WHAT IS THE JUNKYARD?
THE JUNKYARD is a website dedicated to the PFMagic computer game series, Petz! More specifically Petz 4, though most of the content isn’t specific to any one version, that’s just the one I play.
When I was a much younger kid, I used to play Ubisoft’s rendition of Petz (specifically the Wendy’s kids meal CD-ROM variant, which is a very simple game but it entertained young-me for years), but I didn’t discover PFMagic’s Petz until November of 2019 after stumbling on a free download while browsing Reddit. I’ve always had a thing for old computer games, and I had fond memories of the version of Petz I played as a kid, so I decided to give a try. I fell in love instantly.
I discovered and joined the Petz community pretty quickly after. I loved (and still love) showing, as well as natural raising and training. I also quite like hexing, though I’m not very good at it yet lol. But one of the things I loved most was that almost everyone had a website- their own unique domain to showcase their unique Petz experience. I always wanted one too, ever since I first joined, but I didn’t know the first thing about code, and I was never happy with the look of guide site creators (such as Weebly or Wix).
After May 2020, I ended up taking almost a 2-year break from Petz (with a time in late 2021 that I briefly returned before leaving again), and over that break I learned how to code for other purposes. Now that I have my head around the basics (emphasis on basics, I'm no web design master), I'm finally ready to have a petzy domain of my own! So here it is, officially dubbed THE JUNKYARD! I look forward to adding to it more and more over time.
WHO IS THE MAN BEHIND THE JUNKYARD?
AKA: Who is THE JUNKYARD dog(g).
As I said on my homepage, my name is Jason. I’m a 16 year old guy with a thing for computers and animals and computer animals. I know I’m a bit young compared to most of the Petz community, but I’ve always been drawn to older games, especially CD-ROM games.
Some hobbies I get up to include drawing, writing, coding, musical performance (saxophone + keyboard percussion), and taxidermy/bone collecting. One of my biggest interests ever in the whole world is the book series Warriors. Some video games I like (outside of Petz of course) include WolfQuest, Minecraft, Battleblock Theater, and Pokemon, as well as my vast collection of old CD-ROMs and PS2 games.
Anddd here are some random facts about me, if you’d really like to get to know me.
- I know a lot about typology. I’m an INTP 5w6 512 sp/so, if that means anything to you.
- My current career plan is to become a teacher. Not married to any particular subject or grade level yet, but I’ve been seriously considering becoming a high school band director specifically as of late.
- I have a dog named Doc. He’s a bit of a dick but I love him. I’ll probably put pictures of him up here eventually.
- My favorite band is Modern Baseball and I have listened to their entire discography at least 10 times through. My close second favorite is ABBA.
