I am honored to be a volunteer editor with the Open Directory Project (ODP) If this information appears anywhere other than the ODP, it is because ODP information is used on other sites; it does not indicate any affiliation with other sites. Note also that I am now an "Editall", so that I can edit anywhere in the directory (except the Kids and Teens area), so that the listing of my name on a category has absolutely nothing to do with whether I edit in a category. Do not contact me about your suggestion to one of "my" categories, although you may contact me about general questions about an existing listing, about ambiguities in an existing category description, or about the category structure in general.

My E-mail accounts are under a number of spam and virus attacks. I think I have the problem resolved, but there are a number of spam traps that messages may be caught in. If you use a relevant subject line ("help!" just won't do), I'll usually see and recover the message from the spam trap. I will not report the status of a specific suggestion in response to a request by E-mail, IM, ICQ, snail-mail, or carrier pigeon. However, I am willing to use the internal search engines to tell you what Google will tell you next week, if your site is actually listed.

I'm presently unemployed, last working for a Fullerton aerospace contractor. (This has absolutely nothing to do with my editing -- just in case someone wants to know if I'm the Arthur Rubin they know.)

Ph.D. in Mathematics from Caltech (1978)

Novell CNE (1995-2000) (I let my license lapse for failure of continuing education requirements, as I'm not using it)

California Income Tax preparer (1990-1997) (ditto)

Computer programmer since 1970.

Usenet user since 1985.

If any tax links from official State or Federal (IRS) sites are missing, I may be able to locate them for you. If any deeplinks to Epinions.com (that you want to keep in the directory) are missing, I should be able to find those, as well.

Note: I am a "member" of Epinions.com and earn money when my reviews are "hit" -- the amount of money may depend on hits of other reviews. I'll be careful in deciding whether to list sites in which I have a direct or indirect interest.
