This blog is now spammed relentlessly, and the Akismet safeguard program the protects this blog occasionally screens out legitimate posts. If yours does not appear, please drop me a note at and we’ll sort it out.

I also do not allow people to advertise themselves, their sites, or their services in the form of a comment. Some clearly don’t belong, and I don’t want to get into making judgments as to which do or don’t, so I disallow them all. If commenters want to recommend someone/something else, that’s fine.
