Date Update
October 27, 1997 I made some changes. If you've been here before, you should notice some new things. Try and figure out what they are. It'll be a fun little game. Really. (grin)
October 27, 1997 Man, keeping up a page is a pain in the ass. If you notice, I've made some noticeable changes. A lot of the pages are the same, yes, but they will be changing as I work on them. I'm going to attack the links page first. A lot of changes are 'behind the scenes' changes, such as adding new directories and what-not to make my life easier. I've begun to add some new content, as well, so keep an eye out.
October 1, 1997 I've added a Chat page. I have no idea if it works or if it's worth the waste of bandwidth it operates on. It was free. Sue me.
September 15, 1997 : Ahem. I'm going to be a daddy.  I've known for a little while, and the baby's due in March, but we just got the first set of ultrasound pictures.  Check 'em out.
August 29, 1997: Carnival Airlines. Hah.  What a joke.  I'd be amazed if they actually owned their own planes.
July 25, 1997: I couldn't believe it.  I did a search on Grendel (as in Grendel and Beowulf), but for the life of me, could not find one page that even referenced John Gardner'sGrendel. I did, finally, find a literary discussion on Grendel.  How long it will be there is anyone's guess.
July 2, 1997: China has control of Hong Kong.  I've begun my new cool job at Merrin Financial.  The Siteflow Counter no longer will take into account my hits (not that they changed the numbers that much anyway).  I've been published at for my poetry. Life is good.
Special Notice!! (June 9): New Jersey's Manalapan-Englishtown Odyssey of the Mind teams came in 13th (Double Trouble - Division II) and 14th (Can You Dig It - Division II) (out of 60 teams) in the World Competitions held at the University of Maryland - College Park this past weekend.  They competed against teams from Russia, Poland, Japan, and all 50 US States.
Update June 4, 1997 : I put up an essay section where I will begin my rants and raves over what I think should happen in the world.  Responses are welcome.  If I get enough, I'll put up a scoreboard of "Agree", "Disagree", "Rich, you nimrod", and so forth.  Don't forget I have poetry and short stories posted if you wish to torture yourself.
Mid 1996: The first generation of my homepage debuts, to be quickly replaced by two more versions in quick succession, ending in what is now the 'Old Site' linked on the main home page.
