Try This at Your Own Risk

Sometimes I post about code I’ve used to make things work on websites. I share these posts in the hope that what I’ve learned and done may be helpful. It is offered “as is”, and I do not make any claims that it will work for you for any particular purpose. If you use the code and accompanying commentary I post here, you do so at your own risk. I am not responsible for any damages of any kind that may result to you or anyone else from using this code or the accompanying commentary.

Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. That means that if you purchase something from the people I’ve linked to I get a small commission. I do this only for products I use myself and have found to be of value. What I get isn’t much, but it helps to pay my costs for keeping my site up and running, or occasionally to get a coffee at Jernabi’s down the street. What you get is the opportunity to try products and services I like or have found useful.
