About and Privacy Policy

My name is John Struan. I post daily links at, and custom toys at

I welcome tips even if I don't end up using them. Simply email me a short description, url, and/or images. Don't be shy about including your personal url in the email. If you're interested in starting your own blog, then you might find these blogging tips to be useful.

Like just about every other site on the internet, I use various programs such as StatCounter, Site Meter, and FeedBurner, which collect and use the data contained in log files. The information in the log files includes your IP (internet protocol) address, your ISP (internet service provider, such as AT&T), the browser you used to visit my site, the time you visited my site, and which pages you visited throughout my site. Some of these programs may also use cookies to record information such as how often you have visited my site. You can actually see my Site Meter information by clicking on the widget at the bottom of the sidebar.

I also use Google AdSense, which collects additional information about your websurfing habits as described here. You can learn about turning off some of those features here.

Finally, I won't sell your user information to a third party.

Thanks very much for visiting my site.
