1. Statements of Fact.
Parties who have, or claim to have, knowledge related to statements of fact that are made on this website are invited to offer comments, corrections, or clarifications.
This site uses standard httpd logs as well as JS code to collect information of most of the types that a web browser typically broadcasts.
As of this writing, this site goes further and “gathers information”, a term used in the 2012 to 2013 gag-order cases, outside such contexts for legitimate and reasonable purposes that are protected under U.S. laws.
To review a list of representative legitimate and reasonable purposes, click here.
This site reserves the right to make use of information collected for any purpose that is permitted under U.S. State and Federal laws. The right may be exercised to the maximum extent possible without further notice.
This site can, and probably will, blog, paraphrase, post, publish, quote, disclose, “discuss”, distribute, and/or otherwise process and/or disseminate information that is collected.
The word “discuss” is quoted in the preceding paragraph as a reminder to those who were involved in the gag-order cases of where things stand.
To clarify the point:
In gag-order cases that ran from 2012 to 2013, a wife-beater named Jim Kiraly sought to force me to sign a gag order in which I'd agree to go to jail if I were ever to “discuss” him.
We'll be “discussing” Jim Kiraly, Tom Kiraly, Michael Bonetto, Maggie Desmond, John Perrott, and others for years to come.
3. COPPA Notice.
To the best of the primary administrator's knowledge, COPPA,
a law which limits the use of children's information in commercial
or similar contexts, doesn't apply to this site.

OldCoder has an IRC bouncer. However, if he isn't present, don't assume that queries will necessarily be received.
5. Downloading the site.
It's been the policy of Haggis Hell to make copies of the site available to interested parties.
However, the site has probably grown too large for distribution by direct download to work. The ZIP-file snapshot that was provided previously is offline while we review the issue.
One option might be to distribute the ZIP file by BitTorrent.
6. Site technical notes.
6a. This site uses responsive code. This means that it's supposed to work on your phone.
6b. https, i.e., SSL, support is provided by Let's Encrypt.
6c. The original content on this site may ultimately be released under Creative Commons.
6d. This site is hand-written HTML5 and CSS3 plus a bit of JS and Bootstrap. Just like Grandmother used to bake it.
More about the theme:
The theme is largely OldCoder's own design. The goals are: simple, responsive, and practical. Like OldCoder :P
The responsive tables are based on a nice trick documented by Chris Coyier in a 2011 CSS Tricks article.
OldCoder's version of the tables code adds support for multiple tables with different structures on the same page. Transitions are also smoother in general.
