An Index to Previous Posts

I occasionally refer people to my blog for further information or reference previous posts to support a new topic. To make that easier, I started to put together a little file that was an index to which post discussed what topic.

After starting that, I realized that such a file might be of use to folks reading this blog, so I decided I would make it available including hyperlinks to each of the posts.

That’s the good news.  The bad news is:

  1. I’m still indexing all of the posts.
  2. When CSE closed down for a while and I moved my blog to this new location, one of the things that happened was I lost all of the graphics in the posts that I had put together on the CSE site.  I found that out right after I made the move and have been working to rebuild things.   Its a slow process because I am graphic intensive and there are nearly 150 posts.  But the other thing that I just discovered yesterday is that all of the links to previous posts are broken, including all of the links in my index posts.  So, I have to rebuild them too.

Eventually, you will be able to use the links below and the links in the posts they send connect you with to navigate to the topic of interest.  But for that to work, I have to get everything rebuilt.  Until then, you will at least be able to use the text and brief descriptions to get you into the right general area on the monthly index that shows up on the lower right side of the screen when you link to the blog home page. When you pick one of the months, all of the titles of the posts for that month will show up with a link that will carry you to the full post.

In what follows, each quarterly link will take you to a list of the posts for that quarter, including a brief description of each one and a link to it.  Eventually, the links in those posts will take you directly to the associated topic.  Meanwhile, thanks for your patience.
