This is just a repository of random stuff written mostly for my records (not all of it, but a good part). I don't claim it is cool, new, original, good, accurate (or even correct, for that matter), or $whatever_you_might_think; I'm just putting it here in the unlikely case that somebody else might find it useful and/or interesting, just as it was for me.
Some of the topics covered here originate from discussions I read in newsgroup or mailing list which I think deserve more in-depth understanding.
And if you're wondering about the nickname: play this sport, and you'll soon find out where it comes from (or just read here).
