Site+Nederlog: New versions Nederlog 2004-2008
1. Uploaded new versions Nederlog 2004-2008
2. Removed NOTEBOOK and The Black Book
About ME/CFS


Today there was a rather large change on the site and in Nederlog, though probably not one that would or does strike many:

1. Uploaded new versions Nederlog 2004-2008

The Nederlog files of 2004-2008 (inclusive) have been uploaded in better versions: The double titlebar that the files all had has been removed, and the year indexes have been reformatted as regards font sizes and now do look better.

Otherwise, the textual content was not changed at all, except that I found that on the computer that I am working on (using Ubuntu rather than MS Windows) some files have disappeared - between 5 and 10 files in 5 years of Nederlog files. These have been replaced by files with the same name that state that the originals have disappeared.

I may have copies of some of these files, but I am not certain, and it will take time and trouble to find them.

In any case: none of these disappearances happened on purpose, and it probably happened between now and 2009 in one of the various large uploads after switching computers or after switching the formatting of my site.

Here are the links to the year indexes in case you want to do some reading (files from all those years are still quite often read)
but I should add for non-Dutch readers that almost all of the Nederlogs until 2010 are in Dutch.

And presently the Nederlogs for these five years comprise almost 42 MB, including images, of which there were few.

This is about 10% of the site, so in terms of bytes
this is a major update of the site. Textually it is the same as was, but it now looks a bit better, and everything in these directories has been checked in a superficial way, while what there is now available on my sites in these directories is "all new": The old contents have been  totally removed, and the reformatted versions have taken their places.

I did this because I had decided last year that I should try to check out files and
directories, if necessary reformat, and start with the above list of Nederlog directories because these are old parts of my site that could do with some reformatting and checking.

With the eyes and the health I have this was not easy and took quite a while. I'll probably try to do more, such as the rest of Nederlog, to start with, though this seems to be mostly in better shape than what I have replaced today.

2. Removed NOTEBOOK and The Black Book

These directories, with sub-directories in the NOTEBOOK case, were started in September and October of last year. At the time, my eyes were quite sore and quite bad, and this was then the only feasible way to write something for the site, for which reason I then also terminated Nederlog and continued with these, in much darker colors.

Then I found some additional ways to write for the site, and also my eyes got somewhat better, so in November I returned to Nederlog. I think I have now restored to Nederlog all or almost all that I wrote from August - October 2012, and will if I find ommissions, so there is no reason to keep these directories on the site.

In terms of bytes, 4.3 Mb has been removed, but in terms of text all should now be part of Nederlog 2012.

So... this is just a record of some large changes on the site in terms of bytes, but small changes in content, and that only as regards appearance. [1]

[1] One small change I made: I removed from the 2007 directory two zip files with compiled executables for MS Windows that concern Bayesian reasoning. If you really want them, you'll have to mail me.
