I admin at a brick and mortar that's soon to become a statistic. As the Keeper-of-Secrets I have had to keep a low profile regarding intellectual property.

tags should generally be avoided. If they must

taken to ensure that their contents do not
have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent
horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor
