Site notes

Some change at my web host has caused all of my redirection links (i.e. those http://willbenton.com/go/to ones) to cease working. I’m going to try and fix it soon. You may have noticed that I changed the theme a bit — now, you can see recent comments on the right. So if you ever experience a shortage of tirades from baton-twirlers with poor reading comprehension or bartering offers from Japanese-whisky enthusiasts with poorer reading comprehension, you’re in luck. (Note that I am referring to proponents of Japanese whisky, not to Japanese proponents of whisky; also note that, as of today, this site is the #3 Google hit for “Nikka whisky.”)

The “latest photos” are temporarily gone while I rework my photolog to use Gallery. The old photolog will remain accessible at photo-classic.willbenton.com. Of course, since the majority of my recent exposures are strictly of WT, you can see the latest kid pictures on my flickr photostream.

Analogy neutrality

The EFF’s Mike Godwin has a nice analogy for net neutrality: taxi service in NYC. Of course, everyone knows that phone companies are worse than the Nazis.

1999 vs. 2006

It’s probably time to update the infamous waterskiing photo:

Skiing, 1999
Skiing, 2006

Well, at least the incompetent fellow has his youth (and most of his hair).
