Hey, my name is Mike Paul. I’ve tried for years to figure out exactly what the hell I’m supposed to have on this About page. I still haven’t figured it out.
Let’s start here: As I write this, it is 23 August 2021. If today’s date is six months or more past that date, this info is likely outdated. Maybe not.
