Elaborate, confusing, failing to conform to accessibility guidelines. This page documents some of the favorites I have come across, with some rants.

i have added a basic homepage variant to this website so that it is compatible with the nintendo wii and kindle experimental web browsers. this is entirely necessary for important reasons.

i also had to disable strict https enforcement to get it to work on wii, but who cares about security, no one is sending me their credit card information through this website

if you do want to send me your credit card information, please email me

just listened to a brilliant documentary about that weird anxiety that happens as dawn breaks
explores how we leave ourselves the most vulnerable at the times of 4am, at the time the sun rises,
both evolutionary, and at the mercy of our own thoughts,
with some very nice poetry

as a sufferer of anxiety and sleeplessness it really struck me

may have made me cry

BBC Radio 4 - The Dawn-Care
Helen Mort explores the Old English word ‘uhtceare’, which meant anxiety before dawn.
