Hi, I'm frumbert.

I'll just start off by saying that I don't like any Star Wars/Trek movie the best. Comic-based universe? You can keep those to yourself. PC, Playstation or Xbox: how about a paperback? Does that tell you who I am?

I'm a web coder living in Toormina, NSW, Australia, which is next door to Coffs Harbour and is much less noisy. At night time I hear crickets and frogs, not air-brakes and sirens. My boy calls Coffs Harbour 'Noisy Town'.

I started using email & telnet in 1989, the web in 1993-ish on the NCSA Mosiac web browser, irc in 1994, and coding HTML in 1995. In 1996 I got into Macromedia Director, then afterwards FutureSplash (later renamed Flash), then Javascript and Perl. From then on my programming career has led me through classic asp, dotnet / mvc, java, nodejs and php.

I currently write javascript web apps, do custom moodle programming, and some web design (and mod Minecraft), and batch scripts to do repetitive tasks; well, you should get it: mostly I code.

You could google frumbert and track down all the things I've missed below - I've been using this nic since the early 1990's (since they called them nic and not avatar), so it's pretty much entrenched in the internet by now.


You can nose about in my old sites using the Wayback Machine (more here, even more). If you're adventurous, you can check out my online site archive or its predecessor, which are both from the deep dark days of the web when you did your animations with hacky gif files or java applets. There's some jaw-dropping design in there (probably not the good sort).
