Cool Web sites

If an effort to give you the most bang for my buck, here are a couple of pretty cool web sites I was required to visit for one of my classes. Nevermind the Bullets, a web comic that shows some of what HTML5 can do. Entanglement is a game that really has me hooked.

Gun Posters

I haven’t had the chance to check my RSS feeds for a couple of days.  There are 268 unread blog posts waiting for me, but once I get past 100 or so, I don’t ever seem to get caught up.  I’m sure there is some first rate material in there, given the Convention and all, […]
