"Nothing lasts forever in this world where
one season changes into another." (Genji -- Murasaki Shikibu)
 
Items with yellow background indicate added or changed content. Items with orange background tend to be more "technical", improving the structure of the site, but not necessarily significantly affecting end-user content. Grayed out items are defunct. I started this log on 7 July 1997; prior changes are not included. (This web site was established ca. 01 Dec 1996.)
