Fiction

The published stories were written for Datamation back around 1970. There are a couple of others that I'll reenter someday. (Note, I'm the author of the pieces, not the copyright holder. I don't think it's likely that whoever holds the copyright nowadays will want them taken down, but they have only to ask ...). Unlike the rest of the material on the site, these are not published under the Creative Commons License. The copyright holder can, if they choose, restrict your access to and use of them. The unpublished stuff is just that -- unpublished and, in many cases, unfinished.

PANGLOSS LIVES!

Some fragments of a novel that will never be written. The original plan was to retrace Dante's path to Hell in reverse with lots of hopefully entertaining satire and social commentary. The problem turned out to be that I am a deeply flawed individual who finds Dante to be terminally boring. I'm quite sure that is my fault, not that of Signor Dante or his translators.

What does the working title -- Pangloss Lives! -- have to do with the content of the story? Nothing whatsoever. But it is a really fantastic title, No? (At least for those who have read Candide).

Site Links

Links to sites I find interesting for one reason or another. Maybe you will also. I have many more, but the list needs to be examined in detail, and I won't have time for that for a while:


YOU ARE PROBABLY VIEWING THIS AT http://donaldkenney.x10.mx HOWEVER THERE WAS/IS ANOTHER COPY AT http://Donaldkenney/110mb.com THAT IS CURRENTLY MOSTLY INACCESSIBLE BOTH TO YOU AND ME. I PLAN TO UPDATE THE INFORMATION THERE TO THE LATEST VERSION SHOULD THE SITE EVER REAPPEAR FOR MORE THAN A FEW MOMENTS

VERSION IDENTIFICATION

Version 2103 (March 2021)

This is a minor update intended to correct a few layout and bookkeeping errors in the November 2020 Site Update. I've added 201 new sites and fixed some bad internal links and spelling errors. I think the taxa lists are improved, but the software to check them still needs work

The easily corrected problems with my web site construction toolset should be fixed. The following problems remain:

site statistics from latlong.py
17139 sites in list 0 sites without position
17139 sites with latlong 0 sites with ddmmss format
1172 sites with PLSS/DLS positions 0 sites with only PLSS/DLSS positions
0 unconvertable locations 0 short entries
4 UTM locations 6696 Dubious locations
1 Possibly reversed locations 0 Unknown locations
0 Truncated Lat/Long 0 Unresolved locations
1 Positive longitudes 798 PLSS/DLS Positions without PM
17139 sites in list 0 tabulated sites
0 evaluated sites
12 unknown words 12 incorrect entries 881 words in supplement.txt

The "unknown words" are legitimate new taxa. I'm having trouble adding them to the list of legitimate taxa. Hopefully that will be fixed in next update

*The positive(East) longitude is legitimate

NOTE: This version of the site has not been fully checked for dead/altered external links. I have a stand alone link validation process, but it's not especially satisfactory.
