fLaMEds Homepage

Your first stop off of the Information Super Highway!

Kia ora ๐Ÿ‘‹, I'm fLaMEd ๐Ÿ”ฅ 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.

Selected writing

  • 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.

Site updates

  • 28 December, 2022: While working on the new design for FlamedFury.com, I noticed that the Oku API calls had changed again. I've fixed them up, and the Bookshelf is displaying the correct books under each subheading again.

  • 06 December, 2022:I am still determining where the webrings on the sidebar disappeared or how long they were missing. They're back now. I'm grateful none of the ring owners removed me.

    I'll be back with a content update soon.

  • 15 September, 2022: 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 Gameshelf edit 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.

All site updates.

If you've enjoyed your time here, please leave a message in my guestbook, or send me an e-mail.

I wonโ€™t be able to respond to guestbook entries, I will respond to all e-mails.
