There's more to Real Life than the usual crap on web pages, isn't there? To know me in Real Life (assuming you even care), you have no choice but to do it the old fashioned way, i.e. through personal contact. So I'm going to assume that you i) already know me; ii) are stalking me; or iii) somehow landed up here following random links. In any of these cases I wash my hands of all responsibility or anything you read here.

And do we really need those godawful patterned backgrounds with crapulent coloured text? I remember when Macintoshes and laser printers first became popular, every flyer and newsletter you saw had about 74 different fonts on it. Web pages seem to be going the same way, with the added agony of colour.

Wouldn't it be nice if the Web was about content and not stupid frame-laden flashing-icon-filled commercial garbage? So, no gratuitous javascript, no commercials, and no `ducks'. (My thanks to ERTufte.) *

I commute on my bike--why don't you consider it too? And, if you are hopelessly overqualified and have priced yourself out of the market, consider the Ph. D. Expunging Service.
