A Return to the Dark Ages of One and One Half Wits Dot Com

Within the limits of this website builder, this section is a reconstruction of the original One and One Half Wits Dot Com, which was created in the opening years of the twenty-first century.  It was authored in learn-as-you-go HTML as part of an ill-conceived effort to meet the requirements of a series of night-school classes toward the attainment of a certificate in web design.  The website was created and the certificate was obtained, but the public interest was not served in the interim.  Scroll down to see the contents for this section.
