October 11, 2017: The page below this top section and the rest of this site, pulled from a floppy disk I had lying around, is a snapshot of the original server as it looked almost 20 years ago, shortly before it was shutdown. Many of the links have rotted meaning they are no longer pointing to valid or complete pages. The page has mostly been left as-is to affect a semblence of historical realism at a time when Facebook and Twitter, well, were not yet in existance. I did add the (obviously non-live!) moving images from my archive to add to the fun. Enjoy!
See also the following postings I've learned about since the original site's existance, and most of which are very contemporary:

The contest for Cornell undergraduate students (March 13th deadline, now past): What is it? Answer: A pumpkin! See the contest winner's close-up from fly-by performed by undergraduates Jon, Sam, Eldar, and Fred! Sorry if you're having problems getting the close-ups.
Want to see what all the fuss was about? Go to this day-time picture to see the pumpkin as it sat atop the McGraw Tower from October 8, 1997 to March 13, 1998.
