  • “Sanka, you dead?”

    “Ya man.” 😉 (Cool Runnings, 1993) Why such a post-title, you ask? For one I haven’t updated the site for a while. Well, I haven’t posted in a while, been doing some behind-the-scenes-stuff though (fixed the 404, changed the background, updated to WP 2.0.2, positioned some impact craters, etc.).
