About Fincher.org

About Fincher.org

I starting working on this web site in late 1995.

This site was one of the lucky few to receive the "Mirsky's Worst of the Web" award way back on January 3, 1996 for my Christmas site about a stapler.

Good news gets out fast. I then won "Caveman's Worst of the Web" with the same page. Shortly thereafter, the unofficial news source of the Dominican Republic also award my page with the "worst of the web" award.

(My real consolation is that fincher.org has outlived all of those sites).
