What Caity does
Caity aims to become proficient at various activities, such as gardening, arts and crafts, and cookery; and intends to continue exploring the wondrous world of language, both natural and programming. She also hopes to get fit; to this end, she has started running. She runs slowly because she feels it’s important to be able to breathe at the same time.
Who Caity is
Caity used to be a lot of things, but now she’s trying to find her place in the world.
What this site is
This site is a chronicle of Caity’s progress — or lack thereof — in the activities listed above.
Requests to include links
This site is personal to Caity and her experiences of the above activities. Please don’t ask her to add a link to your site, especially if it’s not strictly relevant. Chances are she’s perfectly happy with any links she’s already added, and she’s unlikely to change them or add new ones.
What pandammonium means
Yonks ago, Caity was registering for some website or other and had to think up a username. She chose pandaemonium, but of course it had already gone, as had pandemonium. She had a little think, and came up the spelling pandammonium as a little play on pandas and her first degree subject of chemistry: ammonium (NH4+).
Caity drew the panda eating bamboo as a logo, but neglected to draw in a container of ammonium salts because she didn’t think she could draw such a thing in a way that people would get. That’s not to cast aspersions on people, but on her lack of electronic-artistic talent.
Who the images on this site are by

Your personal data
Caity will not use any personal data you provide, such as email addresses, for nefarious purposes. She will not sell your personal data to third parties, ever. She may use your email address to reply to an email directly from you or to send you an email about a comment you have posted on this site.
This site does not track you across the internet but it does have a couple of third party trackers. Caity wishes there weren’t any and apologises for their presence.
The trackers picked up (and blocked) by the DuckDuckGo web browser on this site pertain to WordPress itself and to Twitter, as shown in below:
This is a WordPress blog; WordPress has built-in code that is used to track visitors for statistical purposes.
The Twitter trackers (probably) come from the use of a third party plug-in (not an official Twitter plug-in) to display Caity’s latest tweets.
