This poke at dumb laws shamelessly borrowed from wirelessbuzzers.
A note on my conduct:
I am a Weird Person™. The people who meet me in person and get to know me face-to-face come to realize that I am a good-natured person who usually means well. Online, that is more difficult for you to do. If I say something that offends you, I probably did not mean to. (Probably because I haven't insulted anyone online yet, but may succumb to the pressure eventually.)
I may also say something that sounds quite unusual, on the fringes of society or accepted behavior. This is likely a result of me being a Weird Person™ - my sense of humor is somewhat twisted. I often push the boundaries of what is socially acceptable, looking for humor. (I even find it, occasionally.) But, my idea of socially acceptable is also Strange™ in some ways. Things which affect my view of social acceptability:
Of course, it is also possible that I said something unpopular - and meant it. I have some philosophical, political, and theological views which are not considered mainstream. And not just the Slashdot Political Party stuff. But that should be pretty obvious, in context.
- I am an American. I grew up in California and now live in Washington state.
- I am a Christian. I spend a lot of time in church activities, and a lot of time with Christian friends.
- I am an engineer. I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Either I am Dilbert, or I work next to him.
This confession was made in an effort to avoid misunderstandings. If you have read this and are still unhappy with me, /msg me - if I've done wrong, I want to know. I want to correct what I can, and make apologies where they are appropriate.

Heard TheDamian speak at SPUG about how he has customized his work environment. If you get a chance to hear him talk about this, drop everything and run. It wasn't HyperOperatedSuperPosition, it was information (and more importantly a method of thinking) which I can start applying to make myself more productive.

More Damianiacle talking at SPUG. The same topic that he had at YAPC::NA in Boca Raton. When I grow up, I want to be 1/100000000 as smart as him. (Pssst - I'm 27. :)

Weapons Code info
- 0.1.1 - I converted the previous version to nested lists, while keeping the structural tags. I don't like using lists to provide the visual formatting I want (indenting each level), but not enough browsers support CSS. And the visual formatting is a great aid in finding something you're looking for.
- 0.1.0 - The first non-table homenode. The node uses HTML's structural markup to organize a large, diverse body of information. I hope that the content is as organized as the markup.
- 0.0.1 - My first try at a linkful homenode. It used tables for layout, because that was the way to get text to show up on Netscape 4 - the 'standard' browser at work. But I've put Phoenix on my work machine, so I was freed to try something other than tables.
