It's Talk Like a Pirate Day, and so I'd like to expresss appreciation
To Sci-Hub, Library Genesis, B-ok.org, and the other services which allow me to access information, current and old, much of it not otherwise available, and which would cost me years of income.
I literally could not research or write as I have without this.
Please support these organisations and efforts if you can. This benefits me directly through their capabilities, archives, and availability....
