Lots of new people coming here, which is nice, if slightly confusing.
First off I'd recommend you going and reading some of the people I link to, there are some absolute gems over there.
Then if you want to play catch up, and read some of the posts I think best explain me/my job – then look at 'The Story So Far' between my blogchalk and the Webrings. (Suggestions for additions here will be gratefully received).
If I disappear it's because my bandwidth got broken, if so come back next month – I'll still be here…
