Hi, reader. I wrote this in 2003 and it's now more than five years old. So it may be very out of date; the world, and I, have changed a lot since I wrote it! I'm keeping this up for historical archive purposes, but the me of today may 100% disagree with what I said then. I rarely edit posts after publishing them, but if I do, I usually leave a note in italics to mark the edit and the reason. If this post is particularly offensive or breaches someone's privacy, please contact me.

My referrer logs told me that someone(s) had hit my site from "Xorpheeds", which I assume is a Brendan aggregator. If it's not Brendan, it's a scarily good approximation thereof, for who else would keep up with Neil Gaiman, Leonard, and me?

Also in the log -- the search requests mentioned the word "claughter." Google implies that "claughter" is not just misspelled "slaughter," but also a family name and a mis-OCR'd "daughter."
