uncatagorised

Yup, this site is about to make an abrupt about face. Well, maybe not so abrupt, really, since the contents have served to help refine and hone our Theory Of Pat, which will start filling up pages fairly soon. 

We're still in the learning process of Blog stuff.

We thought about changing the domain name brainsofteners but decided against it because we're all about the BS.

And speaking of BS...

The creation of avatars.

We will expound upon these eventually - oh, and none of the still existing pages matter.  All will be revealed.
