expensive photographers were harmed to create this image. If you
need a stubble-free photo for some formal reason, there are

Are you a web programmer kind of person? Want to convert my website
from 1993 technology to something a bit more modern, in return for very
little money? Let me know!

Fais gaffe: not everything the announcer says is true of the research. He was enthusiastic, though.

(like a supermarket aisle), not about remembering where you put your
keys. webarchive file
