Site Updates
After losing much of this year to health problems, I'm now working on a major overhaul of my site, so don't be too concerned if some pages vanish for a short time. I also plan to make the site a little more mobile-friendly, although a full-blown mobile version of the site is not probably not to be happening ay time soon.
