      I'm just curious ... is there anyone anywhere in the world that actually reads this "What's New?" page?

      05-15-2007: How interesting ... the above request has been here since Nov. 2005 and not one single person in the entire world has admitted to me that they have looked at this page at any time since then. What is the point of my updating this page at all?
      08-16-2008: Wow, somebody wrote that they actually look at this page regularly. So there's at least one out of several billion people on Earth that do.

Trivia: Web site size: 11-25-1995 (788 K), 01-28-2011 (per FreeFind's count) 1,079 pages, 27,182,416 total bytes.
       Per atomz.com indexing, as of 11-07-2011, this site has over 2.6 million different words.

      I am sorry for the delay in responding to requests for updates to this site. The matter was beyond my control. The source HTML files of all my pages are on a Server where I login, update the pages using their unique VAX VMS EVE/TPU editor, and upload the updates. Without warning, last September 25th, the Server was shut off in preparation of moving it physically from Madison, WI to Boston, MA. However, somebody forgot to check whether the new site was ready to receive it or not. The new site was not ready for the installation until a couple of days ago and a few bugs had to be worked out after it was turned back on. It seems to be stable now so I can finally resume making updates for the first time in almost four months.

.10-05-2009
      Major updates of indexa.shtml and indexq.shtml. I went through each page line by line, making sure every link worked, both internal and external, and every entry was as complete as I could make it, a separate entry for every known member of every group, what known city(ies) they live/lived in, what known instrument(s) they play(ed), every known group each individual has been a member of, and the known "ACTIVE" dates for every group, i.e. when it was founded and disbanded.
      Possibly frustrating to people who link to specific musician's entries, many, MANY anchor tags have been changed. Fourteen years ago, when I started this site, I had no idea that someday I would list over over 8,800 different Wisconsin musicians, and an estimated 15 to 20,000 different, Folk, Bluegrass and World Folk musicians, solo guitarists and harpists, and that each and every one would require a unique anchor tag so that anyone and everyone could link to an artist or group and not have identical anchors to more than one making any link not work properly. I apologize that for a long time I was somewhat sloppy in assigning anchors that would someday conflict with other anchors. I am fixing that now. For example, indexa.shtml#ACU is now indexa.shtml#Acuff,Ry
      The other biggest change of this revision project is that, if an off-site link no longer works, I just delete it. I am making no effort to find new home pages for artists, links that didn't exist the last time I searched. In the long term view, as I turned 68 six days ago, there will come a time when I will not be around to update anything on this site. I am taking steps so that this site will remain on-line for hopefully a long time after I am gone. In that future, the importance of this site will be the information that I have researched, accumulated and installed here which will have long term benefit to my readers. At least that is my hope. To that end, if I foresee that at a given point in the future, I will become physically or mentally unable to continue site maintenance, before I stop, I will remove every off-site link, so that the body of knowledge contained on this site will serve for some time to come after I have to stop maintenance. If my demise is sudden, then the future permanently broken off-site links will have to stand as is, and hopefully will not unnecessarily detract too much from the hoped for continuing usefulness of this site's internal information about musical artists, groups, discographies, bibliographies, venue histories, festival histories, and specific book indexes I have created that exist nowhere else, or at least do not exist together in any one single location, either on-line or in print.
      Work has begun on indexb.shtml. As each page is completed, I will list it here. Understandably this particular clean-up project will take many months. Stay tuned.

      A great big THANK YOU!! to http://www.websitegrader.com/ for evaluating my site and FINALLY telling me exactly how to invalidate the link of those people who I have asked to consistently link to me at "http://www.folklib.net/", and NOT "http://folklib.net/", but who have refused to change their link. Because of the resulting confusion to Search Engines, an indexing problem called "link fragmentation" occurs. Search Engines, like Google, think they are two different sites instead of the same site. Website Grader considers it an ERROR if they find indexed links to otherwise identical URL's both with and without the "www." They pointed out that this error can be corrected by installing what they call a "permanent 301 redirect". I have just done so, and everyone who clicks on what I personally feel is an incorrectly installed link, "http://folklib.net/", will now be automatically redirected to "http://www.folklib.net/". Yippee!

      Connected to Time Warner Cable's "Roadrunner", after a frustrating year of Dial-Up Service from Milwaukee PC, getting my Internet connection dropped twice a day on average. I bought a DSL Modem from Milwaukee PC and paid them a year in advance for AT&T DSL Service, but their Modem never connected to the Internet for even a single second, so I could only connect via their Dial-Up for the past year. AT&T on-site repairmen do not exist. If your DSL problem cannot be fixed by AT&T over the phone, you're screwed! AT&T and Milwaukee PC had my money so why should they give a damn whether their DSL modem ever worked or not? On 06-27-2007 I paid Milwaukee PC for a second year of Dial-Up Service, but their service crashed that night and never came back up. Milwaukee PC cashed my check and kept my payment, but neglected to tell me their Dial-Up Service had been permanently discontinued. Screwed again! Two strikes and Milwaukee PC is OUT, and Roadrunner is IN.

      Removed top-of-the-page information on this site which listed serious site problems, in chronological order: 12-15-2005 and 06-12-2006. Unfortunately, these problems significantly affected how this site is now updated. The original concept since 1995 of uploading at one time all pages updated since a specific date is no longer possible at this time, or for the foreseeable future. From this point forward, until further notice, pages will be updated individually as needed, and as noted by the "(last updated .mm-dd-yyyy)" note at the top of every page.
      A number of new pages have been installed since 12-15-2005 which were not listed here until now.

          Due to requests, re-ordered and changed the Domain Site Map, replacing the URL text with each page's actual title. In case you prefer the old version, which will no longer be maintained, here is the only link to it. However, as of 05-15-2007, this changeover process is not complete. See the bottom of the page (#480 or so, on) for what it will eventually all look like.

          Vacation -- 8/07-12/2006, no computer or E-Mail access for 6 days. I was in New York City. The highlight of the trip for me was the Iridium Jazz Club and seeing Les Paul for the first time! 91 years old and still playing two 1-1/2 hour sets every Monday night, year 'round, simply AMAZING! Icing on the cake was one guest artist that night, also seen for the first time in person, Muriel Anderson! A few memorable pictures of that night can be seen at, Les Paul.

          Now that I finally have a VMS editing account again, why will it take awhile before I can resume installing updates to the Web site? I did a double backup of all source files (aka web pages) in my old VMS account. Neither of those backup copies have been changed since. However, I have been using a UNIX text editor to manually edit pages live on the Web site since the backup and my old account was deleted. Thus my source files and what is on the Web site are now grossly out of sync. I have to find every page changed on the Web site since 12-05-2005, download each one to my new account, compare each one with its original matching source file, and install the Web site changes in the source files. There may be as many as 700 pages that have to be re-synced like this, one by one, before I can resume normal editing and installation of updated source files. I don't know how long this will take, but it may be a month or more.
          The Digital Equipment Corporation (DEC, pronounced "deck") created the VMS Operating System that ran on thousands of its VAX, MicroVAX and Alpha Servers and Workstations in the 1980's and 1990's. As Digital was bought out by Compaq, which in turn was bought out by HP, VMS was phased out and replaced by Micro$oft Windows at the corporate level, but it remains in continuing demand at the user level.
          My new account is at http://eisner.decus.org/, an entire Web site and organization devoted exclusively to a large community of VMS users! In the 1980's, it started out as DECUS (DEC User's Society), evolved into Encompass, but is now a separate organization no longer with any direct corporate support. It is fully supported by volunteers and donations. Associating myself with an organization like this, it is unlikely that I will ever lose my VMS editing account again.

          08-25-2010: In order to save space, the 1995-2005 entries that used to be on this page have been taken off-line. If you really NEED to look at that old information, many previous versions of this page have been backed up by the Internet Archive and can be viewed at any time.
          07-04-2000: Slightly reformatted the Birthdays/Bibliography pages by preceding every name with a unique character "~" that does not appear anywhere else on these pages. I can now get a total count of how many entries are on all of these pages, something not possible before.
          11-25-1995: And, for those who have nothing better to read, or correspondents who wish to know, in detail, what I have been doing since 1-23-1995 instead of writing discographies, here is one more candidate for Yahoo's "Useless Pages" (http://dir.yahoo.com/Entertainment/Humor/Useless_Pages/ - JavaScript Restricted!) ... my pre-installation notes.
          [1-18-1998 note: in order to free up disk space for currently useful information, I have deleted my pre-installation notes page. If you are really curious how this Index evolved between 1-23-1995 and 11-25-1995, write to me and I will send you a copy.]
