Notes

Feedback to entity(AT)danny.id.au.

I have separate pages for news sources, blogs, static personal sites, and book review sites & sources.

You can support this blog by buying books through Amazon.

I have a policy of not linking to pages that require subscription or any kind of registration. I also try not to link to pages that have popups or excessive advertising, but my web browser blocks most of that for me, so I may not realise there's a problem. Please let me know of anything really objectionable.

The format of this blog is based on that of Robot Wisdom - why reinvent the wheel?
