As usual, be sure to check out my web page. I've done a lot of work to it the last few days, but you can't really tell, because most of what I did was just changing the code from old style HTML to XHTML and CSS, so it looks pretty much the same, but the code behind it is completely different. I did add some CSS features to make it look nice, and I've added a whole lot more links. There's almost 100 links now, most notably, the Anti-Scientology section. So click here now! You bastards, and she-bastards.
