If you message me on any of the following, and I don't reply, please don't assume I received it.

I'm Occasionally Asked For My Comments (but not in the way you think ;-) )

Please feel free to use my pro-forma comments, most of which are derived from the defaults or the ones shared here rather than being written from scratch by me (some are even identical):

  • Import/access them in plaintext or jsonp (last updated 2 July 2013).

I do not claim original authorship of them, but if any of them turn out to be wrong or not very good, that is possibly my fault. :-)

@RaedMousa As the mouse and wireless issues are probably separate, I recommend making this question about just one, and starting a new question for the other (search first of course, if you haven't already).
