Current stuff

Background

Over the years I've documented a lot of odds and ends, frequently in my diary. I come to rely on this information, but frequently looking for it looks something like this:

=== grog@wantadilla (/dev/ttypa) ~/public_html 103 -> grep -i ghostscript diary*

diary-sep2003.html:    also showed a weakness of the software I'm using: ghostscript seems unable to maintain
=== grog@wantadilla (/dev/ttypa) ~/public_html 104 ->

Clearly there should be a simpler way, so when things like that happen, I now intend to collect the information in a file in this directory. Much of this documentation is in a “work in progress” status. Here's what I have:
