OVVLvverk maintains a very strict policy of minimal commentary on our posts, which we relax somewhat whenever we feel like it.

We wish to thank the keeper of the owls in our particular Amsterdam Zoo, Ms.Sally McKay, and our special Oberluftenant, L.M., and her little dog too. OVVLvverk's parent blog is sally mckay and L.M. jepic is like our parent.

Rob C. is our spiritual godfather, an inspiration to us all. His blog,
The Endless Parade of Excellence, is exactly 1 thousand years old.

This site is hosted by
Digital Media Tree, an extremely excellent server.

Our style is an openly acknowledged rip-off/homage to an exquisite image-based Contemporary-Art blog,
VVORK. Look at it.

Add-Free-Blog logo is pure co-incidence.

Mark Frauenfelder of BoingBoing has encouraged us.

OVVLvverk makes extensive use of Wikipedia and Flickr.
