Miscellaneous Page

This section of my Web site is proving very slow to flesh out. I've always seen this part of the Web site as expanding greatly over time. There are a lot of things that I want to put in here, and I'm determined to get them in at long last!

Some creep tried to rip me off via the old “Great Nigerian Scam” or the “419 Fraud.” I didn't fall for it, and I thought you might like to look at what I got from this idiot.

My first girlfriend was The Evil Morelab. She's a wonderful and odd lesbian. There's a large graphic on her page, so be prepared for it to take a minute to see it; you can read the text while it loads.

So what the hell is this thing?

Mysterious Thing

When I was a kid my attention was caught by the title of William Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night's Dream; the idea of a sub-season (mid-Summer) was new to me. Some years ago I got into looking at not only exactly when the seasons change, but also when we're in what sub-season. Call it a literary thing. Or call it a manifestation of early onset senility. In any event, I've put together a chart showing the times, to the minute, when the seasons change, as well as my calculations of the sub-seasons. With this chart you'll never have to guess whether or not that dream you had was a mid-Summer's night's one!

Here's a Web page I did on the walk that Pickles of the North and I took through the High Line Park in Manhattan on June 12, 2009.

Here's a Web page about an adventure Pickles of the North and I had on an island to the south.

In March 2010, a hugely destructive nor'easter hit the northeast United States. Here's the Web page I did about some of the damage it caused.

If you want to know more about GPG I have some links to information about it, and my own public PGP key on another Web page.

I'll be adding to this page as time permits.

Meanwhile, here's a photo I took of the planet I'm currently visiting.
