Good morning,

Not a medical definition

I have been analyzed as INTP, 5W4 and wet skeptic. Those who know what those mean are likely to either deride or fervently support the first two systems. I do neither but I do not really consider them scientific methods.

It seems that I am among the minority that is interested about these things (and mainly things that have actually existed). I admit that one of the reasons I began to contribute was the fact that some entries elicited a comment equivalent to "What is this?!". So I decided to correct the matter. Another reason is that this is as good an excuse as any to organize my jumbled notes.

However, my daily time online is limited. By necessity, my Wikipedoholic rating is just 37. Therefore, I usually cannot find time to de-orphan the articles I've written. Sometimes I also find it hard to find suitable categories. Those willing to correct my spelling are welcome to do that.

I've also noticed that many of the web pages I used as sources for older articles have disappeared. Mainly the book and magazine article references remain.

And no, I have nothing to do with the aviation insurance company of the same name.
