About this site:
A Lesson in Site History
This site was born originally as a small geocities site about pencil psychology. The web address,
http://www.geocities.com/pencil_psy/index.html was too long to remember, so the site had few visitors.
I credit (or perhaps blame) myself, Daniel Mayer and a boring science class for this site.
At first, the site itself was pencil psychology and nothing else. Soon, I started playing the game, N-ball
for Macintosh. I created a few levels for the game, which can now be downloaded at this site. I tried
selling them, but I soon found competition in the market and quit after making around $2. Not that
great, considering the amount of testing required.
I posted a section to the site advertising the levels. The section still exists today, but what was once
four different pages is now one. At the original site, it still says, "Will be deleted by August." This
called for a home page that would tie the two unrelated sections together, or an index. The old home
page was the pencil Psychology page, but it was renamed to "indextrue." That name is still used in the
current pencil psychology site because I cannot change it.
The new home page had two links and nothing more. One was a link to pencil psychology, the other to
N-ball levels. Next to them, I wrote a little message that really wasn't about any of the site's content. I
titled the page, "The Fork In The Road." Today, that page has a background but is not updated.
After a while, I realized that the site could not grow from the limits that I had. So I began using Yahoo!
Web Hosting. "The Fork In The Road" became "Tunnels To Nowhere." And the site grew to the way it
Since then, Tunnels to Nowhere has been abandoned, taken up again, abandoned again, and once
again, updated. It has become more of a personal investment, since I know for a fact that nobody
actually comes here.
So why do I bother writing this crap?
I'm not quite sure. This latest "update" comes as the result of Dalia urging me to update, and me
having nothing else to do (except study, which I am repulsed by), as well as feeling inspired. I actually
don't care if anybody reads this.
Why Tunnels to Nowhere?
The name is a reference to the New York City Subway, of which Charles and Dolen are fans (as
evidenced by their blog posts). The transit authority dug a tunnel but did not complete the project,
hence creating a "Tunnel to Nowhere."
