Bytemoth's Gob-Crashin' Swoop'n'Swap Spot (12023-09-14)

Bytemoth's Brook

(Welcome to my homepage / Enjoy your visit / and come back soon!)

^ ^ ^ Super Advanced CSS-Only Navigation Buttons ^ ^ ^

I am Digital Warlock Bytemoth, and this is my corner of the web! In contrast to CD5K, which is where I go full fiction, this extremely creamy stream is a constantly-refreshed catalog of my experiences and things I find useful. Dip your face in and feel refreshed.

The Brook can be thought of as something of a sequel to my earlier attempts at making homepages - the Highly Saucy Directory in 12014 and Perfectly Cooked Pages from 12016. Third time's the charm?

Stroll through the Webgarden for the latest updates.
(All dates on this page appear recent due to a sitewide layout change.)

The 32x32 icons appearing on this site were sourced from afactor's Iconolog 1.0 and Windows 98, then converted to PNG with BeCy Icon Grabber. Most other images were found on various archived Geocities sites and optimized.

While this site isn't explicitly smartphone compatible, due to being designed for sub-HD resolutions, it should look fine in landscape orientation. Though I would suggest instead, at bare minimum, using a tablet and mouse.
