About: This site

This is the blog of Kevin Russell. Its purpose, or lack thereof, is explained in the first post.

Here are acknowledgments for some miscellaneous stuff I’ve taken from other people to make this blog less lame than it might otherwise have been:

  • The fonts you’re seeing, assuming your browser is doing its job right, are Calluna and Calluna Sans, designed by Jos Buivenga, of the amazing exljbris font foundry in Arnhem.[1]
  • The picture of the baboon[2] in this site’s masthead was taken by Gary M. Stolz and released into the public domain, since he took it as part of his work for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.[3]

  1. Gratuitous Gelderland inside slur: Finally a good excuse for Arnhem to exist, instead of just getting in the way of trips to Nijmegen.
  2. specifically an olive baboon, Papio anubis, presumably named after the Egyptian god who, now that I think about it, wasn’t really all that similar to Hanumān. Oh, well. 
  3. I’m still mildly concerned over how exactly a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service employee meets an olive baboon during the course of his work long enough to take a picture of it. Please tell me which national parks and/or Washington suburbs I should avoid. Leaving aside that pressing worry, and at the risk of inspiring another budget-cutting vendetta in some Republican congressman, I’d like to say how cool it is that a foreign government makes pictures of olive baboons available for me to fold, spindle, and mutilate as I see fit.
