Sorry if some of the links in these articles lead to pages that no longer exist. If you have the inclination, leave a comment indicating the links that don’t work and the URL that should replace the old link.


  1. It seems strange that you would think links to your own blog were no longer valid. Nevertheless, I checked them all and they are all fine. What exactly did you have in mind by that last request for someone to check the links?

  2. Dear John,

    That was confusing. It took me a minute to remember what I meant when I wrote that. I've corrected it to read, "Sorry if some of the links in these articles lead to pages that no longer exist."

    Thanks for noticing the problem,
