Fred's Labyrinth

    my very old and outdated resume or my current blog

    Just wandering around here, I'm amazed that some of these files have timestamps from over 10 years ago. Wow. Sitting around unmodified for that long. And most of these were actually migrated from the Texas A&M site, so the age may be much older than that. It is tempting to give this site a CSS overhaul. But, the ugly Netscape 1.0 era display has a little retro charm. At the moment, I've been spending too much time on College Football, but the season is winding down, and getting in to the slow-mo bowl season. I guess that's about it for this update. Maybe in a few years, I'll put some more in.

    It's also interesting to see what people are looking at. The Turn Turn Turn analysis seems to be most popular. A couple essays on Movie Ratings and Romanian Civil-Military relationships are popular, as is an essay on Poe's contribution to the short story [Hmm, I wonder if I can find a few paragraphs of that one in some high school papers.] A short article on the Chinese Revolution has also garnered some attention. And last but not least, the Little Princess and Liesel Matthews pages are still getting some hits. (Perhaps I should try to put some of the images back up.) I've also noticed all sorts of old emails littered throughout the site. Maybe a rebirth elsewhere would be in order.
