[#pagetop]: Welcome to
The One Of Greatness And Magnificence
|'s Web Site|
This is the website of TOOGAM. Further details, including contact information, is provided or referenced on this web page, although after some other information such as basic technical information about this site.
The above reference to #pagetop is showing the name of a hyperlinkable anchor. These sort of named anchors may be found on multiple pages on this site. Information about anchors and how to use them conveniently are included elsewhere on this page. Lots of web pages use named anchors, although many sites have named anchors created in such a way that they are invisible when rendered by most web browsers. This site may make the hyperlinkable anchors more easily known than other sites which often leave such anchors hidden from most web visitors.
The first hypertext link on this site's home page is intentionally being used to point to a page for basic web browsers. (This is because such browsers may not be able to scroll down as easily as other web browsers, and this website has been founded by a person who generally invests some effort into compatibility, including making sure multiple browsers can access most material in a pleasant fashion.) The second link is to the Google Search Engine due in part to that web page's simplistic layout.
In respect to users of basic web browsers, and so that this page can act as a warning for those who do not want their web browsers to load and process such material, this page does not automatically download multimedia such as background music, or any substantial, advanced scripting. Other pages on this site may, though.
This page is mainly meant to be reference point where other resources can be found, or visited, by using hyperlinks found on this page. This page is designed to be located at http://TOOGAM.com so following now is a list of hyperlinks to such resources (similar to a table of contents):
TOOGAM is an acronym for "The One Of Greatness And Magnificence", which is a phrase that is a psuedonym for the person who invented the term and founded this website. The term was invented during TOOGAM's youthful high school days when such self-ego was used for its value in humor and reflect a goal of promoting positive self-esteem. The name was designed to be shorter in length than SCVTGAWTMEMRM, a semi-pronouncable ("scuvt-got-mem-rem") acronym for most of what TOOGAM has labeled as his "real" full name: Scott Conrad VanderWoude The Great Awesome Wonderful Terrific Magnificent Exalted Majestic Role Model (The First). (Unsurprisingly, only the first three words of that mumbo jumbo are referred to significantly on his birth certificate.) When TOOGAM considered changing his Internet handle to something that was a more serious and which sounded a less haughty, a friend encouraged him to keep using the name TOOGAM as it has become part of his identity. A new meaning may someday to chosen as an official backronym that abbreviates to the same thing.
The phrase has been abbreviated by TOOGAM further down to "The One Of Greatness", acronymized to TOOG. Due to the homonymity of Too and Two, TOOG has been abbrevaited by TOOGAM to 2g. As an alternative to 2g when starting with a number is disallowed, TOOGAM has also used gg and/or GG.[#abt2gmcm]
This site is the successor to the older site where my home pages had rested on before. Some older pages are still at that location, TOOGAM.Bespin.Org. This site had remained dormant for some time while I believed the web server could be unreliable (as it was self-maintained and I was learning about system administration), and I had wished to implement a feature to keep a copy of all past versions of the site so that one could submit a date and see exactly what the web site looked like at that time, including all older, deleted pages and the 404 error pages one would expect for addresses that may be newer and have been added after the specified date. (For a public implementation on a wider scale, one can see the Wayback Machine website.) I had finally decided, though, to not hold off on the website's public development until that feature was added. As much as it may seem interesting to have that sort of feature be able to go back to the very beginning, I decided that beginning heavier development and public offering of the pages ealier, rather than later, was a bigger advantage. (There didn't seem to be any major advantage to having a sparse, mostly useless site prior to the introduction of that feature.)
In addition to containing information and resources about subjects I may find interesting, which will of course be an appeal to those who are also interested in the same things, my web sites are generally expected to feature:
Other features, such as widespread usage of enhancements such as background music or speech synthesis, which are fully expected to be optional, may become more widespread among pages on my site.
The continued offering of free services might not be guaranteed.
If this site is on a low bandwidth host, then appropriate respect of bandwidth limitations are requested.

This site has not yet posted any sort of content rating tags (like PICS) that are meant to be site-wide.
