Numanme is old, first established on June-1-1999.
Why did you start Numanme?
As a simple homage to Gary, but as you can see it has grown and grown into what I think a very useful site, covering many aspects of Gary's career. This site is simply trying to show the world that Gary has done so much in he's career and life did not stop after cars. This site is dedicated to promote Gary Numan in a positive way.

Do you have any bootlegs for sale or trade?
We at Numanme do not sell or make Bootlegs, so no we don't sell, but as collectors we are always happy to buy if the price is right.
What are "bootlegs"?
A bootleg recording is an audio or video recording of a performance that was not officially released by the artist or under other legal authority. The process of making and distributing such recordings is known as bootlegging.
A great many such recordings are simply copied and traded among fans of the artist without financial exchange, but some bootleggers are able to sell these rarities for profit, sometimes by adding professional-quality sound engineering and packaging to the raw material. Bootlegs can consist of recordings of live performances or material created in private or professional recording sessions.
Changing technologies have had a great impact on the recording, distribution, and varying profitability of the underground industry. The copyrights for the song and the right to authorize recordings often reside with the artist, according to several international copyright treaties.
The recording, trading and sale of bootlegs continues to thrive, however, even as artists and record companies attempt to provide "authorized" alternatives to satisfy the demand..
Is buying/selling bootlegs "wrong"?
Legally-speaking, yes. Morally, you'll have to decide for yourself. If you DO buy "bootlegs" or other unofficial merchandise (for example, t-shirts at a concert that are not printed/sold within the venue), realize that you're almost certainly breaking the law, and one way or another, taking money out of the artist's pocket.
How do you find the time to do this?
I manage my time very carefully. I work on this site whenever I can (mornings, nights, weekends, vacations), I don't sleep much, and I avoid heavy meals and dinners and the wife LOL.
How often will you update this site?
At least once a week, hopefully more often. My plan is to constantly revise material whenever and as often as I can, both in light of new events surrounding Gary Numan. Nothing on this site should be taken as a final product, and everything is subject to updating.
How long can you keep this up?
Honestly, I don't know. This site will grow over time and it will spread, but as important as this is to me, it's not the only thing in my life and I am just one guy. But hopefully with help from fellow fans providing information it will make the task of keeping the site up to date easier.
What Resolution was Numanme designed in?
Numanme was designed to be viewed @ 1024 x 768, but you can also view it @ 800 x 600, to get the best from Numanme I do advise you to view the site @ 1024 x 768.

Why only samples of songs and not full length songs?

Polite Notice To Numan Site Authors.
I appreciate the effort that you all put into your sites, I really do. BUT. Anyone that thinks putting entire songs on-line in near CD quality MP3 format is helping my career in any way is sadly mistaken. Lesser quality samples are still illegal but infinitely more acceptable to me. Let's be honest, I'm hardly a big seller am I, and so giving my songs away is a bizarre way of trying to help. In the future anyone putting up MP3 files of entire Numan songs (clips of tracks don't bother me) will be removed from this page. I have no wish to get heavy, I will not inform the various authorities in any country, but I'm buggered if I'm going to link to people that I genuinely believe are harming me.
Whether you agree with me or not, giving my music away is NOT your decision to make!
What is the video Media format on Numanme?
Predominately the site uses Youtube for its music and Video source and all players are HTML5 cross-browser compatible.
I can not install flash wallpapers on Windows
Windows no longer supports ActiveX wallpaper feature which allows flash wallpapers.

Why don't you watermark the images on this site?
Well its simple watermarks look ugly, and as I don't legally own the copyright of the picture or album art so what is the point unless I got a big ego. Having numanme.co.uk would serve no purpose at all, in my opinion it just spoils the viewing pleasure of visitors to the site.
