One or two things needed to be salvaged from the defunct smog.net blog, so I pulled all the old posts up, went through them and thought, "Hmm, some of this doesn't suck - why not salvage a bunch of this stuff?" So this well thought-out volume came to be. It's best not to think too much, and this nasty little bottle rocket is proof of that. If I'd a thought about it, I never woulda done it, as Bob Dylan said.
Carry the entire Internet - the good bits anyway - in your pocket! Just like our forefathers would have, if they'd been smart enough to invent these things.
