I am the ghost of groovymother.com. Woooooo!

This is an old page from Rod Begbie's blog.

It only exists in an attempt to prevent linkrot. No new content will be added to this site, and links and images are liable to be broken. Check out begbie.com to find where I'm posting stuff these days.

tr.im R.I.P.

Another URL shortener gets shuttered. As it turns out, unless you slap frames and shite over the links you bounce users to, there’s no business model.
