- The vast bulk of my massive Web presence (over 485 pages) had been hosted by AT&T's WorldNet service since 30 May 1996; they dropped
WorldNet effective 31 Mar 2010 and I have been scrambling to transfer everything. Everything's saved but all the links have to be changed, mostly by hand.
See my sbiii.com Transfer Page for any updates on this tedious process.

This page created to handle the overflow of

END (to date) [Which end do you want to date?]
and what WAS that other absolute gem I thunk up while motoring up to
London (England) in Oct 98?
These definitely go from the s(ub)lime to the ridiculous! Definitely Zany! And I don't even have the decency to apologiZe!
Hey! How come there are (or were) HO Quick Oats but no Z Quick OatZ? No fair! Ah, but see Z-scale page. (21 Apr 05)
At least, if inspiration struck, you wouldn't see this - but it's working hard.
Surely, a grown man must have something better to do than this!
If you enjoy this idiocy, you've gotta see my Zictionary, my Pseudodictionary/A>, and the real Pseudodictionary!
