A new option for you. But first, a preamble.
Readers, you and I owe a vote of thanks to my good friend Rich Spees, for maintaining this blog and making so many successive improvements. (We also owe my friend Larry Giannou for creating it, so many years ago, before handing off to Rich.)
Rich and I met at The Monroe Institute in July, 1995, where we did Lifeline together. As happens sometimes, he and I didn’t so much become friends as realize we already were friends, and over the years we have maintained one of those enduring and sustaining long-distance friendships that are such a gift in life.
The only thing better than a good friend is a good friend of long standing. The only thing better than that is a good friend of long standing who happens to be a technical wizard. And the only way to top that is for the wizard to be ready and willing and able to come to the aid of the party, time and again.
Rich, unlike me, understands and likes working with software. In fact, for several years now he has worked for WordPress, the company that makes this blog possible. So when i emailed him the other day with a query, he not only said it was possible, he accomplished it in about three and a half nanoseconds. (That’s how it looks to me, anyway.)
And what is this bit of magic he just performed on my behalf and yours? He added an option to let you read the blog entries from first to last, instead of only from last back to first (which is a tedious process).
That improvement came as a result of an email from reader Laurie Tucker, who set about reading the entire blog, and said, “If there is a better way, please let me know!!!” I sent it to Rich, figuring he’d say, “in a pig’s eye,” and instead he in effect said, like the World War II Seabees, “the difficult we do at once, the impossible takes a bit longer.” Not very much longer!
So here’s what you do, if you want to time-travel back to March 2007 and browse from early to late. On the menu line on the first page, under “Frank’s Blog,” click on “Posts in Chronological Order.”
Simple, no? Happy foraging. Laurie, thanks for the suggestion. Rich? Thanks again, one more time. That was a big week, 21 years ago!
