Fall in the sea

I am a computer software engineer/architect, and I may sometimes write about things related to the work that I do. Notwithstanding that, whatever company I'm working for at the time has no connection to this web log or the writing herein, and what I say, no matter the topic, comes from me alone and does not represent the opinions or policies of my employer.
I use comment moderation to avoid comment-spam and nastiness, not to filter opinions. I intend to publish all reasonable comments, whether or not they agree with me. I will not publish any comment that is unduly flaming or that uses foul language, whether or not it agrees with me. You may contact me about an entry by making a comment and telling me that it is a private comment, in which case I will not publish it. If you want a response, include your email address. For privacy reasons I won’t publish a comment that contains someone’s email address.
Unfortunately, because of comment spam I am no longer accepting anonymous comments. You may use a Google account or OpenID with a pseudonym, but you will have to log in to comment. I would rather not do this, but... blame the spammers.
