This is Jay’s  Discovery Page. It’s actually just a Google doc,
so I make additions and jot down reminders right on the page.
90% of my life online starts here. Adding a URL to your Discovery
Page saves countless brain cycles and time otherwise wasted
looking things up. Remember to take advantage of the 80/20 rule
when you build yours.
