Bill Vermillion

There are a number of people I pester now and then about writing for this website ( you know who you are, and where is that article?). With Bill Vermillion, I've done more than pester: I've begged, pleaded, gotten on my virtual knees..

Bill is one of those extremely rare people who have imposing amounts of technical knowledge and are also able to communicate that knowledge to others. In shorter words, he knows his stuff and can explain it, too. I've admired his posts in comp.unix.sco.misc for many years, and have frequently (too frequently, right Bill?) chided him that he should write more. Well, I guess I finally wore him down, because Bill has agreed to submit a series of articles on tapes and tape drives. Bill is very expert in this area, having experience both in audio and data recording.

The very first article is a review of magnetism and electrons, just to be sure everyone is on the same page. I know I'm looking forward to the rest of this series- so if you know any of Bill's clients, tell them to leave Bill alone for a month or so- we need these tape articles!

Many of the products and books I review are things I purchased for my own use. Some were given to me specifically for the purpose of reviewing them. I resell or can earn commissions from the sale of some of these items. Links within these pages may be affiliate links that pay me for referring you to them. That's mostly insignificant amounts of money; whenever it is not I have made my relationship plain. I also may own stock in companies mentioned here. If you have any question, please do feel free to contact me.

I am a Kerio reseller. Articles here related to Kerio products reflect my honest opinion, but I do have an obvious interest in selling those products also.

Specific links that take you to pages that allow you to purchase the item I reviewed are very likely to pay me a commission. Many of the books I review were given to me by the publishers specifically for the purpose of writing a review. These gifts and referral fees do not affect my opinions; I often give bad reviews anyway.
