- Our little corner of Cyberspace
This website is intended to showcase the trials and tribulations encountered by the mild-mannered Brian Latimer
(otherwise known as … well … Brian Latimer), in attempting to create his presence on the web.

Well, that may not be the real "purpose" of this site, but you get the idea.


Welcome to Latimer dot org!

Yes, I finally decided to get my own domain, so you are now viewing the ever-so-conceited vanity domain of Brian Latimer ("Lucky" who?) and his family.

The impetus for doing so is my upcoming wedding to my wonderful, beautiful, light-of-my-life-and-soon-to-be-wife (gee, how illiterative!), Patricia. I wanted to have a web location which we could both use to track our lives together, post things we want to share with family and friends, and just generally have a reference site which we can point others toward, in order to use this new-fangled internet-thingy to expand our friend base, as well as keep in better touch with others.

And, how did I tell my family about it? Well, the geek in me gave Patricia, my Mom, and my Dad, very simple gifts for Christmas: A postcard with nothing but a new email address on it. Which, of course, was met with quite a few quizzical stares, until I showed them the domain, and what could be done with it. The hope is that we will all have a very permanent email address, so old friends might be able to find me, and new ones to easily keep in touch.

Note that I do have a few "secret" areas on the site. Check for image maps in the main header, and see where they lead.

And for those who might ask: Yes, I actually prefer ".org", as opposed to ".com" or ".net", since I am not a commercial entity, nor an internet service provider. I really wish that ICANN and InterNIC would actually enforce the rules behind registration of sites using these TLDs...
