(or: Mike Padlipsky's Other MAPstuff Place) 

Various things I thought it worthwhile to place on exhibit here to take some of the load off my real ISP, which is a nice little pro bono local operation and not to be confused with my faux ISP that only makes a pathetic excuse for a personal web page available to its victims.  In no particularly special order, really, though going through things in the order presented wouldn't be that bad a mistake if you're not here looking for something "further down" in particular.

[  X  ] Watch this space; someday I'll manage to put a streaming version of the 0th Reunion Movie here, with any luck at all ... it being why I wanted the googpage in the first place, after all.]
