What Was New (in 2005):

Changes to this site (mostly additions), the most recent listed first

If you're looking for what's new THIS YEAR
you're not on the right page: this is the one you want.

Minor changes, added photographs, corrections of broken links, etc. are not recorded, nor work in progress on unannounced sites.

Pages in Spanish will be reported here for now. Otherwise, pages in languages other than English will be reported here only if no English page exists, or if they are a resource in their own right. Italics indicate original material.

Provided you haven't trashed your browser's global history since, the first date shown in red below marks your last visit: at which point you can stop reading. To make this system work,

if this line is not red you can mark your place by clicking on it.

Nothing will happen now — well, the line will turn red — but when you come back to this page, today's date will be marked visited. If the line was already red, I've done it for you. (Yes, there are probably fancy ways of doing this with JAVA or cookies, but this is simple and unintrusive, and it works.)
