Don't know who this is or why you should care? Don't feel bad. Sometimes I get a little confused about it, too. See all that stuff in the banner up top? Hop-scotch through the site to learn more about my projects and just what's going on. I hope you enjoy yourself, but I make no guarantees.

As a disclaimer, I link to a bunch of stuff around the internet. Although I've traveled to these places and have not had my computer melt on me, I make no promises that your computer will not explode or contract some kind of terrible hyper-flu.
