Linux Red Face

Rebuilding my hard disks destroyed by LINUX (!), I was horrified to find a
small typo in the HTML of my homepage which blocked direct access to the
"List of Works" (though access through "Subject Matter' did work)!

I'm so embarrassed, I dare not stand on a street corner, lest drivers
screech to halt, taking me for a stop signal, whereupon the desert
surrounding this outpost would resound with Arabic curses...

I have now rewritten the faulty HTMLs and uploaded them; I also
back-downloaded them to make sure everything is there (it is) and works (it
does), since the Internet in this part of the world is much taken up with
its 'temporary difficulties' (now in their second consecutive year).

These new works are now posted on
