Hello and welcome!

Norman Walsh maintains this site. It used to be for publishing software and resources but, twenty odd years in [yes, twenty!], those are mostly distributed elsewhere. There’s some archival stuff here and a few odds and ends. The activity stream is the only thing that’s regularly updated. Enjoy your stay. If you're interested in the stuff here, you may also be interested in norm's weblog. Or not. Only you can decide.

You can also find norm on Twitter, GitHub, Flickr (but see also his own site), the book of face (rarely), LinkedIn, Google+, and probably a dozen other places too.

And now, for your amusement:

Announcements

15 Mar 2018

Converted to build with gradle; refactored a whole bunch of stuff. Hopefully I didn’t break anything. I did remove a bunch of cruft that appears to have been broken for years.

29 Mar 2015

I reorganized almost everything to be more mobile-friendly and responsive.

20 Oct 2011

I converted the repository where I store the sources for this site from Mercurial to Git. You aren't supposed to be able to tell. But if I'm wrong, please do tell me.

11 Aug 2006

I've just finished a complete redesign along the lines of the recent redesign of docbook.org. I think I've preserved all of the existing URIs, but let me know if you notice something missing.
