the time machine

The Time Machine is a trip throughout iterations in the development of Navigate between each version with the arrows and scroll over the pictures to read more.

version 1.3

30 May 2022

The first version of still in my hard drive. There are earlier versions, but they have been lost to time. Time sure is a destructive force, isn’t it?

Very simple design, iframe based, classic colour scheme, barely any content at all because I was focusing far too much on the layout to pay attention to what actually lays inside it. Humble beginnings. Cute.

Look at an archived version!

version 2.0

18 June 2022

1.0 with blackjack and hookers, pretty much. I remade the whole thing from scratch and this is what I ended up with?

At least it isn’t beige anymore. Fuck beige.


3 August 2022

Unfinished experiment, still using iframes, kinda wonky, kinda ugly, but it was the basis for the next layout, which turned out pretty well.


25 August 2022

An improvement on the previous experiment. Despite this layout being beneath my skill level now, I still have a soft spot for it—it captures a sort of retro cool with that colour palette, iframe and clunky side-navbar. It may be revamped in the future (preferably so not every single element is an Illustrator vector exported to png), but for now it is a fond memory.


9 October 2022

Unfinished (thankfully) experimental layout, and the first (or at least, earliest saved one) one using Jekyll. I tried making this one easy to customize later on by abusing Less mixins (and you’ll see that coming into play in the next iteration).

“Blue Abomination” is what I’d call it in retrospect.

I’m quite glad I dropped this one, it looks quite tacky. The glitched text effect on the banner looks good, but it’s too colourful and it just doesn’t mesh well with the rest of the website. Rest in piss.

version 3.0

16 January 2023

This one has been well-preserved in the Wayback Machine. It’s an improvement upon the October layout, with the stylesheet finished, a wider colour palette and a… better? Banner. Actually, I’m not so sure about that—it went from an tacky eyesore to just plain boring. I think the problem is just the banner having to be contained in such a blocky way, restricting what I can do.

I used to believe the unfinished 06/08/2022 layout was actually published as 3.0, so this entry was originally for that. I’ve since rectified my mistake. That’s crazy: I’ve gone through so many versions and revisions I forgot one of them existed!

version 4.1

5 June 2023

melankorin v4: Grief

I consider 4.0 the first good version of

This layout is named Grief, called this way due to personal happenings in my life and it’s monochrome colour palette. Abandoned iframes in favour of Jekyll building the pages for me, banner, horizontal navigation, sidebar that varies based on the page, 1px black bordered sections, nearly everything in black and white. Retro, but also modern.

It took tens of thousands of lines of code to get me to a point where I liked my own work, but it was worth it.
