I've been thinking about your previous remarks and I will think about these new additions. I've been trying to get the minimal floor laid down for what I want to build on it. All these topics are of a piece, various aspects of the same larger project, and I got the impression from all I've read on the the blog, forum, and wiki over the last few years that it ought to fit it with the greater goal of “saving the planet”.
But I'm about to lose my concentration for a day or a few, so I'll have to break for now. I think when I take this up again I'll continue on my Intro page thread — that will put me in a more conversational-narrative mode and the information there will jog my memory as to what I wanted to say.
