Privacy Policy

Apparently I'm forced to post a privacy policy, so regular readers can feel free to ignore this. 

But know this:  I will never provide your e-mail address or other contact information for any reason.

Third Party Advertiser Cookies and
Web Beacons

This web site participates in Six
Apart Media, a comprehensive advertising program provided by Six Apart Ltd. for
publishers all across the Web. 
This section of our privacy policy describes how Six Apart Ltd. and the
third party advertising networks and advertisers that display advertisements
through Six Apart Media (collectively, "Advertisers") collect, use, store and
disclose data from visitors to this Web site.

A "cookie" is a small amount of
data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your
browser from a Web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard
drive.  Cookies can be used to
target advertisements relevant to your interests, based on your visits to
different Web sites, to provide traffic measurement and other analytics and to
conduct research. 

A "Web beacon" is an electronic
file on a Web page that allows a Web site to count users who have visited that
page, to access certain cookies and to provide auditing, research and reporting
for advertisers. 

When your browser requests a page
that displays advertising from one of the Advertisers, the Advertiser may view,
edit or set its own cookie through your browser.  In addition, the Advertiser may place its own Web beacon in
the page, which may be triggered by your browser's request.

If you would like to contact the Advertisers
to learn more about their privacy policies and what options (if any) they offer
to opt out of their data collection and use, please follow these links to their
