This is the inevitable list of "hot links" or "cool sites" or whatever you want to call 'em. There's also some funny stuff here gleaned from the Internet (especially the Usenet) over the years. As usual, bold links go to a web page on this site, though it may be a gleaning that I didn't write myself. I've given credit when I could find it. You can find more of the same in the Frequently Posted Postings (FPP) Archive, the Interesting Text Files collection, and this Whimsy collection. Also, Silent Tristurls is a reliable source of good miscellaneous links.

Frequently Questionable Answers

I don't have a California driver's license but I'm quoted in the California Driving FAQ (about bicycles).
I've never been to Italy but I'm quoted in an older version of the Coffee and Caffeine FAQ on the subject of making cappuccino in Italy. That FAQ also has tips on making espresso that I did contribute, but they're not credited to me; they can be recognized either by my mention of Thanksgiving Coffee or (on some copies) my "=o=" dingbats.
Folks were using a newsgroup named after "Devil Bunnies" and had no idea where the phrase came from. I explained it to them, so now I'm in the alt.devilbunnies FAQ.
I contributed nothing to the Golem-Building FAQ, but it's too irresistible not to include here.
I once posted a "Varieties of Feminism" article, prompting a thread which blossomed into the soc.feminism Terminologies FAQ.
I also wrote some stuff for the "Signatures" FAQ, showing how to add a signature to your messages with MH and Emacs mh-e (which I use), Emacs Mail Mode (which I use if MH isn't available), and Plain Old Unix Mail (which I use on pathetic systems that lack Emacs). My use of ASCII graphics in signatures has earned me a mention in the alt.fan.warlord FAQ, where they call me a "skilled stylist."
I appear in the Usenet Legends FAQ (a.k.a. the "Usenet Kooks" FAQ), as "notable mostly for [my] unique posting style and paragraph-starting markers, which are usually =o= ...". Well gosh, it's nice to be recognized for something, I guess, but dagnabbit, those things aren't "markers," they're dingbats.

Did You Know?

This "@@" dingbat is an electrical outlet, not a face. So there's no point in clicking on it, especially if your cursor is the pointing hand. Why would you want to stick your finger in an electrical outlet?

Come to think of it, even if it was a face, why would you want to poke it with your finger? What's your problem, anyway?

And in conclusion ...
