I recently found out that the "Email the Author" link at the bottom of my posts has never worked. If you have tried to email me using that link, and I never responded, I do apologize. I never received your email. Of course, if that happened, you probably got mad and never returned to this site, so you're not reading this.
At any rate, the issue is now fixed. If you'd like to email me privately, rather than leaving a comment, please do use the "Email the Author" link at the bottom of my posts. As you may have noticed, I no longer publish my email address, even just in text form, in the "Stuff About Me" section on the sidebar. I'll soon be moving to a new email address and want to avoid hideous amounts of spam attacking the new address, as it did the old (although Yahoo did a good job of getting rid of most of it).
You may now return to your regularly scheduled web browsing. That is all.
