"Genius is the ability to reduce the complicated to the simple."
What is Shonky Internet?
Well for a start, shonky.com is no longer shonky.com because the aptly named Joker (our former registry) didn't email
us to tell us the domain was expiring, and it got snatched by a speculator. More fool them, now they are stuck with
a shonky dot-com they want $25,000 for. So now we are Shonky Internet Systems or something,
but I am not changing the logo so there.
Shonky Internet is a small
collection of people
dedicated (when we are not
doing something else) to the philosophy that not a lot that happens on the
Internet is really Rocket Science.

Ok, so we admit, some other people can write
good things too... Sometimes.
Other Shonky things we find amusing:
- Michael's shonky artwork - Ode to relay.bt.net...
- We used to have a
Gary Larson picture here but his lawyers
asked us to remove it.
We like Shonky Lawyers but we don't like short sighted idiot ones.

Ah well, we may find another one day!
