Although the content of truthalyzer.com is as up-to-date as I can make it, the computer and software I use to compose first drafts of my posts could not be more retro. (Click here for an explanation of why I use a vintage 1984 IBM Portable and a text editor from long-defunct Central Point Software rather than contemporary products like Apple’s iPad running the Pages app.)
My thanks to Matt Mullenweg and his teammates at WordPress for their blogging software, and to Arun Kale, who created The Morning After magazine-style theme — the essential tools used to craft and present truthalyzer.com.
But enough about my tools. The primary reason for the Credits page is to give proper recognition to the sources of the photos that appear on truthalyzer.com.
