VOLE.wtf - malevole reborn
Way back in 2002 I launched malevole.com, a site for my daftest creative projects, and tried reaching all the cool bloggers with a $10 MeFi text ad featuring an ASCII vole <",_,)~ This seemingly worked, and the site had a few viral hits, but by the end of 2004 I was too caught up in my day job and let it rot. Nearly 15 years later, I've brought it back with a completely new look, some revamped old stuff, and lots more lined up.

I’ve no idea if quirky standalone sites can still find an audience, but I’m giving it a go and it’ll be good to work through my ideas list and collaborate with talented people.

I love this! The world needs more quirky personal webpages.

Also, I'm terrible at distinguishing between serial killers and programming language designers.

I'm really good at spotting serial killers. It's in the eyes.

I remember malevole.com! It had a black background and a red-eyed vole in the upper left corner. You did some fancy schmancy thing (I want to say it was dhtml... :) back then too, with little bits of paper with blogging on them that had Xs in the upper right corner. I was jealous of your skills, which is why I remember it so well.
