I'm @hjs on twitter (yes, that should tell you how long I have been on twitter, but I am not very active there and my handle constantly gets mis-tagged).
And if we know each other socially (clarity test: you'd have me over at your home or vice versa), let's connect on fb.
P.S. This is a personal site and you can tell that it is pretty bare bones and I did not spend *any* time on how to make it pretty.
