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 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.

Protip: If warez, porn, etc. are hidden behind one of those sites they are usually fake.

comment Securing traffic sent over HTTP, Client side
Right now this is not a question and also completely off-topic here on Super User. However, it might fit on Information Security after some rewording to turn it into a proper question.
