There are some older links in today's walk. I figured everyone was distracted by the Super Bowl yesterday. In case you are unaware of what the Super Bowl is, it is some kind of football game at the end of which a champion is crowned. At least, that's what they tell me, because I watched it, and they gave the "trophy" to the owner of the team first, not the captain, and it was a really small, weird looking thing anyway.
Ah well, to each his own, I guess. Here we go:
