information specific to places DAV has been or physical places to which I plan to go.

You might ask, "Isn't everything local ? Isn't everything at some specific location in time and place ?". Much of the stuff DAV is interested in is *not* local to one particular location. For example, maps. I'm also very interested in "timeless" stuff that is not local to any particular century.

Still, "you have to start somewhere".

People that I DAV have actually, physically met F2F. The intersection of the 2 sets "people I know in RL" and "people I know on the 'net". If you wish to be listed here, email me your preferred URL so I can add you to the list.

I encourage eveyone to put a few words on the 'net. Every year it gets a little easier to get online. I think most of the above came online in 2005 (or at least that's when I found out about them).

There's a lot of people that I think are interesting just from their web page , even though I've never even talked to on the phone, much less talked F2F.

I suppose I should mention mad_science.html#people_that_scare_me , as well as a few search tools for finding people search_tools.html#people .

Places in Tulsa OK that sell only new computers: [FIXME: very incomplete. Check online phone book __ for more] (practically all of these places sell desktop, laptop, and palmtop (PDA) computers)

I like to look at and feel computer monitors and keyboards before I buy them. I like to see used computers boot up before I buy them. Computer cases and motherboards, though, I usually buy mail-order. If I don't need a top-of-the-line system (say I'm building a FireWall or a DigitalVCR), it's a lot cheaper to buy a used computer. DesktopComputers LaptopRecommendations

Before buying a used PC for $300, check out what you can get new for $300:

"Kevin Savetz' Guide To Buying a Ridiculously Cheap PC" "reviews, specs, buying tips, news, and hot deals on new computers for under $300. I only talk about ready-to-use PCs - these systems all come pre-built, with memory and a hard drive. You just need to add a monitor and (in some cases) install an operating system." http://www.savetz.com/cheappc/

[FIXME: how do these places compare against each other ? against mailorder ?]

calling cards and business cards

(2" x 3.5" paper cards, not to be confused with "credit" plastic cards or "post cards")

When my grandmother was a little girl, just about everyone had personal calling cards (and just about everyone wore hats, and just about everyone carried a pocketknife to school). Why are they so rare in 2003 ?

On the other hand, people now wear t-shirts with messages on them ... [FIXME: move links to t-shirt printers here ?]

[FIXME: there are many, many business card printers and t-shirt printers online. Consider only listing *reviewers*, making sure all the particular businesses I used to list are mentioned by the reviewers. ]
