This is a personal website. Don't ask too much, you won't get too much. This website is intended to become usefull, or maybe just cool one day. Unfortunately (for the website) I got twins a few years ago and am therefore busy with other more impatient stuff. Don't get me wrong, babies are a blessing. It's just that they require a little attention from time to time and have to share my free time with the various websites I am working on.

In terms of hosting, I went for the cheapest option: My garage. My DSL line is proudly offering you a 1MB upload capability. So yes, it is a bit slow, and a slashdotting will just kill it off.

On the left, you see the main menu. You can click on the various items.

  • Guestbook. Who doesn't know what a guestbook is? You can write feedback there.
  • Tools. Two tools as of today:
    • Units: Want to convert temperature, length, area, volume or mass between metric and us/imperial systems? This page has been specifically designed for you.
    • Calendar: Allow you to put alerts on a specified day and receive notifications two and one week before, the day before and the due day.
  • Video. As of today, a couple of tests of MPEG encoders (MPEG-2 and MPEG-4).
  • Shopping. A collection of my best and worst shopping experience in the SF Bay Area.
  • User-Agent. A small piece of code provided for free, to detect Browser and OS out of a User-Agent String.
  • Garbage. All the stuff I didn't know where to put. Links, mostly. And all the old pages in this site that are most likely not going to be maintained anytime soon and is not directly relevant to anything I want to do with this site.
  • Visits. This free counter is provided by Web Counter
And having stretched me out upon his bed with my head a little to one side,
he sat down next to me and raised my head upon his lap. He peered avidly at
me, his eyes seemed ready to devour the secretion oozing from my nose. "Oh,
the pretty little snotface," said he, beginning to pant, "How I'm going to
suck her." Therewith bending down over me, and taking my nose in his mouth,
not only did he devour all the mucus between my nose and mouth, but he even
lewdly darted the tip of his tongue into each of my nostrils, one after the
other, and with such cleverness he provoked two or three sneezes which
redoubled the flow he desired and was consuming so hungrily. But ask me for
no details bearing upon this fellow, Messieurs, nothing appeared, and whether
because he did nothing, or becaues he did it all in his drawers, there was
nothing to be seen, and amidst the multitude of his kisses and lecherous
lickings there was nothing outstanding which might have denoted an ecstasy,
and consequently it is my opinion that he did not discharge. All my clothes
were in place, even his hands stayed still, and I give you my word that this
old libertine's fantasy might be performed upon the world's most repectable
and least initiated girl without her being able to suppose there was anything
lewd in it at all.
