Some of what I write deserves to be remembered for longer than the seven days I allow for comments. This page lists some of those articles, lists the site feeds, hosts, points at three code projects, and points at some mirrors I created. There is a child page, I/O, which hosts and displays feeds for what I have read and most of what I write.

< a name=”mirrors”>


I have copied some material to my site and offer them as mirrors for the original, sometimes because I knew it was going, sometimes because I though it deserved saving, or because I expect the material to loose  its permalink.
