Hello,

For some time now I've wanted to put together a chronological index of postings so here it is. Well, its a list right now, I hope to add the hyperlinks soon. Once the links are in, I leave a link to it on the front page.

Since you've found it, deliberately buried back where I've hidden week old posts, here is a suggestion of how to make it useful now. To find a post quickly, copy the title of the listing into the search box on the lnnupper left of the page and that should bring you to the listing you want pretty directly.

Otherwise, you can use the post date to find it in my archives.
