New Site Features
January 2010

I've changed web hosting companies and this new one has some pretty cool featues. I now have a Blog and a nice Photo page.

By the way... My son's computer teacher says my homepage is bland. My response is:
  • The HTML code for this page was completely hand-written using Windows Notepad. Not an easy thing to do with nested tables and such.
  • The black background is from the protest of censorship of the internet a few years ago. It remains black because I feel web censorship is still a threat - even more so with this talk of 'Net Neutrality'.
  • ...and finally. I don't do this for your benefit.
 
   
Fiero => Ferocious
April 2009

We purchased two Pontiac Fiero's this summer, a 1984 2m4 SE and a 1985 GT. Both run but need some work. I've already got the front suspension torn out of the GT.

I'll try to get some pics in the photos area.
