Aside from adding new links and removing broken ones, I restructured the categories to include mostly the sorts of stuff that people might actually want to check out. I removed all of the activism links because I cannot update them in a timely fashion, and making people read through outdated activism links and rants is boorish.

Sorry, I don't know how to fix this. E-mail aliases were not working for a day. If your mail to me bounced, try again. Please let me know of any bugs.

One answer updated and one question (outdated since the move) removed from the YAQ. Yes, I really need to get around to adding CSS and sidestepping the unreadably tiny default fonts of the latest browsers. Any millenium now...
