while not currently broken, any site hosted on a public clusterblog server like that one is bound to be, sooner or later.

I have a photo of a road sign that says "Road Ends 0 mi", and the road ends abruptly, right there.

I should send it to him.

The playground stuff is great .. it just got printed and put on on the wall in the hallway where I work.
