Hai, I'm Primm.
Bios are hard so I'll keep this short. I'm a nerdy girl who likes doing computery things and listening to music!
I hope you find my page interesting!!
My TMBG Related Projects
JH Hypercard HTML - The homepage for one of my websites that is heavily styled on the John Henry HyperCard stack. A modern recreation already exists, but I thought it would be nice to try to attempt it myself anyway. It also led me to working on John Henry Snippets, which was also great!
QCAM Recreation - This is a recreation of the QCAM service from tmbg.com. I spruced up the page so it works on a modern browser and it now has media controls and the option for the user to select which video they'd like to view.
Clock Radio Revival - I found the flash file for the Clock Radio and decided to take a look at what server it pointed to and what data the program was expecting. Despite having absolutely no flash knowledge, I thought it would then be easy enough to make my own server files and point the application towards it. In the end, I've managed to get it running in browser and web pretty much perfectly, with all the songs that can play being freely available elsewhere. I think the program is especially nice for those who (like myself) never experienced the Clock Radio the first time around!
TMBG App Log - Until 2021, the They Might Be Giants (App) page held a log of all the previous songs that had been played on the app with its respective date. I'm a huge fan of the app and still listen to it regularly, and occasionally remember days by which songs were playing on the app. I ended up missing this list enough to decide to host a similar log on my website as just a simple text file which is updated daily. If there are gaps in the data, I apologise - breakdowns sometimes happen!
John Henry Snippets - The aforementioned John Henry Hypercard had the songs sequenced using a text file, which I decided to rewrite into a MIDI format. This website allows you to listen to MP3s of the whole album created from the MIDI files and using instruments that I found fitting, as well as download the MIDI files of all the tracks that don't contain vocal samples.
