“Zap it here”

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…
