Long Time No See

I haven't been able to log in for quite some time, not since Advogato's hard drive filled up and screwed up the database. Raph just reset my password for me.

I'm glad it was an innocent error though, as I discovered my account here had been deleted just minutes after I was booted from Webmasterworld for putting a Creative Commons license on my last post there. Their copyright forum is chiefly concerned with how to use the DMCA to take out websites that copy one's content; my argument that there could be a better way did not meet with an enthusiastic response.

One bit of news is that I am now completely devoted to writing both Free Software and Free Documentation. I'm able to make my living through advertising published with some of my articles. I'm now working to expand that in a copyleft kinda way.

I'll be back soon.
