Welcome - we're glad that you're here! We aim to be good hosts and to provide for your online comfort and enjoyment. But you sought us out for a reason - don't deny it... it's like taking 13 steps off the end of a 12-step keyboard. You'll feel better when you accept the fact that you're probably spending too much time plugged in. We've all overdone it, at one time or another, and we're here to support you. What you have to do is stand up, look everyone in the eye, and say:
"My name is _____ and I HAVE NO LIFE!"
That's Interholic Key F1. There are eleven more (see below).
Now, doesn't that help? It's important to admit that things are out of control, before you can accept the support that you desperately need. We've all been there. We know how it feels to stay up most of the night in search of the atomic clock, Salvador Dalí´s Home Page, or the new super high-tech website just created by the Amish. No need to panic, we've provided them for you at the link site below!
MEMBERSHIP - now that you've joined the F12 Online Anonymous Twelve Step Program, you can spread the word to other tormented souls in need of succor. Just click 'n clone this hotkey award to your own website; we simply ask that you provide a link behind it, similar to the following:

If you need help with this procedure, contact your Internet provider. All other F12 content is copyrighted, which means it's unavailable for duplication. Cyberspace elitism's out of style here - the site's been optimized for many browsers, so use whatever you like! Also, you won't need your hard-hat - nobody here codes exploding, half-baked HTML. Although our content is updated continually, we're not under construction. So relax and enjoy the dancing pixels, secure in the knowledge that you're viewing a finished product!
AWARDS - a sampling of the organizations and individuals who have validated our existence:
