Bleh. Apparently not caring what you do on other sites or even requiring any personal information isn't good enough for the state of Confusion^WCalifornia, so we have a shiny, new, temporary Privacy Policy posted on every page and linked at the top of the nav bar.

If you feel like prettying the language, layout, or whatever up before I get around to it, feel free to do so and submit a pull request.

    Nostalgia, probably. Everyone remembers their childhood, and their alma mater, and such. So, you get nostalgic, one day, and go for a drive through the old neighborhood. Maybe you even stop to visit the school. And, it's all warped, because none of it's as big as you remember. And, it's probably warped even more, due to the house that burnt down, the house that was blow away by a tornado, and the fifteen new houses, and the thirteen convenience stores that didn't exist.

    Except - at slashdot, the good was all gone before we even left. I mean, how high can you stack guano, anyhow?

    More like remembering the sound of the belt zipping through your Dad's belt loops.

    At the mere suggestion, I heard your comment. And he wonders why I never call.

    Only if you had a childhood that was worth having lived. I mean, if you never got up to anything good enough to get your ass whipped, you wasted yours entirely.

    My rights don't end where your fear begins.
