“What do machines really do? They increase the number of things we can do without thinking. Things we do without thinking - there's the real danger.”

This Website

This website looks best running on Mozilla Firefox. It looks worst running in Microsoft Internet Explorer. There are many reasons for this – and they all point to Microsoft. So iff you are still using Internet Explorer I suggest you consider switching now (or at least upgrade to a newer version that has better compatibility to modern web standards. I stronly recommend Firefox, another option isĀ  Opera. I don’t recommend Internet Explorer and I don’t recommend Google’s Chrome (I don’t trust Google when it comes to privacy, so I use as little of their tools as possible).

This website runs on WordPress using an evolving theme I designed & built using the Thematic theme framework. If you are interested, I do also build websites for other people – more on that at oDharma.com.
