how to find things
This is a quick map of the
contents of these pages - alphabetically listed folders in which the site
is divided in my Front Page file menu with a link to the main page in that
folder and/or the main sections and files in it. -
This is a work in progress. There are 1595 (Dec.,
2005) files on
this site so this is just what I see as the main stuff or what I have
gotten to so far.
Updated September 2006, 3-2007, 7-07, 12-29-07 (but lots to do left in making it
easier to get around this site). Some files and subfolders are actually in
other places but listed for your convenience dear reader. - DC
