Curious George: a stupid webhosting question I need a cheap web hosting service with < 500MB of storage, PHP/CGI support, a few mailboxes, and MySQL - not much to ask for.

Molecular Expressions Michael W. Davidson, director of the Optical Microscopy Division of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, has put together some galleries of photos taken with ridiculously high-powered microscopes.

Jayson William's wife has a web site. For those of you not familiar with Jayson Williams, he is a basketball player who is being charged with accidentally shooting someone (his chauffeur, I think) on his property. OK, I guess it's really *his* site--aimed at damage control or otherwise at influencing public opinion. Can't blame a guy for trying.....I just think it's funny he named his son Tryumph.
