Will's Obsessions



I have a whole lot of projects here on my website and on my other websites. And you probably have figured out that I am obsessed with a lot of different subjects, hobbies, and topics. But this page isn't really about all that (that's what the whole website is for) This page entitled "Obsessions" is a listing of some of the more popular projects that are on-going. I guess you could call the obsessions. If you are looking for an update on a particular project or a particular subject this is the place where I list how to find them.
