Instant Nostalgia! :-) This web page hasn't been updated since last century. Until I find the time to update, please consider this an interesting illustration of early to mid 90s web culture :-).

This page is in serious need of an update (last one was several years ago). I don't have time right now, however. (the good news is why I don't have any spare time... a new addition to our family, our wonderful baby daughter :-) )

Anyway, this section is just a quick change to put in a link to a tongue-in-cheek article I wrote that some folks wanted access to... if you're also interested (and have a quirky sense of humor), follow the link to the History of Animation (Parts I and II).
