Welcome to my humble abode


Well, I tried.  I didn't really want this domain name; the one I really wanted was suena.ga but I couldn't get anyone from the Gabon Internet registry to respond to either email or snail mail (at least as of right now; haven't checked the P.O. box in a few days, but it's also been weeks since I sent the request in).  In any case, since I really needed some space to park a bunch of photos (as well as other stuff) and not to hog all of the space on Syndicomm's servers (thanks for all that, btw, Shep and Sarah).
