Update 4/21/09: My hosting company,
Verio, silently deleted the catchall-mailbox feature from my service,
bouncing all of my incoming email for several hours today. I'll be
moving elsewhere as soon as I can, but in the meantime, if you sent
something to me and it bounced, try again.
Note: This site hasn't been updated
in forever, and won't be until I finally get around to moving it onto
my co-located server at ViaNet. Meanwhile, I'm blogging at dotclue.org. And I no longer

aboard with the traditional old-fashioned Internet greeting, "thank
you for volunteering".
