16:47 jeffreykegler I am touching up "Timeline" a bit -- I've fixed 3 typos.
16:47 jeffreykegler Some aspects are harder than they seem -- getting correct dates can be tricky.
16:48 jeffreykegler For example, Wikipedia gives yacc's date as 1970, which is certainly approximately right, but nothing I have found justifies an exact date of 1970.
16:48 jeffreykegler Certainly the source Wikipedia cites does not justify the date in the text.
16:50 jeffreykegler Some software doesn't really have an exact date of completion.  I often have to think and research carefully to produce a correct date for aspects of Marpa, which you'd think would be easy.
16:50 jeffreykegler So the touch-ups will come slowly, as I try to get them right.
17:21 Aria Nice. It's hard to dig that far back.
17:21 Aria Especially since so much history is on some tape somewhere in some silicon valley company.
17:34 jeffreykegler Btw, I'm now getting 100's of pageviews a day via stumbleupon.com
17:35 jeffreykegler It's a site that feeds you random webpages based on your interests, and pages you like.  I signed up out of curiousity, but if there's a way to search it, I can't find it ...
17:39 jeffreykegler and I'm not sure what it means.
17:39 jeffreykegler Though I guess people looking at the site is better than people not looking at my site. :-)
17:41 jeffreykegler Warning: stumbleupon does look potentially addictive.
