    that we are on one, flying through the universe at a million miles per
    hour, with no need for seatbelts, lots of room in coach, and really

New Portfolio Website

When I signed up for a hosting account with Dreamhost, the package included a free domain registration.  I decided to go with a domain name which linked to the personal tagline I’ve used on this site (and in my email signature) for the last 10 years: Brain-free since ’73…

The domain in question is www.brain-free.com, and I’m currently using it as a personal portfolio site:

www.brain-free.com

Please take a look at brain-free.com – I’d love to know what you think of it…
