Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

  • Can I put one of your photos/articles/games on my website? - Please email to ask me first, including details of your website.
  • Do you accept guest posts? Sorry, no. I don't have time to work with them.
  • Can you review or help me promote my music? - No, sorry. Try these outlets.
  • Can you tell me more about being a journalist and journalism careers?
  • Can you help me break this story in the national press? (conspiracies, politics, scandals etc)
  • How can I get an Amstrad emulator working on my PC?
  • Can I link to your website? - Yes, but please link to HTML pages (not images, PDFs or other files) and please don't frame this site. Thank you for the link!
  • Will you link to my website? - Unlikely. For the last ten years or so, all the requests I've received have come from businesses looking for promotion and SEO links. Sometimes they have created good content, but I don't have time to promote other businesses in this way. Adding and maintaining links is a time consuming process. That said, if someone contacts me in the spirit of the early Internet with similar interests, I'd be pleased to talk about how we could work together.
  • Where can I buy your books?
  • How else can I support your website? - To be honest, people don't ask this often. But if you found something useful here and would like to return the favour, here are some ideas. Thank you!
  • What is your privacy policy?
  • I can't find a page on your site - Try the search first, but do ask if you're still struggling. I have removed some content I considered to be obsolete, but I can probably send it to you if you are missing it.
  • Can I comment on your blog? - If comments are not currently enabled on the blog, please do email me your feedback. I'll update the post where appropriate.
  • Is your website/domain name for sale? - No.
  • Can you help me with this family tree enquiry? - No, sorry.
  • Are you the CBS chairman, former president of CBS News? - Yes, people do ask this, and no I'm not.
