Over the next few days, I will be reorganizing this site to make it easier to find posts on topics.  Here is some of what I will be doing.

  • Putting each post into only one category, or subcategory.
  • I will divide posts into non-news article related posts and news-article related posts.
  • Within those two categories, I will have subcategories.
  • I will use tags more effectively and I will have a tag “cloud” that you can click on to find posts mentioning that particular tag.  I will think of it as an index.

I hope this doesn’t convenience anyone, and if you have comments about the organization, feel free to make them.
