If you’re just joining the Institute, welcome! The Institute of Official Cheer has been on the internet since 1996 or so; it goes fallow for a while, then springs to life with an enormous new project, gets some half-baked redesign based on some fancy I got that looked good right up until I uploaded it.
This is the most recent example of that, I suppose.
That's what I said when I redid the site in 2014. I went on, as I am wont to do:
"The site’s been redone top to bottom, with a few exceptions that redesigning would only spoil. (Still haven’t redone Stagland.)"
Note: I wrote the above in 2019. Still haven't.
I suppose I will some day, but other projects have taken over the role of the Institute. A lot of stuff gets off-loaded into Miscellany, which is a catch-all for ephemera, and not always intended to be amusing. (Although it is sometimes. I hope.)
NOTE: Two sites have been moved. The entirety of Comic Sins has been given its own top-level site! It's here.
Likewise for the Seventies, which is now part of the utterly inessential Decades Project. It's here.
