How May the Webmistress Assist You

If you wish to be provided with information regarding upcoming appearances in your area, please let the Webmistress know the scientific topic (or Mad Science) that most interests you and the general appearance vicinity that is convenient for you. She will make note of that and send you a message when the Philosopher will have an appearance that may be of interest to you. Any time you change your mind, simply let her know so that she can delete you from her list for that topic or appearance region.

The Webmistress is also the point of contact for those little things that sometimes break in a website, permission to use or share material found in the site, concerns about Privacy or potential breaches of Site Security. Please note that she will refer Site Security matters to the individual who manages those protocols. Unless you provide specific permission for a direct response, his reply will be forwarded to you by the Webmistress.




The Natural Philosopher and the Webmistress may occasionally reply to your email from their personal email accounts to save time if your query is time sensitive. The original email that received your inquiry will be visibly copied in that reply so you know it went to the correct party. The personal email accounts will be used for replies infrequently.
