More Wittgenstein + updated directories

I keep being not very well, getting not enough sleep because I have too much pain, and having too much pain to get enough sleep - an old story, but not a pleasant one.

So there's again not much in the way of Nederlog today, and in fact today's Nederlog is mostly about updates, and embodies an experiment.

1. Wittgenstein

I picked up last year on where I had left my edition and commenting of Wittgenstein's Tractatus some five years earlier, I think, which again was a version of my comments that date back to the early 1970ies, in fact, and still have not been finished,

Here is a link to the first of a series of files in November 2010

And here is the link to a brief continuation of that effort in 2011, in February of this year:

Today I saw that I had not uploaded rather a lot I had added somewhere in April of this year.

It still is not done; it still needs proof reading and corrections, but it is again a little progress. You'll find it here, starting with Bertrand Russell's introduction, with my comments:

2. Directories

There is a file called "Directories" on some places on my site, also called

on the opening page, that lists the main directories and sub- directories of the site, and is probably the briefest clear overview of what's on it. This is a lot, and I have a little updated it.

3. Peirce

I gave a html-edition of Peirce's "A theory of probable inference", also with a long note by Peirce on his logic of relations, on September 1, last.

This I have now copied to my philosophy-section, in a new section:

So far, it's just the Nederlog I mentioned, which needs some reviewing, so as to fit into its new place.

4. Formatting

Today I used a bit of css in Nederlog that keeps the text centered and justified. I like the centering and I like a view of written text on a computer's screen that's like a book page in not containing very long rows of text, but I don't know yet whether I like the justification (that makes the text's left and right start and end along the same straight lines, apparently, at the cost of inserting empty spaces to achieve that effect).


P.S. Corrections, if any are necessary, have to be made later.

As to ME/CFS (that I prefer to call ME):
