Here’s a summary of activity for the week ending April 29th, 2018.
Accidentally skipped posting a summary for last week. Also, getting Bob Black‘s material onto the site is taking way longer than I thought. It’s pretty amazing how well footnoted the first piece I started working on is, but, wow, it takes time to format those and link books and resources mentioned in them!
Lots of new pages and work on old pages on the site, which is pretty much every week, really. You can always check the front page of the site which shows the most recent changes and new pages, or check out the Recent Changes special page for a full list.
