Privacy Policy

Who we are

Our website address is:

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We survive on advertising revenues. To get some, we sell products from Amazon and allow Google Ads to appear.

In return, we don’t get famous or rich. But it offsets a portion of the cost of this site being here.

We comply with the GDPR and California Privacy Act rules.

Our cookie disclosure provides for cookie/tracking control.


All comments submitted become property of us. No arguing over idea ownership that way. (If you have a billion dollar idea, get legal advice, and don’t go shooting your mouth off about it here!)

When visitors 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.

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 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.

We accept Copyright and never intentionally infringe. Our graphics and media are our own creations. I mean, can’tch tell?

Contact forms

If you contact us via a form, that data might be saved (we have no idea where). A direct email to is the better route.


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 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. Don’t whine to us about the conduct of others.

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 use Google Analytics which tells us if its an “us” or just “me” using this site.

Who we share your data with

Um…Google, Amazon, uh…and the folks up in Provo?

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, 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.

Beyond this, we could care. And yes, all comments are human-reviewed for content. (We hate lawyers and are pretty careful not to act in unkind, untruthful, or misleading ways…

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You need to tell us how to do this, however, since this is all lawyer boilerplate and we have no idea what this refers to. Oh, we do charge a modest service fee (besides needing instruction): $50 an hour. Time is money…which regulators seem to forget.

You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. (We do this kind of thing often, though accidentally.

This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. Which, so far as we know don’t exist, but like we said, this is lawyerly gibberish so who knows.

Where we send your data

Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service. (Why this is needed if way the hell beyond us. We also send your comments through a CPU and out to a SSD, if that freaking matters.

Amazon? yes!

Google? yes!

Might it somehow tangentially trigger a call in our GDPR software? WTFK’s?

Your contact information

(God, this is repetitive, repetitive, ain’t it, ain’t it?)

(He’s an old geezer (and a bit of an asshole sometimes) but go easy on him. He’s a relic from a free world…you know, the one before this.

Additional information

Visit any library.

How we protect your data

We don’t collect it. We like the Swiss-banking approach. You be a series of numbers or a hash-code and just send a commission if you buy things from Amazon.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Let’s see: Since we don’t place the cookies (they come from third-parties) and since we have no idea how all this major works?

A vacation, bankruptcy or dying of old age are all our outs, if you really wanna know. Or, shut down the website. We have and hold nothing of any value except a razor sharp mind and a biting wit….

What third parties we receive data from

(Who were the second parties? WTF, lawyers missed another one, didn’t they?)

We don’t except for Google Analytics. But that’s reported as a “big raw number” and is not personally identifiable, so we have no idea what anyone would worry about.

What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data

Didn’t we mention Google Analytics?

OK, listen closely:

Google Analytics you moron!

Industry regulatory disclosure requirements

(We don’t know what this means but it sure sounds important. Let’s make something up, shall we?)

In accordance with purveyors of economic revolution (the industry) we hold that no one should use Molotov Cocktails or actual physical means of making change.

Voting is fine (though pointless).

We think Resilience of Serfs is a better way.

Take away “the Man’s” precious money sources and grow our own food? When we don’t share, “the Man” will come to its senses.

Or, not.

We’re just trying to work less, for more, and in cooperation with loving humans.
