Welcome Back!

In our latest collection of articles, we're pleased to welcome a couple of new contributors.

Anne Herbert may or may not have ever received her 15 minutes of fame for coming up with "Practice Random Kindness and Senseless Acts of Beauty," but her words (in various permutations) have appeared in a host of publications and on myriad bumperstickers. She has an interesting way of looking at things, and we're pleased to welcome her to these parts.

Meanwhile, A. Lizard, our old friend from MicroTimes days, has returned with a compendium of useful info for those concerned about Y2K and general disaster preparedness.

Also, Fabian Pascal debunks a few performance myths, Ken Fermoyle discovers a cheap approach to the multi-computer home office, and Kevin Savetz sings the praises of Lynx.
