You know, I really need to get one of those “mood” things to indicate how I feel when I write about something. Frankly, that’d probably make my life easier; I wouldn’t have to explain myself as much. (Not like I don’t do that anyway in real life, almost to the point of confusion.) So here… Read more Merry Chr.. err… Happy Hol… uhm… Hi.

I found a couple of pretty interesting links today, some on my own and some sent to me. I figured I’d share. Good stuff, even they don’t end up on the Links page. ######Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter 2: Nice little flash movie where Ryu and Scorpion duke it out.
