Welcome to the Comfort Line
Thank you for logging in to TheComfortLine.com, electronic home of Comfort Theory. There are two versions of my site: an archived site (back up) which is my former site, and my new and improved web site which is organized following the conceptual framework at the bottom of this page. The new site is more complete and more user friendly, except for the FAQ section which I am still working on. So until that section is finished, please look at FAQs in the archived version.
To get started, if you're not familiar with Comfort Theory, click here to view "Comfort Theory 101".
This is an Open Access Site
I am very happy to discuss nuances of Comfort Theory with you via e-mail or even a phone conference. However, most of your questions are already answered in the FAQ and personal sections on both sites. So please read those thoroughly first before writing to me. I have designed my web sites to be “open access” meaning you do NOT need my permission to use anything on the site, including the instruments, diagrams, articles, pictures, or videotapes. You can copy this blanket statement of permission to show your professor if requested.
I am most interested in the work you are doing to advance Comfort Theory, and would be delighted if I could post your resulting articles on my site. Please make sure you cite my work correctly in anything that you present or publish.
For problems with this website, like a broken link, please contact my web master, Paul, (email at very bottom of page). Please give requests for a "fix" by describing the topic and paragraph that needs attention. Thank you!
