First, how to post a comment. Some people have had some difficulty in doing so, understandably enough. If you wish to comment, click on the link at the end of the post to which it applies; you will then see a box on your left which tells you how to do it.

If you continue to have difficulty, please let me know by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
