, it is constantly under construction. I will often push changes to it to try things out. I spend too much time coding and configuring and need to focus on writing the never ending stream of ideas and concepts down.
My Web Manifesto: I love the Internet, but not all things about the Internet. On this page, I dive deep into the current state of the Internet and explore whether it is heading in an ideal direction.
Early Web Memories: This page details my earliest memories of getting online and surfing the web; I remember all the fun times and the not-so-fun times.
Gaming PC History: I love computer games, and I love building computers. On this page, I take a trip down memory lane and try to remember all the computers I have assembled over the years.
I backtracked my last updated and moved my Gaming PC History to its own page, Gaming PC History. Like most of my best ideas, this happened while deep in thought while walking the dogs.
This has also given me thought to how I would like to re-organise my growing collection of pages into their own writing section. This would mean an update to my navigation.
Anyway, there's always something to work on, don't forget to sign my guestbook.
12 September, 2022:
I've made an update to the Gameshelfedit I've created a new page that details my Gaming PC History. I've sat down and taken a trip down memory lane, recollecting all the PCs I've built over the years.
Writing this page took longer than I thought, but it has been a fun exercise.
I wish I had records of our PCs between 1996 and 2005. I think we had 1-2 family PCs before I made enough money from website ads around 2000, and I could afford to buy PCs for myself.
Anyway, the page is long now. I will look at dividing the sections into individual pages later this week.
Give the page a read and let me know what the first PC you remember building was in my guestbook.
05 September, 2022: Yesterday was father's day down this side of the world. I spent the day with the family doing various activities. I was excited to receive a new pair of Air Force 1 shoes, the first pair of shoes I've got since the pre-COVID days.
The day's highlight was in the afternoon. I got to sit in the lounge to enjoy a couple of big beers and listen to two records end-to-end. I don't get to do that often. While having a rare streak of time to do stuff, I also managed to sit down and fix the guestbook so that it matches the updates to the homepage styles I've made over the months.
If you have a moment spare, head over and sign it and let me know what you think.
24 August, 2022: I'm still here, just occupied with everything except my homepage. I have made some changes to the writing on the Comic Book, Recordshelf, and Bookshelf pages.
I am looking forward to doing something substantial soon. I noticed that the menu icon for the mobile layout looks funny; if you know how I can fix it, send me an e-mail.
19 July, 2022: It's been easy to not run out of stuff away from the computer lately.
I've updated the Vinyl Collection page to add new new records that arrived today, both Czarface. Czarface debut album from 2013 and Czarface, MF Doom – Super What? which released 2021. Looks like I'm up to 30 in the collection now, wow!
I still have a to-do list item to take a photo of each record and stop hotlinking discogs, lol.
All site updates.
I won’t be able to respond to guestbook entries, I will respond to all e-mails.
