This website is maintained for my enjoyment—yours, too, if you so desire. My thoughts are my own (sometimes those of others, but mostly my own), and do not constitute any implied agreement between me and you for any reason. You probably will not agree with a lot of what I have to say, but each to their own.

Terms of Use

Browse around and enjoy what you read and see. If, for any reason, your equipment or software malfunctions while you are here, then the problem is yours, and yours alone, to rectify. I do not pretend to think I may know what causes your equipment or software failure, so I cannot fix it for you.

This site is being utilized for lawful purposes only and your visit here shall be for the same.

With your visit to Fractured Thoughts of a Wandering Fool, you agree to hold harmless this website, the webmaster, and any other individuals I can think of, to include myself, from any claims arising out of your misuse of the information contained herein. In short, you are on your own.

You may, or may not, find links to other websites within these pages. I do not in any way endorse, nor am I responsible for, the content on the pages of those other websites. Some of that stuff is good. I might endorse that, but don’t count on it. These links are only placed here for your convenience and enjoyment, and, maybe, some monetary gain by yours truly.

To report any violations of the above please email your concerns to someone who might be able to do something about it. I’m not sure who that might be, but you can probably figure it out on your own.

The information contained herein does not reflect the opinions or endorsement of current or past employers.

Privacy Policy

Okay. I have a question here, “What makes you think you have any privacy?” Think about that for a minute and then think about it again. With the advent of all this technology that is around us everywhere, our privacy has gone out the window. George Orwell was pretty damned close with what he wrote. He was just 50 years before his time. He got it right, but he was off on the year this was all going to happen. He also got it wrong with who was going to do it to us, too. It seems we’ve done it to ourselves. We don’t need Big Brother to watch after us. We have each other. But, when you put pen to paper during the late 1940’s I guess you have the right to miss your guess by a decade or two. If you haven’t read the book—pick it up and see if Mr. Orwell wasn’t a pretty good prognosticator—“1984”—ask for it at your favorite bookstore or local library.

Information Protection

I’ll protect any information you wish to share with me. In short, I can keep a secret. I’ve been doing it for years. I just expect you to do the same. But, you can share with anyone you like this website and anything you read here. However, if the authorities come knocking on your door, you’ve never heard of me.

How Information is Used

Don’t worry, I won’t blackmail you if you care to share your secrets. That is, unless you plan on committing a major crime. Then all bets are off.

Children’s Privacy

This website is not directed towards children under the age of 13. I will not tolerate any sort of child endangerment or abuse, either. If you are guilty of this, then this is when I will share your information with everyone I can (see above).

Links To Other Sites

You may, or may not, find links to other sites throughout these pages. I just want to let you know that once you go to another site you are bound by their privacy policy and not mine. Link away, but be forewarned.


I like cookies of all kinds, especially chocolate chip. I don’t care much for those little pieces of computer code they call cookies that attach to your computer, so that some organization out there can track where you’ve surfed and what you are up to. That just gives cookies a bad name. If you would like more information on that type of cookie dough, then surf on over to the Tor Project, or take a look at Ghostery, or some such web detective program. Google is bad about tracking you and what you are doing. Think about DuckDuckGo as your search engine.

Retention of Information

I have a severe case of CRS syndrome so there is nothing to worry about here. I have trouble remembering to get dressed in the morning, so me remembering much of anything about you is way too much to expect. Unless, of course, you put it in an email and then all bets are off (think General Petraeus here).

About This Blog

This is a continuing work in progress. It is the ramblings of a wondering fool with too much to say and not enough time to say it. Or, maybe too much time to get said what needs to be said at that particular time. Well, anyway you consider it, this blog is about what I have to say, when I want to say it, and not a moment before.
