Solderpunk's Phlog
       Bitter complaining about the state of the modern internet,
       interspersed with electronics tinkering, homebrew computing and trying
       to live simply, minimally and deliberately.  So much fun at parties.
       Except for posts which are replies to things posted in Gopherspace, or
       are otherwise only likely to be of interest to the Gopher community,
       everything posted here is also posted to my gemlog at:
