I really do answer e-mail.
To clarify an earlier post, I have been travelling for most of the last 4-5 weeks, visiting relatives and actually taking a break. While I was gone, so much spam built up on the server it actually overwhelmed the system and a bunch of legit messages got trashed.
I've subscribed to not one, but two very good systems to keep this from happening again. If you e-mailed my public address in November or December and never heard back, please try again. If you e-mail me AGAIN and hear nothing back, it may be that you share a mail server with a serial spammer.
I am not ignoring you. Promise.
