These are personal notes I've taken over the years. They are subject to my mood, personality defects, prejudices and overall ignorance. Nothing you read here should be interpreted as absolute fact, and nothing here represents the opinion or policies of my employer.
While transcribing my notes for the web, I have excised the names of persons of whom I was especially critical (there's been plenty!), and emphasized the names of people I admire. If you were mentioned and prefer not to be, drop me a line and I'll fix it. If your recollection differs from mine, or you think I was particularly harsh in some cases, we can discuss that too.
See, I try to be reasonable.
