To all to whom these presents come: Greetings! Herein shall be ramblings of the partially lucid. There is but one caution we must place: Nothing is “official” in any way, shape, or form, and much may be untrue and/or opinion. Enjoy!
With respect to those who would enter their own advertisements in the comments, don’t bother. They are not visible, no, not even to Googlebot; they will mostly be deleted; and every now and then I enjoy modifying them to berate whatever you’re trying to sell and then making them public. Oh, yeah. People who fall in here and read stuff as a rule speak neither Russian, Mandarin nor Cantonese, so if you plan to place ads in those languages in the comments, don’t bother.
