Questions or comments?  My email address is

Please DO NOT email me technical questions. Here's why:

  1. You're much better off posting your question in an online forum like this one.  That way you'll have many more people helping you and get way more input than just my silly myopic view on things.

  2. Chances are that someone has had your issue in the past and already solved it.
  3. If someone has your issue in the future than it will be searchable on The Internet, unlike anything in an email.
  4. If you do email me a technical question then I'll probably just tell you 1, 2 and 3 above.
