Secure mail on he.net:

attention to Thunderbird and iOS mail.
Reviews of books that I've read.
Model and Reality:
An online book commenting on the philosophy of science, particularly the relationship
of computers and the mind.
Filk and Other Music:
Filk music is the folk music of science fiction fandom. It is often performed
at science fiction conventions, and several conventions each year are
dedicated exclusively to filk.
Two pun-filled Harry Potter spoofs, "HP and the Programmer's Printer" and "HP
and the Eye of Tripoli," in which Hugh Packard learns the truth behind
his Mundane upbringing, enters Bugwarts School of Computing and Programming, and
faces the threat of Lord Petitmol. "Prolog in Heaven," in which God confers with
his software development team of archangels on the biggest project ever.
The Evil Counsellor's advice list:
The Evil Overlord's advice list is well known, but Evil Counsellors such as
Haman and Wormtongue need advice too.
Dan Schulz, Scott Wirkus, Bob Meyrowitz, and Eyada:
An account of harassment and threats against me over a period of years.
John Kerry's advocacy of involuntary servitude

I'll update this periodically while it remains true. If I don't, it might mean
I've just forgotten to. Or it might mean something else.
(I'm not updating it daily, maybe three or four times a year.)
