Links

This list of links is for me, really, since I tend to forget them over time, or end up somewhere where my bookmarks aren't. Maybe you'll find something of interest. One thing you'll definitely find is the insane number of things that interest me.

NOTE: I don't participate in link exchanges. As you can see from this site, I'm not trying to sell anything, so I have nothing to gain. If you want me to push your product, unless I know it and like it already, I won't. If, on the other hand, you have a link you think viewers of this page would honestly benefit from, you can send it on, and I may choose to add it. But as I said above, this page is really just for me, and I don't care if anyone else is using it. These days I don't use it myself, so the effort of adding a link is often more than I feel like dealing with, unless it's really worthy.
