September, 2001 to May 27, 2002: Too long without an update. A belated “happy 3rd birthday” to this web site (May 16). Primarily, I’ve been working on a few new articles, but the going has been slow. I’ve also fixed up my automated “link check” program, so there should be many fewer broken links which aren’t marked as being broken. For links that have been broken for a long time, I’ve created the Link Graveyard, which will just get bigger as time goes by, I’m sure. There have also been many little updates to articles, sprinkled throughout the site, too many to list here.

September 8, 2001: Arty Escobar sent me an email.

April 30 to May 20, 2001: Added in a review of Gary Jackson’s Syndrome-X Article, my own thoughts on the Economic Effects of a Psoriasis Cure and a review of Dr. Smith and Loma Lux Products.

I also found time to not only clean up more links, but to add a sprinkling of new ones throughout the site. I also updated the Great Mother’s Belly Butter review. And a belated “happy second birthday” to this site (May 16).

April 28 and 29, 2001: Ken Kessler sent me another email, so I took the time to update my Web page about him. Cleaned up more links.

April 22 to April 24, 2001: Fixed more broken links.

March 20 to April 21, 2001: Created an automated link-checking program, to find broken links both within this site, and for links to other Web sites. Began fixing the Broken Links that have been found so far. With over 1,000 off-site links, this will take some time.

The original page is now, simply, Organizations. Also, I added a new Tag, an eye, for those links I consider “Must-See” sites (some of them simply don’t deserve an “A+” as in the old system), and created a page so that all of the “Must-See” Sites can be found easily. I finally added the recipes for Homemade Seawater.

December 30, 1999: Now that the excitement of a new computer and new games to play has worn off… Massive change to the Moisturizers blurb, thanks mostly toScreeee. Finally added the page detailing Steroidal Side Effects. Updated the Miralex article to reflect the new Health Canada findings. I also split the ItchStopper article out from the Hyperthermia section (not sure why I had them on the same page in the first place), and got rid of the “ToDo” list.

Also, a small note about the unreviewed status of the Anthralin links has been added. I’d like to give myself a pat on the back now for having given every section a blurb of some kind. Also, reviews have been written for Simicort, Prevention’s “Ask the Naturopath”, and Psoriasis, Healing from the Inside Out. I’ve also added some links to Tacrolimus to the Immunomodifiers section.
