Some really good CSS going on at yellowpages.ca right now.

I'm back on my "compress Shakespeare for 6502" bullshit...

Ah yes, the classic Netflix trilogy: Pretty Woman, Beverly Hills Ninja, Chashme Baddoor.

Battletoads had a lot of text in it for all the Professor's advice and the Dark Queen's random taunts.

Here it is weezin' along to Weezer.mpg!!!
