Welcome to my little corner of the internet.

akardam.net has evolved over the years. It has usually included a collection of my projects, in varying states of completeness, photos of people & places & things in my life, and sometimes random thoughts from my stream of conciousness, though my ability to maintain a journal suffers mostly from my lack of something interesting to say on a regular basis.

Anyway, if you're reading this I'm glad you've come across it and as always I hope you find something interesting or amusing here before your travels take you down another random set of tubes.

I suppose some of the variation between Boston drivers and the rest of the
country is due to the progressive Massachusetts Driver Education Manual which
I happen to have in my top desk drawer. Some of the Tips for Better Driving
are worth considering, to wit:

"Directional signals are generally not used except during vehicle
inspection; however, a left-turn signal is appropriate when making
a U-turn on a divided highway."

"When paying tolls, remember that it is necessary to release the
quarter a full 3 seconds before passing the basket if you are
traveling more than 60 MPH."

"When traveling on a one-way street, stay to the right, so as not
to interfere with oncoming traffic."
