INDEX, PAGE 1 OF 4

Dear Friends,

A number of people have contacted me in the past asking for the date of a particular column, since they're not listed by subject. Well, I've finally put together an index of the columns. It's about four pages long, so I'll present it in four sections, starting with the oldest columns first. Also, you'll have to forgive me for formatting strangeness, as the column interface doesn't make it easy to format things perfectly. Here goes:

Index 1: 1/9/01 - 5/15/01

Not that others don't have some good advice, but those cover some ground about readers that I haven't covered in a while.

Summarizing,

Grady
