This website is my current home on the internet and I’m here to stay. I’ve had an online presence of one form or another as early as the mid-1990s. Born in the 80s, living for the 90s!
Ahhh the 1990s, what a time to be alive!
– Mirabilis ICQ for chatting. Uh-oh!
– Winamp 2.x blasting out MP3s at 128kbps.
– Genecyst / Kgen for my Mega Drive fix.
– GetRight for resuming downloads on 28.8kbps.
– WS_FTP LE was the uploader of choice.
– Coding with HotDog Professional by Sausage Software.
This website is the successor to…
