Just want to let you know, I'm working on migrating to a more modern web stack, since this was started as a side project a very long time ago.

Hopefully, I'll have more time to focus on bijou for some time.

September 29 2021

Sorry guys, I decided to rebrand again. I guess it's time for some history, and justifications, from my part. It all started it with grand visions back in 2016 under the name Lists.fm, which is a pretty decent name I guess - pretty self explanatory. But perhaps a bit boring. So when the grand visions for Lists.fm faded, and other projects took over, it became quite burdensome to pay for the really expensive .fm domain name. I then - all to quickly - decided to rebrand and get a cheaper domain name, which became sergei.app. Sergei was born, and it was a terrible name from the get go. But my attention were elsewhere by now and I kept it going for a while, until I decided to take Sergei down and focus on my other project. People then started reaching out to me, and I tried giving over the reigns to someone willing to maintain and develop it - but without luck. Then one day, last week, I decided to put sergei back. And shortly after I decided to give it a new name, to go with the new updated color scheme. It became bijou.fm. I hope you like it, and that it sticks this time around!
