Something different is happening now on this blog. Little by little some of the great information on the original website will be appearing here on the blog, in shorter and more digestible posts. We are summarizing longer articles, or publishing them as a series of shorter posts. Categories and tags will make it easier to find what you’re looking for.
The full-length articles will remain on the original website and all the old posts will still be available on this blog. New posts may even continue to appear from time to time….
