2019-10-17: I'm taking a vacation of unknown length from the SE network due to the recent Monica/CoC controversy. If I don't react to pings, don't worry, it's not you! I'm just not here any more.
If it matters: I'm a historian specializing in ancient and modern European history. Really. I'm just posing as someone who knows stuff about computers. Any day now I'll be found out.
And just so you know, my kids really are cuter than yours.
