Pamie Dot Com Joins the FuturePresent

Hello! It’s the fancy, shiny, new face for! Special thanks to Glark for his patience.

Example of patience:

Why do you have sixteen font tags in a row before the word “Taylor”?

I don’t know.

It’s a post from 1999.

Oh! Because I was using Netscape Explorer to write code back then.

It is crazytown. And why so many pages for one entry?

That’s how you made revenue back in the ChickClick days.

Why are there so many blockquotes?!

I stopped learning code in the fall of 2000 and I never looked back.

I’m gonna go for a walk.

Also thanks to Chris Huff and Sara Morrison for their continued suffering.

So I worked up an old entry about when you hear Pearl Jam’s version of Last Kiss for the first time and then heard it on the radio less than a day later. Am I slowly being transported back to 1999 one song at a time? Could this be the plot of a book that Oprah would pick for book club?

I just got to the part where you puked your guts out in an alley. Also, you wrote an entry about tampons. WHYYY?


Can I put the “Dork” tag on every entry?

I did.

We’re still doing a little renovating through the older years, but I hope you like the new digs. I’ll try not to go six years without a renovation next time. At this point, I’m pretty sure Glark won’t let me.

    Look, we can comment! Could we comment before? I remember wanting to blather on about Guatemala when you were going and not being able to. Perhaps you were saved from that. Anyway, site looks good!

    Nice design. The new look seems to have broken the RSS feed though (this post isn’t appearing on the old feed).

    I don’t see a link to the feed anywhere on the site, so here it is if people want to subscribe:

    Comments! Yaaaay! And also: sad for you, because now you will have to (most likely not) read all the asinine things I think about your posts but was always too lazy to email!

    Holy Crap! I have no idea how I missed the redesign. Where have I been the last month? I have some catching up to do.

    I really like the new design and I love that we can comment again. We used to be able to comment, right? Back in the day?

      So far back in the day it was like, 2005? I think that’s when I cut the comments. After Stac(e)ygate.
