  • Proofreading on the “Altertech” blog entry.
  • Clarification on the “Defending the Helpless” blog entry.

  • Fixed the dates on this page.
  • Called Evil Alternate Steve, told him about the Fringe Nut Group®. An hour later, they had all disappeared, leaving behind nothing but picket signs and empty Raisenet™ boxes. Guess I didn’t need a better lawyer.

  • Slight modification on the “notes” of the HTML axioms, to increase readability.

8.0 (1/13/06)

  • The largest content update ever.
  • Extensive behind-the-scenes work that should be fairly transparent to the readers. This should help simplify maintenance and make it easier to add pages in the future.
  • An extensive list of undocumented edits. Every single article on the site has been gone over and updated, usually to fix grammatical errors and the like, rather than a wholesale rewriting. Which isn’t to say that a lot of rewriting didn’t happen anyway.
  • Rewrote Wish Magic and…damn! The PDF will blow you away.
  • Added Pages info to Credits. Revised the page, moving the About the Author information there, moving the “Made Mac” logo up, clarified a few entries.

  • Revised, rewrote, clarified, expanded and renamed the Cosmverse, Cosms, and Dimensions article.

  • Removed the Torg Rules section, moved articles to the Torg Blog.
  • Fixed links on the Links page and the Credits page.
  • Added the “updated!” graphic to different sections, to show which articles were updated. Would have added the “new!” but nothing is actually new. For the future, I guess.
  • Added a date updated field in the articles, to show revision dates. With templates, it was a snap. All hail Dreamweaver!
  • Rebuilt the PDF source stationery to avoid a bizarre (no proofing) error in MS Word. While so doing, took the occasion to revise some of the boilerplate.
  • After hours of struggle and several crashes, I abandoned MSWord for Apple’s Pages. This enabled me to add a couple of very nice features to the PDF’s (such as clickable links), add some minor graphics and in general avoid the annoyances of MSWord. Conversion from Word was fast and easy, thanks to Pages built-in .doc importer.
    Instead of a stationery, Pages works with templates. Creating and updating a template for the PDF’s is quick and easy. Unlike Dreamweaver, old documents don’t inherit changes, but nothing’s perfect.
  • Converted all PDF’s to the new format. Again.
  • Built a nested template for articles. Converted current pages over to the new template.
  • Built a nested template for the blog entries. Converted current entries over to the new template.
  • Added indentation (via Dreamweaver templates and CSS). Great idea, but also required a load of editing to implement well.
  • Finished the site review, including spellchecking, proofreading, link validation, and general doublechecking of all content and code.
  • Troubleshot the above.
