This is the "What's New" page for version 1 of my home page. It shows the
development of my pages from their origination in January 1995 up to the point at which I
started converting everything to the new version. All the links go to the original
versions of the relevant pages; use the navigation bar at the bottom of this page to get
back to the version 2 pages.
- August 13, 1995
- Moved older entries in the Guestbook into a separate page, because the original file was
getting too long. Added a field in the Guestbook
Form to find out where people heard about my pages. If you're reading this, please
fill out the form and let me know!

to all the versions of the Guide.

- July 6, 1995
- July 5, 1995
- I have added a page that explains why
my pages look the way they do. This page described some of
the design decisions that went into my pages. I plan to add some
additional material and graphics to this page shortly.

- For those of you in America, happy Independence Day!
- For those of you in France, Quebec, and other French-speaking
parts of the world, I now have a version of the Bare Bones Guide
to HTML translated into French by
- June 22, 1995
- Created a WWW Help Page to answer
some of the questions I frequently get asked by people who read
my Bare Bones Guide to HTML. The new
page offers links to some of the better online sources of
information on how to create Web pages.
- There is now a version of the Bare Bones Guide to HTML in table format, with conversion
courtesy of R. Alan Monroe.
- May, 1995
- Not much activity this month because I got engaged, and
consequently have been dealing with the wonderful world of
- April 30, 1995

- April 24, 1995
- I just returned from a two-week vacation in California, which
explains the lack of recent activity here. As soon as I wade
through my EMail backlog, I'll start adding new materials.
- I've corrected a few minor typos on the home page and the Bare Bones Guide to HTML.
are now quite a few entries in the guestbook, many of which include links
to the signer's home page!
- April 9, 1995
- If you have the time and interest, you can now read my
undergraduate thesis on the
relationship of literature and society in Russia before the
Revolution. It's about 100 pages of text, so it may take a while
- Added background colors to additional pages for those of you
browsing with Netscape Navigator. I don't know that these make
things look better, but they add some visual diversity.
- April 6, 1995
- April 5, 1995
- Reorganized the home page somewhat to group related subjects
- Added HTML versions the Progress and Freedom Foundation's 'Magna
Carta' and the latest issue of Tech Support Tales, two documents
that make fascinating reading for completely different reasons.
- Added some new material to my stream of
consciousness thoughts, mostly notes from the mind-expanding
Evidence Law class I took last year in law school and some
excerpts from my journal.
- April 3, 1995
- Added a Guestbook page with
the comments that people have left. You can add to it by
sending me feedback.
- Redid the navigation buttons, because I didn't like the
way they looked.
- April 2, 1995
- March 31, 1995
- Did some fairly significant reorganization and cleanup
of the main home page. I'm still working to make it look decent
on the Mosaic browser (as opposed to Netscape).
- Added my resume, and a page of
thoughts about what makes a good home
- Revised the Bare Bones Guide to HTML after getting
suggestions from some folks. Added links so you can get the original and shorter versions from my page. Next step
is to do an HTML version.
- March 30, 1995
- Added this "what's new" page to keep track of changes.
- Started the Stream of
Consciousness Page, a sort of virtual diary, to which I will
add random thoughts as they come to me.

HTML on USENET. A link to my home page will be added soon.
- March 28, 1995
- March 27, 1995
- Added a Help Page to describe
the functions of all the buttons. Somewhat unnecessary at this
point, but it may become more useful later, especially if I
change to iconic buttons.
- March 22, 1995
- Added the Map Page to give an
overview of the various pages I have linked together.
- March, 1995
- Added button bar to aid
navigation. Although you may not find the buttons to be useful,
I think it's important to think about user interface when
designing Web pages. Too many pages have great material but are
hard to find your way around in. Some thoughtful comments on
this subject can be found in Jorn's pages
on HTML style.
- Redesigned the pages to take advantage of new tags
introduced in the Netcape
1.1b browser, such as backgrounds and tables.
- Added a feedback page with
fill-out forms. My service provider,
Digex, currently allows only for simple forms that Email the
results to me, but it's far better than nothing!
- February, 1995
- First version of "The -k- Page" goes up on the
WWW server at
Digex. The page is now accessible to anyone on the Net, although
I haven't advertised it anywhere so it's unlikely that any
strangers have seen it.
- Added several new pages, including my favorite things, my hotlist, and my biographical info.
- January, 1995
- Created my very first Web page: The Whirrled
Page. Not much here as of yet, but much more will be forthcoming
as the Whirrled project I am working on with my brother
