> but who is "strong bad"?

Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, The Cheat -- these are all animation
characters from the website. Strong Bad is a friend of Homestar Runner.
He has a weekly segment on the website where he answers viewer mail.

Start with this one, where he gives advice on how to build a cool

> who is "homestarrunner"?

I'm a little unclear as to the purpose of this whole site, but here's
what I've gathered -- Homestar Runner is the thing that looks like a
tall skinny white crayon. He's apparently the main character in all
this, and he's none too bright... This whole website is nothing more
than a guy who's really good at Flash, has a weird sense of humor, and
likes to make cartoons.

> also, what's lockergnome?

Lockergnome (http://www.lockergnome.com/) is a free Windows e-newsletter
that highlights cool websites and shareware programs. It's been around
for a LONG time now -- I was a subscriber about 6 years ago. The founder
of LG, Chris Prillio, has a show on TechTV called "Call For Help" -- I'm
not sure if you get that channel (I didn't until August this year), but
it's a basic "how do I share a printer" tech support show.

Chris wrote a book on the power of e-newsletters and responsible e-mail
marketing... I don't remember the title offhand, but a quick Amazon or
Google search on his name would surely reveal it...
