There are times when I wish I was still running my sites on
tower, a 486 based system
running at 33MHz with 32M of RAM and a 17G
harddrive. That way, when somebody complains that their server isn't a
quad-4GHz CPU monster with 3G of RAM and a few terabytes of diskspace, I can shove

so that would make the final URL:

You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the

using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
