…in which history repeats itself…. Couldn’t let the day go by without noting the event, though thousands of others have marked it already. A few of my favorites: Golden Gate Bridge Opening May 27, 1937 Pedestrian Walk Golden Gate Bridge Under Construction Golden Gate Opus with the Marin Symphony The SF Chronicle’s take
…in which we once more feel the pain of webmastering… Today started out bright and sunny with a fine breakfast and a quick look at the website revealing slow performance and database connection errors.

…in which we unveil wikiGong sounds. But Ma! I’ve always liked playing with fire…. The link to our left will take you to the wikiGong sounds pages without delay, warts and all. It’s not polished to perfection and maybe never will be, but it’s the last major building block envisioned when we lit up the […]
