You can find me on various social media:

And even the useless ones, though they aren't well maintained:

Why "infamous tms" and "infamous.net"? Because since the early 1990s, my e-mail address has been <my initials>@<various places>; and before Facebook there was this thing called USENET where we used to argue all the time. So several people who met me in person after knowing me via USENET by my e-mail address said something like "Ah, you're the infamous tms."

You can contact me here if you like. (Or send me e-mail if you can figure out my infamous.net address from the information above.)

Thanks for visiting. Be excellent to each other.
