How this page started:
This was one of those hard knocks things.
First, they have rather small limits on the lengths of updates.
Second, they remove carriage returns, so that bulleted lists become garbled.
Third, There doesn't seem to be a way to edit a post once you get it up there.
Fourth, it's really hard to enter text in there, because they automatically substitute miscellaneous links, while you're typing, and you have to hit "escape" while typing to avoid getting this miscellaneous, unrelated garbage in your post.
So I deleted my post, put a link to this blog on linkedin, and am maintaining this for recent updates. I also have a link to this update page on my website and on my profile at Paul Michael's The Network. I am grateful to this website for allowing me to be verbose and format and reformat my posts.
