In the end, I guess, all (personal) webpages fill the same goals. It's not about artistic integrity, or self-expression, or advertising, or ego, or purity, or individualism, or any number of other words. It's about... well... I dunno. Something, anyway. It's about something. Yes. That's it. Something. And in honor of the pursuit of that something, here's my page.

Gaurang Khetan

Gaurang Khetan is a software engineer at Paypal and he keeps an interesting website. There is a nice quotations list, and I especially liked the picture quotes. He keeps also an impressive bookmarks list, which I will spit trough further in the future. Maybe I'll mention some of his bookmarks here in the future...

From his tidbits I'd like to point out the meaning of life and this puzzle. The puzzle isn't that hard to explain, just think it over for a while.

Matt Fuller's little cubbyhole

One of my bookmarks. As you might notice, I got many ideas of this site. It is hard to point out something (Just visit his site and explore), but I would like to mention his rants page, and in particular the "Why windows causes stupidity" rant. I admit it, I also use Windows, but that's not the point. Just read it, I promise you it's worth your valuable time.

A quote on why windows causes stupidity: "Windows has significantly set back and held back the IT industry, and continues to do so. Windows encourages, rewards, and practically demands stupidity on the part of its users, and further attempts to force such on anybody who has to deal with the users."

The any browser campaign

You might have seen them, the "optimized for browser X" buttons on certain websites. More and more web sites are designed only for specific browsers and ignoring others. The any browser campaign would like to reverse this trend. A website should be viewable in all browsers, and totally functional. Some pages may look better in some browsers than others, but they should all be readable by any browser. Well, they've got my support.

"Anyone who slaps a 'this page is best viewed with Browser X' label on a Web page appears to be yearning for the bad old days, before the Web, when you had very little chance of reading a document written on another computer, another word processor, or another network."
-- Tim Berners-Lee in Technology Review, July 1996
