This blog is a personal blog written and edited by me. For questions about this blog, please contact Robert MacLean (that's me)

This blog does not accept any form of cash advertising, sponsorship, or paid topic insertions. However, we will and do accept and keep free products, services, travel, event tickets, and other forms of compensation (stuff) from individuals, companies and organisations.

Any compensation received will never influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog.

The owner of this blog is not compensated to provide opinion on products, services, websites and various other topics. The views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the blog owners. If we claim or appear to be experts on a certain topic or product or service area, we will only endorse products or services that we believe, based on our expertise, are worthy of such endorsement. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation about a product or service should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.

Advertising is provided by Developer Media and they were picked because they focus their adverts at the same target audience, software developers. None of the adverts are picked or controlled by the website or Robert MacLean and no advert on the website should represent an endorsement by it appearing here. If you feel an advert is inappropriate or a page should not contain adverts due to a potential conflict of interest, please let me know.

This blog does not contain any content which might present a conflict of interest, however for full disclosure Robert is employed by Microsoft South Africa, through a labor broking agreement with Manpower. Robert does not own shares in either company (or any company) and I get paid to write code, not to sell anything.
