Another Year Ends. I want to thank my readers and sponsor for hanging in during the tough times.

(And a big thanks to Apple for screwing me over a disabled acct. 100+ security fixes on their servers this year alone, yet they deny legit customers a chance to prove their ID in person. When I get back on my feet I plan on getting legal help on that one as well as filing complaints with my state's and California's Consumer Affairs and AG. Sadly that seems to be the only thing Apple responds to in cases like this after a hacker made a fool out of them earlier this year. Now legit users are paying the price for that.)
