Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is a bit of a mouthful:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

As a general rule, we do not want your personal information. However, due to how the internet works and the realities of being members of a social species, we may collect some of it. This policy outlines how we deal with this unfortunate situation.


Comments are disallowed and not solicited on this website. If you figure out how to submit a comment, please comment with this fact to alert the website maintainers.

In the event visitors somehow leave comments on the site, we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

Furthermore, an anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.


If you manage to upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Cookies (or, depending on your location, Biscuits)

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.

If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.


We are not entirely certain what, if any, analytics are in use on this web site. Once we figure this out, we will be sure to update this section.

Who we share your data with

This site will share your data with basically anyone who offers money, goods, services, or credible threats. Those offering entities will be listed here. While we don’t want to collect your data, we’re not above sharing it if we somehow get a hold of it.

So far, no takers.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, despite our best efforts to prevent you from doing so, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

You have whatever rights the site maintainers are legally obligated to extend to you in the controlling jurisdiction in which you assert your rights. Unless otherwise specified, the controlling jurisdiction is Austin, Texas, USA.

Where we send your data

If you manage to comment, despite the fact that such comments are unwelcome, those comments may be checked through a third-party, automated spam detection service.

Data breaches, security vulnerabilities, and other sensitive communications

If you believe you have discovered a security vulnerability or similar issue involving this site, please let know about it over normal email. No PGP is required. If you feel the urge to use PGP, please use the key at <>.

Once the issue is triaged and if it is determined to be credible, the site maintainers will endeavor to fix or mitigate the issue in no less than 30 days.

Errors, corrections, and other updates to this policy

This policy almost certainly contains errors or omissions. Once these are discovered, they will be corrected in a timely manner and with all the best intentions. Other changes may be made at any other time, without notice.

By visiting this site, you are agreeing to this policy.
