Sometimes you can get weird glitches on a website. Which is to say errors. These are usually easily fixed if you're a master html coder. I'm not. I am but a humble illustrationist, as someone once called me. Now, I'm not saying there's a glitch on the site. There was, but I fixed it. Only took a couple hours. To figured it out. The actual fix took a couple minutes.
On the other hand, I want to redo the front page anyway. Let's face it, I've had that navigation matrix gag for quite a while now. Time for a change. Which may be better, or may be worse. The only guarantee about change is it will be different. After all, going from alive to dead is change, though I doubt that's the kind of change most folks are dying for. OK, actually they are, but you get my point.
So, enjoy this version of the home page while it lasts as I devise a newer more improveder version. Though there's no telling how long that will be.

Fauxcabulary Word #8
sparts noun, plural. Spare parts left over when you build, rebuild, or repair something which still seems to work OK without them. For now.
Admit it, guys, our DIY projects often yield sparts. In which case DIY stands for Destroy It Yourself. Many sparts are washers of some kind. Which don't seem all that essential, but they're there for a reason only engineers seem to know. I mean, if they didn't do anything all the various kinds of washers never would have been invented in the first place.
On the other hand there's ghost parts. Screws, nuts, and do-dads that seem to have vanished somewhere during the process. Though they're not really on the other hand, they're not on hand at all. Springs are especially prone to bound off somewhere and hide. Oh well, I guess you really only need three lug nuts to hold that wheel on....
