Flumen is the new hip old school. Flumen is at the same time a website and a return to all that was (or is, depending who you ask) charming or annoying about flow TV and video rental services:
- The images are shown in randomized order, one image per page view; that is, only one person can watch each image. Your experience is unique for that week!
- Flumen is social: If other persons on the same network visit the site you will frequently block each other. Find that other person and visit the site together!
- The server is extremely primitively implemented. E.g., it will look as if the server is down if another is in the middle of a request. Reload the page if something’s wrong; maybe it’s just someone else standing in line in front of you!
- The site is only up and running one hour each week. It’s running on an old Raspberry Pi in a timer socket. The site may also be running if I choose to turn on the machine.
The source code for Flumen can be found on GitHub.
