    Look under preferences and you can choose left or right handed.

    As IBaddersI said, there is an option under the preferences menu (in the sidebar, on the right) to choose your handedness.

    By default, this option is set to "right-hander".

    Occasionally I mess this up and forget to code the left/right "magic" properly into a page. ;) Let me know if you spot any errors.

    Soon, I promise. :)

    I'm sorry for the delay. I've had a lot going on, and this latest article -- singles tactics -- is quite a monster! Still, I'm excited about some of the content; I think it's deeper than any guide I've seen elsewhere.


    **EDIT**

    My god, I can't believe it's been over a month since I published the last article. :eek:

    I was trying to publish one a week, but that's proving to be harder than I thought, especially with all the development work I need to do. :(

    Yes and no.

    Yes, it prompted me to check the date (although I would have done that soon anyway).

    No, I was already unhappy. I am my own worst critic. ;)

    Anyway, the writing is going well today. :)

    Gollum,

    Do not rush yourself. :)
    Your Bible, while perhaps not divine, is manna for this duffer. There is no sense in rushing out an article inferior to the previous carefully crafted ones. Based on your excellent work so far, your credo should be the same as a brewery here: "Slowly.Carefully. Taking the time to do it right".

    Oh, I'm not rushing. I've been taking the time to think seriously about singles tactics.

    The perfect is the enemy of the good, and vice-versa. There's a balance to be struck; that's why I decided to adopt a multi-stage publishing process, and begin each article in "early draft" form (see article levels).

    Thanks for the encouragement. :)
