The Latest News
(good stuff... about me, usually)


Wow!! These pages were officially declared the GEEK OF THE WEEK site by BSOB.net for the week of October 1, 2000. I am so proud!! *sniff* I would like to thank the Geekademy...

Couple of months ago, I noticed over 300 hits on the ol' website the previous month from some new place I'd never heard of... and hits to new pages that normally don't get hits. Well, I managed to track down why, and I am borderline speechless... there was a rave forum where someone posted a list of ways to know you were a geek, and number 50 was "You look like this:" next to my picture!! It was here, but has since disappeared. I just wanna know how the poster found my page in the first place... I'm certainly not into the rave scene at all, heck I can't/won't/don't/hate to dance so perhaps I really don't even wanna know how they found that! hehehe...

I'm back at TNG/inetUSA! doing web pages... who'da thunkit?? Things going very well, I am finally really enjoying my job... The OV-10 model has been started, working on it very slowly lately due to chronic busyness... My slope-soaring page was mentioned in the April 2000 issue of Model Aviation magazine (page 17, I'm the Florida listing), so far as I know it's the first mention of my site in a major (over a few thousand copies) type of publication... survived Killer Arthropods at Ichetucknee... woohoo!

(And yeah, I'm sick of the damn music on this site too. I'll nuke it when I get a chance. Might take a year, but I'll do it. Eventually. Whatzamatta, your escape key doesn't work?)

Oooooops, wrong script. Um... where was that disclaimer... ummm... oh yeah, here it is. *ahem*

I reckon that these here webpages are the personal homepages of Mike Whaley (merlin@ov-10bronco.net) and everything in this here area, the /users/merlin/ area that is, is all his fault and nobody else's, unless he done gone and tell you different. This site is hosted by OV-10Bronco.Net, however the rantings, ravings, advice, truths, half-truths, outright lies, tall tales, short stories, hearsay, and opinions expressed under the /users/merlin/ section do not necessarily reflect the opinions of any other entities associated with OV-10Bronco.Net or any of its sponsors or contributors. Yell at me if you want to, but that's just the way it is. So there.
