Preserving this site if you like it

This site was started as, and probably will remain as, a retirement hobby. That means that at any time, all updates could stop forever. Shortly after that, the site would go down forever as the hosting fee stopped being paid. A sad reality, but a fate that awaits us all.

So, to cover the case where someone might possibly find this site useful, I periodically zip it all up and put the whole site, in one compressed file, on the site itself. There should be a link below. Right-click that file and download it into a folder of your choice. This is an important point. Put it in a folder, because when you unpack it you will not get a folder out of the zip file. You should get a file called "index.html" and a folder called "pages." Open "index.html" with a web browser to view the site as it would be on the internet.

A note about a backup site

This site originally was hosted on a free (as in beer) hosting organization, Then, when it became clear that there would be enough content to make it worth the effort, it was copied to a place where, for a small fee, it could have its own name. So now, updates are posted to both places and the two sites should be identical. Posting is done with REBOL scripts, so it is no more work to post to two places than to one.

Here are the two locations, the "official" one with its own name and the free one which now functions as a backup.
