For anyone who considers looking for my email address and emailing me about his programming problem like this guy:

I just came across your profile on Stackoverflow. I hope this isn't
too intrusive but I desperately need some help with Python.
I'm new to programming and I'm currently trying to tackle two very
basic questions which I'm seriously struggling with.

NO, I will NOT help you in private. The fact that my website is not a programming site or personal technical blog should be reason enough for you not to use its contact form (or an email listed there) to contact me.

Sockpuppets on Stack Overflow. Until he finds out that we catch them even with all the nice proxy trickery... ;)

comment Clear 301-redirect cache in Firefox
I know that. But sometimes you forget to change that or your framework uses one (for example, Flask does so when redirecting from /foo to /foo/)

comment SSH Tunnel doesn't work in China
Why would he want to do that? That'll just make everything REALLY slow. And he probably doesn't need the anonymity, just a way to get around the chinawall.

comment Ctrl+Shift+F not working in PuTTY when using a modified keyboard layout on Win 7
@PiotrDobrogost: It's not a putty issue and it only happens with a custom layout which is true. If you know a way to fix it while using a custom keyboard layout I'll be happy to accept your answer though.

Reinstalling the graphics driver also works. Too bad catalyst doesn't have a "restart driver" option (which would be sufficient).

comment Permissions dilemma - Private key requires 600 for terminal SSH, more open for PHP
I guess he wants to retrieve a file via ssh/scp and PHP has some way to specify a private key to use for this. Anyway, I agree that this is a horrible idea.
