PS: Make Something Cool Every Day Update —>Before I actually bought my name as a domain name for my art site, I used to link it as dorsner.dabbled.org. Since that might still be floating around out there somewhere, I figured I’d better have a landing page that redirects people. So for my MSCEApril for Tuesday, I created this webpage. Like it?
