The name for this site comes from the sky of my city. On very cloudy nights the sky is a amber shade, this is due to the fact that I live in the metro area and there are lots of lights that are never off. So, it's hardly dark and there's a pinkish tint to the sky on those nights.
This site was originally started in the summer of 2003 when I purchased the domain on June 28, 2003. I had bought a reseller account for my other site and decided to start another site. I had been interested for a long time in making my own free graphics site, and since I had the resources, I did. The site was launched to the public on August 19, 2003.
My main goal with this site is to keep the layouts simple and fast loading. I personally don't like extremely busy layouts that are so graphic heavy that they kill bandwidth and take forever to load.
My first site was created back in 1999 and was a general Nine Inch Nails fansite (it's now defunct). My second site TDBA (which is an manga/anime gallery), was started sometime in 2001 and is still active.
