Some visitors report getting an “Error 500,” or only see a blank screen from time to time. While I don’t know what is causing the problem, I do know what to do when it happens. Simply refreshing the page (or hitting F5) will get the page to render.  I apologize for the inconvenience and I’d fix it if I knew how. 🙂

Buy a book and support the site.

While maintaining this website is a labor of love for me, it does cost me money. If you would like to support this effort, please consider buying a copy of my book (proceeds go toward supporting the site), or simply make a donation (below). Either one would be most appreciated.

My book is available on Amazon here.

Thank you, Brian Jeffrey.
