What's going on here?
I am Doug Kavendek, and this contraption here is my site. It is the fourth or fifth generation of it, but this is the only version that should matter, because it is the first one to be primarily green. Plus, if you register a user, you can edit comments and have new items highlight when you return. These are things I never dreamed were possible, back when I hand-crafted each journal entry's HTML in garish pinks and yellows and stored them on Angelfire.
This site serves two purposes:
- It provides an outlet for my excessive ramblings in the journal section. These are very honest, sometimes inaccurate, occasionally vulgar, at times too long and boring, and almost always up for debate. I welcome any input, so even if you hardly know me, leave some comments. Be wary of some of the regulars who post here too, as they can be somewhat weird -- but that goes well with my entries.
- The pictures section is quite extravagent itself, and constantly growing. Unlike other sites in this here interweb, I spend a bit of time trimming and resizing my images and choosing only the more interesting shots. Thus, you do not get 15 nearly identical photographs of me standing in front of a bus or something. Seriously, what the hell is with that kind of crap. But even still, I've got over a thousand of them uploaded at present. Says something about me, don't it.
So see what you can find here. If you decide to delve into the older entries, please do so with an open mind, as I started this thing quite a long time ago (around or before 1999!), and I look at my earlier ramblings with a mixture of embarrassment and curiosity. I do not claim to know everything now, or to have perfected my own style of writing, but some of what I wrote back then is just atrocious. Also, any mention of page layout is entirely outdated. Various contact information is available in the contact section, and assorted links and files and projects can be found in the stuff section.
If you are interested in RSS feeds, there is the main one available here, which details all site updates along with comments and forum posts. If you'd rather not hear all the heathen nonsense comments, you can subscribe here instead, and only get site updates, but then you are missing half the fun.
Anyway. Good luck.
