A few weeks ago, I went back to LinkedIn in search of a download for my old post and comments. I intend to put them on this site so that all my writing is together.

It took a bit longer than expected, because the automated download was incomplete on my profile.

So that will take some time to clean up and post here in a sensible fashion.
