May 28, 2021 - a musclebob mystery

small update, but one I can use your help with!

i've received a tape in the mail today with a very small tidbit of SpongeBob on it dating to April 28, 2002. unfortunately, it aired during the Nick GaS block which has little-to-no public documentation of what aired and when during these blocks. i've set up a mystery page for these two airings with some additional info, as well as a page over on Nickstory.

if you have any further info that could help pin down what time these aired (or if i'm wrong about the April 28 date completely), please shoot me an e-mail or message me on Discord @ fen#3935. thanks!

May 24, 2021 - man vs. microsoft

a quick update on the site


that's all for now

May 18, 2021 - more new capsules!

as i mentioned in the post from May 15, i'd be logging a really neat episode capsule into the site as soon as the tape it's on came in. well, it came! check out the capsule for the premiere of the Hey Arnold! episode "Heat / Snow" over on the tv section.

in other news, i have created a basic post archive so that i can move older updates off of the front page and still make them accessable for any freaks who want to read 'em. i've also added a handful of new capsules for recordings from shows such as South Park, Fairly OddParents and ReBoot to name a few, marking off pages for 1998, 1999 and 2003 from my to-do list.

my capture setup is still bugged as hell from the forced windows 10 update that was splattered across my computer. as soon as i iron out all of the driver issues and capture malfunctions i'm having i'll be back in business, but damn do i hate those mandatory updates.

May 16, 2021 - new domain

the domain should be working now, i spent all night tinkering with it and tearing my hair out so hopefully it's a-okay. the site has also been upgraded so i won't really have to worry about storage space for the forseeable future.

i've also added some new capsules for my recordings of shows like Star Trek: Voyager, Tom & Jerry, and You Can't Do That on Television.

May 15, 2021 - another early morning

woke up around 3 a.m. and decided to get some more work done on the site. got some capsules done for both Frasier and SpongeBob episodes respectively.

i'm not exactly sure how quickly i'm going to fill up my storage capacity on this site, seeing as Neocities is giving me 1 GB at the moment and 50 GB once i upgrade (which i will soon.) my general screenshots folder on my PC is comprised of 13,227 images and it's only 8.54 GB, so that gives me hope that i'll probably never reach the limit. i also read about Neocities allowing me to mount my site onto my PC as a separate drive, so maybe that would use my hard drive space rather than theirs? i don't know, i'll have to look into it more when i upgrade the site (which will probably be in the next week or two)

it's about 6 a.m. by the time i'm posting this so i'll probably go out and get a coffee and work on a few more capsules before heading to work. i have a very exciting, very expensive tape on the way which i'll be logging into the website ASAP. it won't disappoint :) stay tuned

May 14, 2021 - an introduction

so, the site isn't 100% ready yet but i figured i may as well write some sort of introductory entry.

it's currently 4:09 in the morning here and i've been up all night fighting with the laws of CSS and countless other issues do's and dont's regarding the infrastructure of the site. i took one web design class in high school centered around learning a version of Macromedia Dreamweaver that was released in 1998. needless to say, it didn't teach me what i needed to know. when it comes to HTML and CSS and god knows what else, i'm practically retarded.

regardless of my web design talents (or lack thereof) i hope to use this website as a bit of a testing ground / garbage pail for any projects i create in my spare time. i feel as though every project i start, i toss in the trash after 2 hours and it never sees the light of day. hopefully with this site some of those aborted little fetus-projects will find a home here. :)

as i said earlier, it's late/early as hell and i'm frantically trying to learn how to make various CSS styles work and how to do this and that and this and that. the site will be pretty rough around the edges for a while but i figure i'll learn more basic, elementary school-level coding as time goes on. i've already created a few capsules over on the tv page for recordings from 1992, 1995, 2010 and 2016. my goal is to get at least one capsule done for every year before the end of the week. i'm not sure when i'll start utilizing the other sections of the site, for now i'll just be focusing on my unhealthy obsession with videotapes and old television recordings.

the sun will be up soon and i'd like to go out to Royal Farms and get a coffee so i'll wrap things up here. if you're a stranger from Neocities visiting this site, hello! this site will hopefully look less barren and scary in the coming weeks as i fling more garbage onto it. thanks for reading! i'll leave you with what i'm listening to at the moment
