How this works

This isn't really a blog, but a growing list of links. I try to keep them organized by function. Please use the date of the post as your indicator of the last time I've updated a given post/subject.
I started this for my own reference (yes, as bookmarks), but decided to "set it free". Well, not that free. I don't like social bookmarking, so here it is.
