This page is a temporary gatherum of links to the various items I have posted on the Web over the years, placed here so you can find the articles while I figure out how best to organize and present them. Most of these items were written and formatted a long time ago, and I intend to update them to the general look of this site as I find time. In the meantime, well, it's kind of a motley crew.
