Sections of this website were linked on MeFi previously on October 25, 2001 and August 6, 2002.

Very nice, engaging design on this site, though I must on principle object to classifying Nick Chopper and Captain Fyter as "robots."

Boilerplate served with Roosevelt's Rough Riders and fought alongside Pancho Villa.
