The Graveyard.. Pages I used to like but aren't up any more. Rest in Peace. My new comments are in bold.
The Music of
Charlie Manson
There are many benefits to a good college education. There are tremendous intellectual resources and influences that can change your life forever. There are cutting edge computer resources to express yourself in ways undreamt of a few years ago. And there are clinics with friendly therapists with big bowls of anti-psychotics.
Randal Sharpe Another UIUC math department dropout (like John and myself) that is also making rather more than the successful ones. And he looks so innocent, too.
Beyond Borders
Photography Gallery
Professional photography from around the world. The really awful bit is that the domain name has taken over by a bunch of evangelicals. Dead and cannibalized.
The Knot Square Mathematical Knots. {pretty! pretty!}

Launch a spud a mile! Skid on your face at 50 mph! Now, *this* is why we have technology.

The Norwich Masquerade Playing (?) vampires.
Sayre's World. Sayre used to be a stay-at-home housewife that only got out through the internet. She also used to have a pretty impressive list of mental illnesses. I'm actually kind of worried her site went offline.
S.I.C.O Play chess against the whole world -- but don't worry, you've got the whole world on your side.
Tamagotchi Simulator Oh yeah right. A java simulator of a virtual pet. You can even push an imitation button to pretend to flush the artificial poop of the simulated virtual pet.
The Clocktower The Tower is broken, rubble all around -- but the shadows we see are still much of the best, most unique art on the web.
Deadly Embrace A murder mystery in movies.
King of The Cats They ran an insanely cool graphic BBS that got eaten by the web. Now the gravestone website is gone.
