I give up. Too many of my peers and friends have been kicked off this site or have simply left in disgust -- it's not much fun to be here anymore, and the level of expertise has decreased in most of the areas I frequent. Talking to the management about the problems has proved to be a waste of time...
So, I spend very little time on this site anymore; I just earn my 3,000 poinks so I can ask questions when I need to. When I am around and answering questions, I'll still provide the best help I can.

I am available for commercial projects, though I may not always have time. If I do not, I can refer you to equally (if not better) qualified developers.
