In an effort to extract Google's tentacles from my life, and to give them as little feedstock as possible, I am no longer using my Gmail account as a primary contact address. Contact me at my address instead. Likewise, my address is no longer being hosted by Google.

It was surprisingly time-consuming to find a reasonable alternative host that would support some other functionality (more on that later). After some preliminary attempts, I settled on Namecheap. Believe it or not, I am using a shared hosting plan, which supports another effort I am trying out (more on that in another post).
