Copyrights and Trademarks

Most of my projects are built using open source software and inspired by things found online from publicly-accessible web sites. Therefore I only lay claim to copyright or trademark on those items I specifically identify as my own. I will make my best effort to give proper attribution to copyright and trademark holders when I can reasonably determine them. Wherever reasonably possible I will also identify project sources how I found them. I cannot perform an exhaustive searches for the provenance of every project or idea, but if you find something on this site that is yours, then please let me know and I’ll be glad to discuss proper attribution.

Terms and Conditions of Use

Welcome to this site. I hope you enjoy its content and I welcome your feedback. Here’s the terms I ask of you:

  • Constructive feedback is welcome. I created this site as a journal of my learning experience and through it I readily admit I don’t know everything nor do I claim to. I hope you’ll share what you know with me and anyone who reads this site.
  • Stay on topic, which is makers and artwork. This is not the place for political or religious discourse. I respect everyone’s right to have those discussions and encourage you to do so, just not here.
  • Be kind. If you don’t know what that means, then think of it in these terms: Don’t be a dick.

Advertising and Tracking

Yes, there are advertisements on this site. I hope to generate enough money to cover server costs and perhaps buy some new equipment. Please click on the links if you are interested. That said, it follows that I’m using page analytics software to track user activity on the site, including the use of cookies. Therefore, I’d appreciate it if you would allow cookies from this site.
