Copyright and Site Stuff...

I had a relatively polite email exchange with Josh Bancroft over at the TinyScreenfuls blog about a post of mine I saw in his public link blog - he had copied the entire text and image, and I had asked him to use just a fair-use snippet instead, which he did... but not before unsubscribing to all my blogs. Doh! I guess it wasn't as polite as I thought.

One thing he mentioned was that I didn't have a terms of use on my new blog, which is true - I had forgotten to move over the one I had on my old blog. I just copied it to the about page and just so it's clear, I'll put it here as well.
