Andrew's Corner of the Web

This long running web site has always functioned as a place where I could think out loud, a place where I could work through areas of difficulty in my University studies, in my explorations of Linux, in my efforts to live a Yogic style and in many other areas. The site was established in June 2006 and ran continuously until August 2013 when there was a hiatus following the unexpected and tragic death of one of my beloved granddaughters. Restarting in early 2014 site development continued until in early 2019 where with an end of decade birthday approaching a time for reevaluation had arrived. My life had changed and the site no longer reflected my thoughts, it reflected the thoughts and projects of another time. Marie Kondo has the following to say about this:

"To truly cherish the things that are important to you, you must first discard those that have outlived their purpose. To throw away what you no longer need is neither wasteful nor shameful."

And so as Spring comes to the southern hemisphere in 2019 this site has been drastically culled with the remaining pages substantially renovated. Usenet is slowly dying and my slrn pages have been removed including my crazy page for compiling slrn under Windows 10! (Edit: OK so that one crept back in!)I no longer use audio CDs having moved to a Classical Music streaming service so my many pages on abcde have also gone. Many other pages have now also gone and the remaining pages have been rebuilt to reflect the semantically correct structures required by HTML5, although this may be noted only by the cognoscenti. So according to Marie Kondo this leaves only those things that are truly important, and what are they? These things, these pages, Gentle Reader, can be seen below:

Contents of the Site

The following rather abbreviated list represents the pages available on the site at this time, only 4 pages after the big cull of 2019. I have some plans for the site and most definitely a new direction and focus is coming soon. However if there is a page that is missing, one that perhaps you have used for reference, remember the amazing WayBack machine should be able to help you out!
