Vintage Links

Karen and I are in the process of making our plethora of useless links look like they're actually useful. I am posting them in the information page, but I thought I would also post them under a cut with a link from the info page so that if anyone wanted to suggest new links to add they could just comment on this entry. This may or may not be a great idea, but no harm in trying, right?
I hope everyone's having a great day!
