 What's New . . . Articles

This is "what's new" in terms of stand-alone articles.  It doesn't include the stuff in my blog, go back to my home page for that.  It would be hopeless to constantly catalog blog entries, I let the computer do that.  

The articles listed are everything added since the web site's inception on September 1, 2001, in reverse date order.  (A few articles were written before that time and uploaded with the web site -- some day I'll get around to identifying those.) 

Or, to see a list of articles by article title, click here.  

I started using WordPress for my blog early in 2012.  But if you want you can see my pre-WordPress blog (only entries from 2009 to early January 2012) here.  The WordPress version includes everything, old and new.  The pre-WordPress blog is included just in case someone had hard-coded a direct link.
