FloppyFox's World Wide Web Site

Hiiii pals!! Welcome to my small home page on the World Wide Web!

What is FloppyFox?

I'm just a stinky old fox that's living in the past. I don't get kids these days, they're weirdos. I do like the noses, and all things about noses. The ears are very nice too. I am past middle aged, very grey now. Even the nose is turning Atari ST grey. Pleased to meet you!

Electronics Projects

A fox oozes and secretes various things. I hope you find these things beautiful!

A fox oozed and secreted some music over the past 30 years. It is formed in the mouldy fox studio with a 16 track tape recorder and a lot of blood. It is not formed with AI at present. But one has had a good run and understands it will be time to give way to AI soon.

My views are my own! Amazing I have to say that these days. Outside sources are not my responsibility.

Unplug the computer. Carry it into the kitchen. PUT IT IN THE FUCKING BIN.
Children should not be on the internet. Heck, most adults shouldn't be either.
