It’s the Year We Make Contact. And fluffernutters. And our own home! The jingle:
Happy Birthday Sigg3.net!
Here’s a quick re-cap of other themes:
- September 30th 2002: Sigg3’s Keep
- 25th of January 2003: firstname.lastname@example.org
- 12th of June 2003: email@example.com tropical
- 20th of September 2003: Life Between Stations
I had a lot of spare time in 2003 apparently. Hehe, please notice how that if you click a link to Koew.tk in the archive, my design pops up: Koew.tk @ 2004. I had forgot I made that. Ah, the days of 800×600 over modem.. websites <20Kb, reminisce!
Why make a new theme when I could just return to the UNCHALLENGED AWESOMENESS of the Tropical theme I used in 2003? Because it contains graphics from two major trademarks (and in violation thereof); namely the Tropical masthead that I snatched from a flash vid of homestarrunner and the Guinness beverage educational icons at the bottom which alone make me regret I went to work today..
But I might consider going with something just as colourful.
There are many contenders to the title of ‘Sigg3.net new backend’, ranging from the academically appraised Plone to funky Django and enterprise Drupal. I’ve recently meddled with MongoDB and other non-relational databases, but they are not really needed for my kind of site. Though I have a good PageRank and receive new readers from all across the world every day, I don’t really need to scale for great masses. This site is my personal webpage, and nothing else. Happy birthday!
PS. Also, you should buy Pauly‘s book right away: Lost Vegas!
I know I would. And guess what, I have bought it! And so should you. Stop licking the fence and get down n’ dirty with the poker priest of NYC.
