Welcome to My Web!

Here are links to many of my favorite places on the Web. This is an expanded (more categories!) and improved version of the old list that lived on the previous incarnation of this site. I hope to update it further sometime in the next century because I've found so may more fun and interesting places on the Web since the last time I did a major update.

I have arranged these links in categories and in alphabetical order (more or less) within those categories. This list of links finally became so large that I made a master list of categories immediately above this intro.

These links are provided for your information and Web surfing pleasure, and reflect many of my own interests and activities. You can jump to your own conclusions about what kind of person I am. This is by no means an exhaustive list of links for the categories included. If you're intrigued by what you see here, you can hunt down your own favorite links on the subject(s). All standard disclaimers apply, especially the one about these links having absolutely nothing to do with the opinions (or anything else) of my employer, Into Networks, Inc., or anyone else for that matter. Happy Surfing!
