The purpose of this list is somewhat analogous to /usr/share and perhaps
especially (but not exclusively) /usr/share/doc. The list below are
different categories which were located in various places here on xexyl.net

- Added an old ncurses game I wrote; called 'Arrows' the object of
the game is to hit the left or right arrow key (on keyboard) for the
direction the middle arrow (of 5) is facing. Game ends when you
press 'q' or you (or some other process) sends it an interrupt. The
original inspiration was a study I participated during a procedure
in hospital in 2003. Thanks very much to my long time mate Lauritz
for requesting a while back that I release it for if nothing else it
gave me another thing to do. Cheers mate.

- Fix a reference of 'Stone Giant' to be 'Stone Troll': due to the
way Trolls originated (as in what Tolkien envisioned) there is a
connexion between trolls and giants and I did not make this entirely
clear in the original description. I also updated a few other sections to make
things a bit easier to follow or at least connect it to the relevant
parts as I see it anyway.
- 11 June 2019
- Add two sections to the history of The Lord of the Rings
document: pranks that Bingo plays on Farmer Maggot and the
alternative Ring verses.
- 03 May 2019
- Minor updates to the Tolkien documents: formatting, a few fixes
and added to the Balrog description in the history of Middle-earth
- 21 April 2019
- Several updates (including new content) to the Tolkien
documents (history of The Lord of the Rings but new document on
the History of Middle-earth which is more general and has some
new things I haven't documented amongst other things).
- Removed erroneous statement about Thorin having a Ring of Power
in The Hobbit, in the history of The Lord of the Rings document
(it's related to how the Rings of Power affected the Dwarves).
- Minor fixes and clarifications to the History of The Lord of
the Rings document in the restructured history section.
- Updated the History of Middle-earth document with additions
and trying to make it a bit easier to get to the main content
(as well as removing some irrelevant things in the
introduction). I think it's about time I make a menu but that
won't happen at this time; when I can't say but I'm also
thinking about reorganising it all possibly into multiple
documents but if nothing else a menu is in order.
- Updated the History of Middle-earth document.
- Note that the Tolkien directory has an update: specifically
a new essay about Tolkien; refuting and debunking the claim that
he was racist.
- Formatting and add last updated dates to menu. Note that
whilst the fractals index has a brief log the date does not
indicate the last time a fractal was put there.
- Formatting fixes and styles updates.
