«Be it known to all agents that the purpose of this document is to
determine the referent of the URI

This document hereby declares, establishes and records the fact that the
URI is owned by Pat Hayes and is
intended by Pat Hayes to rigidly denote himself, Patrick John Hayes,
commonly known as Pat Hayes, US resident alien and UK citizen, born in the
town of Newent, Gloucestershire, UK, on 21 August 1944, the only son of
Alexander and Betty Hayes and brother of Mary Ellen Hayes, of Canton,
Cardiff: the legal person and living breathing human being whose US social
security number is the decimal rendering of the hexadecimal 21D930EA and
whose facial features can be inspected in Brobdingnagian detail by clicking
here <>.

Any interpretation under which the URI denotes anything other than Pat

and false interpretation. In particular, the URI does *not* denote the HTML
document that is related to that URI by the HTTP GET protocol, the
rendering of said HTML document that you are now reading, Pat Hayes' web
page <>, email address <[log in to unmask]> or
indeed anything that can be encoded in bytes and sent over a network.

Machine-readable information which may help fix the denotation of the URI will be added to this page in due
