February 18 2016 22:53 - Blast from the past
Influenza is a bitch! Just sayin' but I seem to be getting over it, it has been more annoying than anything. Anyway, I don't really have any news, nothing major anyway, but a big one about the move is coming within the next couple of weeks. I have also acquired a sampler, the Akai S2000 with no expansions which seems like it should be useful, seems pretty straight forward and I seem to get along with it just fine.
Outside of that, I have been rummaging in some of my archives and found a lot of stuff. Some videos, a few predating YouTube's existence, snippets of horrible projects I did years ago, some dial-up era pornography (it isn't very good) and snapshots of my old website. Here you go, hosted previously on this domain - so far as I remember. If you had come here in early 2005 this is what you would have found;
It was in the process of being updated when the backup I have was taken,
interestingly one of the updated assets was the image on the right
(Originally, the site had very few images at an even lower resolution) and
it shows the Pentium D's case when it had (I believe) the Athlon 64
installed in it. Next to it is a Pentium II which was about to head off to
storage. I started this site on AOL Hometown, but the primitive ASP code
suggests I had moved to DXZeff.com (Sound familiar?) and my own box by then.
Sadly, with no internet and no access to my server, plus nobody to pay the
bill, the update wasn't completed and the domain was closed... Not before
some idiot turned off the server, which was in my house... but I had no
access to my house being stuck in the kid's home at the time. Updates were
made later but the site was not put back online.
For the sake of it, here are some more random images from that time, including the original source for the sidebar image in the screenshot.
It is entirely possible I will post more later, including the video which the last image was taken from - it isn't very good though.
As a last note, I am now limiting the main page to only five posts to help the loading time. All older posts are still available in the list on the left hand side.
