|What the purpose of all these links? Why do I care?
No reason at all. I spend copious amounts of time on the internet, and I find things. I bookmark them if I think I might want to look at them later. The trouble is, as I move about from place to place using other computers, my bookmarks don't follow me. A huge bookmark menu is difficult to use as well, so I try to prune it and put the most useful (or fun) links here.
