Sorry about making you open a mailer window and then transcribe my address by hand (the above is a PNG image, not copy-and-pastable text), but I do not want to get more spam. The spammers run their own automated processes to crawl through web pages and collect e-mail address patterns. This is sometimes called "web scraping".

Some people attempt to fool the spammers' automated searches by obfuscating the HTML mailto: tag and their address through ASCII encoding. However, that is easily circumvented by the spammers' automated web-scraping programs.

FYI, that image was created with ImageMagick:

$ convert -size 280x30 xc:transparent -font Helvetica \
	-pointsize 20 \
	-draw "text 10,20 ''" \
	-fill black address.png  

You may need to change the 280 to a larger number in that command if your e-mail address is longer than mine, to allow it to fit into the image. You will just have to experiment with the value to see what's appropriate for your address.

You may want to make that number smaller if your address is shorter, so your image isn't much bigger than it needs to be.

And, of course, you can change the first 20 to make the text larger or smaller, accompanied by the needed changes in image width and height.
