How ED Came To Be
The story begins when I met and became friends with Gina, who owned Dustrixity.net. She always had amazing design sense and was really friendly. ^^ She first hosted my mp3 rotation Virgin Ears and then later hosted my Xianghua tribute Sweet Harmony. When i wanted to learn PHP in order to run fanlistings I approached her to ask if i could get another site hosted. Or even just using a small spot on her domain to practice using phpfanbase.
Much to my surprise she not only told me yes but that she was buying me my own domain! I thanked her a lot and in late May 2006, Ephemeral-Dream.com was bought and presented to me. In May 2009 ED was re-dubbed "The Robot Honey Network" and in i'm amazed this girl of mine is 9 years now.
Before Gina could present my domain to me i first needed to give her a name so she could register it. I admit I was a bit dumbfounded since I had so many interests. I just couldn't decide! Plus I wanted to get my domain up soon so I could get my fanlistings done in time! So i turned to my music player. lol. What would later become a bit of a tradition in naming my sites, i hit the random button till a song title popped up that liked or thought fit.
The song that stuck was Ephemeral Dream. It is Setsuka's stage music from Soul Calibur III and while its not something I would choose on my own, it resonated with me. I wanted something to reflect my interests, yet not too involved in a subject matter in case i ended up on not enjoying the fandom later. Which I'm somewhat grateful because I'm not too fond of the SC series these days.
Ephemeral means "lasting for only a short period" or "lasting or living for only one day" and with dream it means something along the lines of "short lived dream" or "momentary dream". I think its slightly appropriate to me as a person because I am a creative and imaginative person. I daydream a lot as well. Also i have a lot of ideas that tend to not always make it to fruition. ^^;. Also I'm a Pisces (March 20th), which are known to be dreamers.
Robot Honey, which i re-dubbed the network as in 2009 comes from an Aira Mitsuki song of the same name. Again, i used my music player on shuffle. lol. I also liked that it was neat sounding but general enough in case i ended up on not liking the subject matter it came from. I find it to be kinda catchy. I love technology and i like to think I'm a sweet or friendly person...like Honey. Although i guess I'm not sickeningly sweet like honey can be. Err...i did mention before that i don't always make sense and/or is awkward? lol.
