Generally Informative Stuff

I'll have to admit, this section of the website only began because of the large number of pages of [hard copy] stuff that I had lying around, not because the grades on them were pretty or anything, but because the information on them intrigued me (as such, this is still currently organized by class). So this is my attempt to clean out some of those old binders without losing the information ^_^. Hopefully someone else out there can get some use out of them, too.
