Thanks for the link, Dan.

Phil's site is awesome content-wise.  I bookmarked it.  I've browsed his web
design book at the bookstore before.  Maybe I'll buy it after checking out
some of the excerpts online.

But good God, the dynamic pages of the site are based on Tcl?!  Come on!
You could type in and email the web pages in the time it takes for those Tcl
pages to process.  Or maybe it's the AOL server on HP-UX that slows it down.
