This is the latest site to serve as my primary website, containing a portfolio of my web sites, along with various other things. These sites are's ancestors.

First came elektrobank, created around the Fall of 1997. Looking back now, it's fairly amateurish, but I was proud of it at the time. When I created it, I was unaware that web sites could be made to look attractive, so it is very utilitarian. elektrobank
When I started discovering well-designed sites, I realized that elektrobank was incredibly plain and dull, and made a new site to replace it that was a bit more interesting. It resulted in asteric, and I also decided to throw in scans of some drawings I made a few years ago. I designed three major versions of asteric, as well as a flash version, which served as my main site from May 1998 to April 1999. asteric 1 asteric 1.1 asteric 2 asteric 3 asteric f1
As I designed more versions of asteric, I wanted the old versions to be accessible. Also, I was running my computer at school as a web server, and wanted to be able to tie all of these together. The result was my little empire, a single page with links to all the versions of asteric and cybertron, my school server. Since it was only one page, I could easily make different versions of the page, which I did about once a month, until I decided to combine everything into optigone. my little empire 1 my little empire 2 my little empire 3
This served as my primary site from March 1999 to June 1999, when was born. This was created to be strictly a portfolio site, basically an asteric without the robots section. The robots, along with the color blue, were integral to asteric's identity, so I created a new site where I dropped the robots section, and was able to use more colors. optigone 1
