I sincerely hope your stay here will be positive, enjoyable and educative, but I cannot guarantee that. In the highly unlikely case that you should find my topics offensive or counter-productive, I suggest you stop reading and go elsewhere.

Contents

Dedoimedo is about education, fun and humor.

If you think I'm wrong, write an article of your own somewhere. Regardless, I will try to refrain from unsubstantiated negative comments or rumors about people and matters at hand.

If and when specific vendors are mentioned, you should note that I have no association with the vendors and their products or their market rivals, and that I'm expressing only my personal experience.
