What happened? 2: Elevator Boogaloo (8/13/2018)
finally decided to do updates to this fucking site
Being real for a sec, i did update a bunch of stuff. Like, move the old links to a archive section and update this blog. I still don't know what to do with this site tho. I will try to think of something to make for you guys tho!
Conglom-O returned and you can click here to visit it.
I also made a new site for retro gaming called IceQuake which has guides and downloads for old games.
That's about it. Stay tuned for more updates!
What happened? (7/9/2018)
Nothing happened. I've been updating my site for a while with new archived sites and whatnot. I just haven't bothered to make a blog post for a while.
However, Conglom-O died a week ago because i cancelled the host (read why by clicking here) but i do plan making a successor for it. I also decided to delete my previous blog post because it was just badly written.
I've also started to make some Panda3D stuff. You can check out my first script here.
I think that's about it. Maybe i'll end this blog soon idk.
1st anniversary!!! (5/31/2018)
May 31st, 2017. I register for Neocities to start my adventure with HTML to create the site i always wanted to do. I started out as a HTML noob with a site with practically almost no content. One year later, i'm sitting at over 22,000 views with a decent site. How did that happen? Here's my story about sites:
Back in 2016, i used Weebly to create a blog called Mingler Daily which was about my own imaginary events happening in Toontown. The site is still up, so if you want to check it out, click here. Here's a preview of the site:
Yeah, it looks kinda bad actually. But whatever, i was fine with it 2 years ago.
Even in early 2017, i still used Weebly for my website needs. I made a Club Penguin Rewritten fansite back when the game was fresh and came out just recently. For some reason, i chose a really long name for it. The link is clubpenguinrewrittennewspapers.weebly.com. Yeah, quite a long name. The CSS broke some months ago for whatever reason.
The last website i made with Weebly was a spin-off of the previous site for Vintage Penguin, which is currently shutting down. I chose a shorter name, which was vintagepenguintimes.weebly.com. The last post i ever made on any Weebly site was June 6th, 2017. By that point my Neocities account has existed for about a week. At first, i copied the source of fospcgc.neocities.org to give me a good starting point for my website. Below is a screenshot of my dashboard from May 31st, 2017. Sadly, the site from back then is lost in time as i didn't work on my site locally, nor did i do any backups at the time.
Yeah you can see that it looked bad back then, lol. Later (somewhere in June/July or August), i went for the horrible 90s Geocities style. People praised my site for looking like a Geocities site, but now whenever i think of those comments, i just laugh.
And the rest is history. Thank you to everyone who followed me on my adventure in HTML, from the people that were with me from the beginning to the brand new people who recently discovered my site. Thank you all. I really appreciate all the comments, all the feedback and all the suggestions.
As a bonus, i've been working on a brand new theme for my site recently and it is now released! Not everything is there, but i will add to the theme as time goes on.
Thank you for reading this huge blog post and supporting me. Here's to another anniversary of goodness!
Nocities is gone + a new alternative (5/28/2018)
I made the decision to kill off Nocities because a new and better alternative popped up! It's called Penelope's Place and is run by Mariteaux. Link is on the main page.
Abandonware + anniversary soon! (5/27/2018)
So i started downloading a shitton of abandonware recently because i'm a archivist and also because i want some software for the Windows XP laptop i'm gonna get soon for retro gaming.
I really love abandonware because it's... old! I like old computer software really much, like games and music players and whatnot.
Kind of a weak post, i know but i'll probably rewrite it soon. Also, stay tuned for my anniversary which takes place in 4 days! Oh, and i added a new readme to my HTML manual archive. Check it out.
New Custom USB Icon tutorial! (5/26/2018)
So i made my first tutorial for this site. It's about applying a custom icon for your USB flash drive.Here's the tutorial.
Have fun reading!
20,000 views! + Links page restored (5/22/2018)
Been a while since i posted, huh? Anyways, my site reached 20,000 views recently! Thank you to everyone who visited my site, even those who hate it and viewed it to laugh at. It's such a incredible goal for me!
In other news, i went to Blue Background and White Text HTML simulator once again, brought back the links page and added some stuff. Yay.
Stay tuned for the 1st anniversary of my Neocities account as well!
Flash Page + New Neocities Discord (5/14/2018)
So uhh, i restored the Flash page from Blue Background and White Text HTML simulator and made it better. New content soon.
Also, i created a new Neocities discord for y'all! The link is on top of the index.
You may be asking yourself: "BU-BUT WHY YOU MAKING A NEW ONE WHEN THERE EXISTS ONE ALREDY ASHDKJADHSJHLHKFHEFEHEKLFWEKFDLHDS". Well, i made it because rocketmix is fucking incomptent as hell, refuses to do a simple task that will improve the server (remove Dyno which i have personal history with) and also just simply ignores it/does other things that ""help"" instead of simply removing the mod. Tell me, rocketmix, how hard for you is it to hover your mouse over Dyno, right click and press Kick? Your arms went dead or something and used your nose to type?
I think i need to stop there before i make this post 543 paragraphs. Just join the new server pls.
New redesign. (5/13/2018)
This site looks much better now. If you wish to view the old site, the link is on the main page.
vv OLD POSTS vv
New flash goodies page! (5/2/2018)
A simple page with Adobe Flash goodness. I love Adobe Flash content so i made this page.
New unique embeds! (5/1/2018)
A easy thing to add but it's still neat. Previously, all embeds looked exactly the same for all pages. Now, all pages have a unique embed! Example:
More pages will come soon too, so stay tuned for that!
8 pages already! (4/29/2018)
Oh man, 8 pages. Never in my time as a HTML coder guy i've made so many, let alone in that short span of time. It's mostly because the pages are basic and stuff, but still i find it a pretty cool milestone. I'll make a thing for my 10th page. :P
Looking back at my HTML trash. (4/28/2018)
Yesterday in the Neocities Discord, me, Mariteaux and elementz were talking about Neocities and how it has a lot of Web 1.0 garbage from kiddies with Gifcities and W3Schools. I mentioned my old site from July 2017 and another site i made with ""A E S T H E T I C S"" called Chillwave. As you might have guessed, both look absolutely obnoxious and terrible. What's wrong with Chillwave you may ask? Well, for starters, it's filled with shitty gifs, it has autoplay, the backgrounds look shit and it has forced A E S T H E T I C S. I hate this site so much i added a little embed thing for it.
What about my old site from July 2017? It's just another "GEOCITIES 90S RAD NOSTALGIA GUESTBOOK AND GIFS EVERYWHERE" site. There's not really much to it.
Oh well, i'll be going now. And for those who do this shit:
Added a A-Frame world. (4/27/2018)
A simple thing i did. It's mostly based off of joppiesaus' world.
Welcome to the blog! Sit down and make this place your new home. This blog is using HTML made by Neocities Discord user Mariteaux#1020. Thanks for the code, man.
