Introduction:

Today you get only my links without text.

The reason is that the original file, that was quite good and quite large - 45 Kb - and also almost done, disappeared in thin air after it was renamed, not by me, NL130817a.

Or that is what I think. (The hypertext editor I am using is known to be quite buggy, but there is no decent alternative on Linux.)

Anyway... you get the sources, and may try to imagine my comments, if you want.

I'm sorry, for it was a lot of work and it was reasonably good. But it is better than nothing at all.

Note
[1] Here it is necessary to insist, with Aristotle, that the governors do not rule, or at least, should not rule: The laws rule, and the government, if good, is part of its executive power. Here I quote Aristotle from my More on stupidity, the rule of law, and Glenn Greenwald:
It is more proper that law should govern than any one of the citizens: upon the same principle, if it is advantageous to place the supreme power in some particular persons, they should be appointed to be only guardians, and the servants of the laws.
(And I note the whole file I quote from is quite pertinent.)

About ME/CFS (that I prefer to call M.E.: The "/CFS" is added to facilitate search machines) which is a disease I have since 1.1.1979:
