Gopher: about

 *  About
 *  
 *  What is ec.je, it's a good question and much like the Answer to the Ultimate Question of
 *  Life, the Universe, and Everything, it's 42.
 *  
 *  But really, it's an old days site that I had when I wanted a .com, I found EvilCheese.com
 *  (which is now being squatted on, good luck selling that bro dude, I got zero visitors
 *  then).
 *  
 *  When I was looking for my first two letter domain, I did a number of searches, and one
 *  of them being ec. Having forgot that .ec is the soverign state of Ecuador, there weren't
 *  many options. But her majesty's island of Jersey had a homie's back, and with that ec.je
 *  came to life. Bringing back the joy of evilcheese.com without so many typing letters.
 *  
 *  The idea was to have a short domain to use when I want to put things online, because I
 *  do have an awful habit of registering far too many domains. I, in fairness, did start to do
 *  this as for a while the web address for the BBS was mmn.ec.je. I will probably move it
 *  over from mmn.cx at some point, when who knows, but probably may be.
 *  
 *  But because 2018 so crazy and I'm thinking of 2019 already, I'm going to start getting
 *  my shit together with ec.je and getting it all under this domain now.
 *  
 *  It's no secret that this site was run on WordPress, but now it's all on the gopher
 *  protocol with a front end. My blog is now over at lj.gl, but got to give a big holla
 *  out to DreamHost, which is technically the longest relationship I've been in to date.
 *  
 *  Blogging wise I have been at this for a while now, I started my LiveJournal back in
 *  2000, it's been with me in the thick and thin since then. But everything kind of changed
 *  when LiveJournal was brought over in to Russia. Since then I have been looking to get
 *  all my stuff from there and bring it over where I can keep it on my own terms. I've seen
 *  sites over the years drop off, with everything on there vanish in to the Internet Archive.
 *  And 18 years of posts, ramblings and quizzes is not something I'm willing to give up easily.
 *  
 *  Granted there were some issues with the API but by chance, I managed to recover everything but the comments.
 *  
 *  For prosperity, I present to you, my LiveJournal profile.
 *  
 *  *****
 *  There are things I'm forced to write about online and it transpires I am just one of those many things.
 *  
 *  As always I barely know where to start, so I guess I'll start at the beginning. I was
 *  born in Toronto and continued to go to school there (as one generally does). I started
 *  to build my own interest in computers through my poorly funded state provided
 *  education, where the school board could only afford Commodores and Apple ]['s. I
 *  spent a lot of time playing, working and pissing about with them.
 *  
 *  To the point where, when the school was going to bin them I got first grabs at having
 *  my own C64 (hey they offered!). I eventually managed to upgrade to a machine with
 *  Windows in 1994/1995 and an Apple Classic. During these days I started to find out
 *  about BBSes and that darn fangled internet.
 *  
 *  I downloaded my own board software and it started from there, MMN was born in 1996.
 *  
 *  Years passed on and I continued to work on this project ever since. During my life, I
 *  decided to move countries back in 2002 to Bristol (UK). I stayed there until 2013
 *  when I lived my dream and moved to Paris.
 *  
 *  I've been here ever since and I’m probably never going to leave. Because you know, Paris.
 *  
 *  I'm not only passionate about classic computing, but ironically enough
 *  learning/speaking French (I think I can thank my québécoise grade 6 teacher for
 *  that) and cycling. I enjoy techno/hardcore music and was pretty much the only
 *  person in school who was in to Dance before it became the mainstream pop shit we
 *  all know and want to burn.
 *  
 *  Since 2000 I've also been ranting continously blogging on LiveJournal. I currently
 *  operate MMN which is a BBS / Web Hosting / Domain eTailer. So check it out
 *  
 *  https://www.mmn.on.ca/
 *  *****
 *  
 *  And we can't forget my Interests as well, which I have not changed since at least 2003.
