The link section has been disabled until I can come up with
something more interesting.  Please feel free to try
the portal if desperate for escape.

Also, the mp3 portion of my babbling is gone.  If you hunger
for music, please visit mt and let me know.

 This is the log of a faceless entity.  I wander around the  |
 web, and point out what are most likely completely useless  |
 things for  you to  visit.   If you know me  in real life,  |
 then you will probably hate this.  Where I have been, what  |
 I learned there, and  what I  plan  to  figure out in  the  |
 future.  Ahh, the healing power of links.                   |

 Technically this  is a "web log".  You  can find many more  |
 of these in the links section, but if none fit your tastes  |
 you can always follow the monkey and get an easily updated  |
 site with Pitas.                                            |

 There are no guarantees.  This site is not affiliated with  |
 anything else  I do.  If you have been linked or mentioned  |
