    Gyrus refers to brain (but this, no way!!!). Looks like an insect nest-maybe a wasp nest…

    Like a puzzle, this is hard to crack just by using your head — I’ve tried.

    while an apricot, old person (scottk!), skin, insect nest, are definitely interesting answers- here’s the original:

    The new site design is up, and we’ll be fine-tuning it over the next several weeks. If you notice any bugs, please let me know. (Added ‘home’, thanks Shawn).

    Looking through the names above, it’s also nice to see some old timers return after long sabbaticals :)

    Finally, if there are things you’d like to see here on smartkit, features added, changes, ways to improve the site, I’d really like to know. Shoot me a line at
