Captain Baylor's Links

The links shown here haven't paid to be here. They're here because they've shown themselved to be useful in their fields. Ones with askerisks (*) are ones I've dealt with and had good results. If I've had bad results, they're not listed, but not being listed may mean I've just never heard of your store or service or don't have a web address.

December 22, 2011—I started this page over 10 years ago. I just went through and removed some broken and dead links and added some of my friends, but I really haven't had the time to do a thorough update. If I've missed you, and you know who you are, let me know.
