Essays 2020 onwards

DJS June 2009

I decided, in late 2021, that the collection titled Essays since China had become cumbersome, so I have separated out those from the pandemic onwards. Hopefully that makes the drop-down menus slightly easier to navigate. However, for those who find the menus awkward to use—which includes myself when on a small screen—I have tried to provide alternative routes, such as the Overview in the sidebar. When searching essays, one such route, also in the sidebar, is to click on the year number in the so-called Essay Count, such as 2019. Similarly, in the Maths section, 'It's the Count' takes you to the sub-sections of Maths, though you could also go via Overview. As I said, several possible routes, so you can find whatever works for you. Also, if you're hunting for a particular piece, let's say me writing about solar panels, then yet another route is to type into your search engine something very like this: solar panels  which will show you the pages within which that phrase appears.  Nine of them at the time of writing this.

Obviously, the pandemic affects this collection and I've used it as a separator by calling it a defining change. To reflect this somewhat, when writing about the pandemic I've used the same image in the photo image collection within each period, visible below as image signifying the second half of 2021. I have done the same for the series Snippets series, and here I've experimented with turning these into further sub-collections of shorter pages, as the snippets began to exceed what I thought of as a reader's toleration length. Also, I want sometimes to be able to point to such a section and it seems sensible to make that a different page, albeit it shorter than my typical essay. So, in my head, they're not essays as much as memoranda, so they belong within the snippet collection. I'm wondering whether to number them, so that 348 - June Snippets, with three memos, would have these numbered 348.1-3.

A snippet image, which will often break down into sub-pages. These are relatively easy to miss, so I've added links on the 'cover' page, each time.


 A covid image, indicating one of the long series of pages about the progresss of the pandemic. I've often linked these together so it shoud be fairly easy to swap between and see how the situation changed historically.
