And here’s hoping you haven’t been following me this whole time. I thought about doing a nice retrospective like Jason, but I don’t save much of anything for nearly ten years, let alone digital files that anyone can still open. For a nostalgic trip, we’ll have to visit the Wayback Machine.
This, and all the linkblogging I was doing before I owned the domain of Magnetbox was done by hand, because that was the way we liked it. Now get off of my lawn.
But do you know what’s even more awesome? By doing this half-assed retrospective, I found through Wayback links which actually worked (which are rare this far back) something I thought I had lost forever:
Yes, this my friends, is my online journal which I stopped in the year 2000 after getting tired of doing it for three years. Ugh, I’m a fucking nerd. If you click the screenshot into the Wayback Machine and go aaaall the way down to the bottom you will see my first entry, from March 21, 1997:
“Work. Watched TV.”
Get out your Twitter patents kids, because I was doing pointless small updates no one cared about 11 years ago! By hand, in HTML table rows! Yow. Anyways, let’s move on.
This was my old-timey western theme. It was meant to be mirrored by a futuristic design that you could switch to, but that never got made.
This was a rather stark departure, but every few years a get a burning itch to redesign my site, and this was done in the matter of a few hours.
This is what you’re currently looking at, which is a complete theme which I made to coincide with moving over to WordPress from Blogger. This design has received some pretty amazing response, but if you can’t tell by my track record, I will soon tire of it, and I promised to give it away when I’m done with it.
This may be sooner than later, because now that I’ve got a mini-blog over on Tumblr (The Triumph of Bullshit) and a micro-blog (again!) over at Twitter, I’ve been mulling about how to redesign and recombine everything into one big happy family. Stay tuned.
Anyways, thanks for visiting.
