Hi, I'm called the Meteorite King...
I was one of those geeky kids who used to
go with friends to visit the Hayden Planetarium every Saturday and

Hi, this it the web geek that has been given the task of redoing the
MeteoriteKing.com website. If you are one of the thousands coming to
this site after meeting the King at one of many street fairs, expos, or
festivals -- my apology. The King did his part. I have the content sitting safely on
my desktop computer. But alas, a major client (Cisco) called me back for
an emergency contract -- I tell them "plan ahead boys, plan ahead" but
committee work seems to dictate action under emergency, endless planning when not
in an emergency.
In any case, mea culpa (that's fancy latin for the ball was in my court).
Come back soon. The 404s will be gone, and you should be able to browse
all of the wonderful content currently tucked away in a folder on my computer.
Meanwhile, be sure to check out the full story. It's really quite interesting -- especially if you have just been
bitten by the meteorite bug.
