I'd like to thank you for visiting this website. Please know that my intention in collecting or using any data associated with your use of the site is not to violate your privacy. I use website analytics to learn how I can improve the website. I used to host ads because I wanted to make some money from the website (mostly to justify to my wife that all the time I spend on it is worthwhile), but I finally got rid of them because I got tired of feeling like a salesman for products and services that I really knew nothing about. I welcome your comments, questions, and interactions, and I hope that this website has been useful to you in some way.
