Version 8.50 February 2009
Things are still moving a little slowly here, with this being just the second update in the past 10 months. However, that is a lightning pace compared to the past few years. That's the downside of trying to offer the world a totally free, noncommercial website -- it's just hard to place it ahead of life's other priorities.
But the world keeps turning, and since the last update to this page, the entire financial system has crashed, we have a new President in the U.S., and the Phillies won the World Series! Lots of change, but this website remains a steady presence, with over13 years of service already. If you fnd a few things that look a little dated, just remember -- nearly everything that's here now is far younger than the site as a whole.
I'm still updating pages, fixing broken links and adding new ones, as time allows. I hope to keep the site relevant and useful for as long as possible. Thanks to all of you who have offered comments or additions.
I do not have a "guestbook" but I do appreciate messages, and I've compiled some of the many nice things that other folks have said about this website, on the Kudos and Kind Words page. Also always worth a look: The user participation pages Famous Last Words, the movie dialogue page; and It's Hard to Say, the tongue-twisters and vocal exercises page, including a couple of originals by your host. Submissions by users that make it online are -- even if belatedly -- listed on the Credits page.
