Some general musing: This site has existed since mid 1997. I'm not sure of the exact date, as I didn't start keeping track of updates until November, but I believe I started the site in May. That's nearly five years ago. I won't deny that updates have been irregular at times. Sometimes that's putting it mildly--consider the gap between June 2000 and March 2001. But I've never forgotten about this site, or stopped reading and replying to e-mails about it.
