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.

comment Get rid of the Courier font
Calling people names like that is completely unacceptable here on Stack Overflow. You were probably downvoted because your question is Off-Topic here. Downvoted again and migrated to Superuser.com.

Why the hell are you spying on your relatives?! They obviously don't want you to invade their privacy if they delete histories.

comment Is it possible to trace someone using Google during an online exam?
Horribly solution, I'd rather not be accused of cheating for opening notepad to make well.. notes before submitting an answer. For example, my professor here gave us ugly, unindented XML in an online exam which I had to indent in an editor to make it readable.

Yes. WMV is fine, too. ther I get the same quality - so maybe there is indeed something wrong with the bitrate.

yeah, or wait for this one to be migrated (unless a moderator does it it needs a few people to cast close+migration votes)

Show the code where you bind the socket. Maybe you bind to the wrong ip.
