You are likely to be here for one of several reasons:
- you clicked my e-mail link and came here instead
- you are lost
- you were curious and somehow managed to find this page
- this page was indexed on Google or Yahoo for some weird reason
If you got here by mistake, all I can do is say I'm sorry. The links at the bottom will take you to several of the other pages on this site. You may or may not find anything of interest.

If you got here from a search, I hope you found what you wanted. Most likely, you wanted to know how to foil spam bots from harvesting your e-mail address. I hope my explanation was helpful.
