As of 18 January 2018, www.rickconner.net will be shutting down indefinitely.

Likewise, I will be shutting down my e-mail addresses in the rickconner.net domain, as they have become a source for little more than annoying mainsleaze spam messages.

It has been a great ride, and I have learned a lot — about coding, networking, and graphics, but also about the topics I’ve covered on the site. I’ve gotten lots of kind feedback (both via e-mail and in person) from many of you, and I hope I have been able to answer all the questions I’ve received.

Nevertheless, I find that I no longer have the time required to keep up with the many changes and corrections that need to be made. Since I don't want to clutter up the web with inaccurate, irrelevant, or outdated information, I’ve decided to be a good net camper and pack out my trash.

I will retain this domain name, and there's a possibility that I'll return to it someday when I have more to say and more time to say it in. In the mean time, if you need to see the materials that were here, you may be able to find them at https://web.archive.org/web/*/www.rickconner.net.

Best wishes,
