'Tis sweet to hear the watch-dog’s honest bark
Bay deep-mouth’d welcome as we draw near home;
'Tis sweet to know there is an eye will mark
Our coming, and look brighter when we come.
Don Juan: Canto I - Stanza 123.
— Lord Byron

Welcome, traveller, to my humble abode. In your journey through the far reaches of the dark cave system that is the world wide web, you seem to have found my wobsite. Or was it my blag?

No matter — sit down at the campfire, warm yourself, and let me show you around. Home, after all, is where the hearth is. Maybe one or the other text I wrote will be of interest to you. I hope you will enjoy your stay.
