A customary welcome

You've stumbled upon the Thranpages; home of idiosyncratic variety and curiosity.

The personal website may be dead to most, but I'm on a singular mission to bring it back.

A customary caution

ACTIVE: Writ. Thransoft. WMW.

All that is new:

  • Bitter Coin >> Sun 17 October 2021

    My many misses at getting a piece of the blockchain.

  • Opening the Armoury >> Wed 06 October 2021
