…back pages…

something extra…

I needed an undisturbed surface to write some additional notes to all the other stuff you'll find around on our site. So a quick clean-up gave me this, where decorations are kept at a minimum and we can focus on content. That's what you're here for, isn't it?

related to web carpentry…

I won't wander very far away from the subject of this section, but not everything is about code and (x)html and CSS and stuff like that. If I think it's useful for someone in this trade, then it may well end up here whatever it is.

The simple reason for having additional pages like these, is to avoid extremely long pages with a lot of sub-sections. These pages will be added as sub-sections when needed.

Each page is complete on a subject, but you will end up jumping between different subjects and categories if you surf these pages linearly.
