All the time ... but like I say, the silver lining to being disabled is you have LOTs of free time :) ...

of course my typeing is dying so I have to pack int for the day ... heck i bet i wount be able to wold good either ..

oh, look at the small sample lecture notes i put up, if it is worth the time I will do the other 40 some odd as time permits...

Excellent, Paul. The only criticism I have is that they are indeed lecture notes and would, I am sure, benefit greatly by being delivered live by you. ;)

If you can scan them, go for it. If not, and you have to type them by hand, see how much interest there is in these samples first. 40 is a lot of work.

It's great to see someone contributing so much to the DC community. Many thanks to you, Paul and keep up the good work.

Be lucky,

Neil

Paul, I'd like to thank you

Paul,
I'd like to thank you for spending so much time helping the rest of us get a better grip on how things work. Your site has been invaluable to me.

There are two secrets to life: 1) Don't tell everything you know...

Yes, well, true ... I made them so students would not have to take FULL notes, but could concentrate on what I was saying and not on writing it down. They could make margin notes on other things I would say though.

That has been the reason it has taken so long ... Apples' new Pages program exports in PDF so, I can, and have, read them in from the origianl Microsoft word format, then exported in PDF.

Well, seeing the numbers on my page counters going up tells me that I am getting SOME traffic :) so, all to the good ...

Ok, well, I will see if I can squeexe in the time to do more of them ...

Later I can try to do the export to HTML and THEN see if I can "flesh" out the content. I may do that instead, then I can track the pages that get the most traffic and prioitize my efforts ...
