Hi, I'm frumbert.

I am currently a web content developer, php and javascript programmer, and soggy gardener (there were 7 days in the first half of this year where it didn't rain).

This site is an archive of things I've done in the past. I have other sites where I'm showing off my Moodle Plugins which is a bit more current, and I also run some product sites like Course Assembler and Convert to Scorm.


Online presence

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, so it's pretty much entrenched in the internet by now.

Wayback

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).

Music

I used to write a lot of computer music. Some of it is good, a lot of it is average to bad. Some of it is still on my BBC Micro, which is currently waiting for me to resolder its long-dry joints, if the 5.25" floppies don't rust first; some of them I never converted from various Tracker formats to anything remotely modern; some of it is on Atari ST floppies in Notator format - and it's highly unlikely I'll find a working one of those ever again. Here's links to all I currently have left on file.

2015 update: I found another track! it's a 42 minute recording called "stupidly large wave file.m4a". It's weird. I must have been drunk at the time it was made.

Creative writing

I used do a lot of creative writing. Much of this was done more than 30 years ago. Like the music, some of it is good, some bad. Linked to everything I could find - apologies for the web-unfriendly formats.

Poetry

The teenage writer thing - late 80's, early 90's. Some of these won poetry competitions and such. Most of them are silly. Some I still like. Feel free to look away awkwardly.

Game ideas

They were notes and ideas when I was entertaining the idea of joining a MMORPG programming group (back in my TrueVision3D days). The principal game idea was that the game would be based on crafting and exploration of world and story, rather than monster battles. Never got off the ground significantly, but I still think the idea is workable, for a different gamer market than you normally associate with massively multiplayer games.

Travel diary

These may be handy if you are a travelling to Italy by your self and haven't planned your trip by the time you get there (such as the first day when you have just stepped onto the tarmac and are wondering where the terminal building is, and don't speak the local lingo...)

Assignments

I studied horticulture. Here are my assignments (a-la cheat notes for gardeners).

Random files

I've carried these files in my documents folder for years. Often surprised at the things I jot down. These days I have text clippings which I can't just link to because they are the oddball fork thing that OSX does to such files - they aren't as easy to read. I don't pretend to remember what is in half of these files - your mileage may vary.

These are direct links to the files - your browser might try to handle them in odd ways. Right click, save as.
