+<h2>What's New on Shlomi Fish’s Homepage</h2>

+
+<p>
+Here are the recent updates for Shlomi Fish’s Homepage. The first item of
+note is that I implemented an automated test suite for the site, with a
+test for lack of trailing whitespace, and a spell checking test
+(powered by
+<a href="https://metacpan.org/module/Text::Hunspell">Text::Hunspell</a> and
+<a href="http://hunspell.sourceforge.net/">Hunspell</a>). The many problems
+pointed by these checkers were fixed, resulting in a very large patch to
+review this time.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Aside from the spelling corrections, here are the items of interest:
+</p>
+
+<p>
+The <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/meta/">meta section</a> now
+has a section naviation menu.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+I added the incomplete geek parody song
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/Im-The-Real-Tim-Toady/">“I’m
+    the Real Tim Toady”</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+    <p>
+    May I have your attention, please?<br />
+    May I have your attention, please?<br />
+    Will the real Tim Toady please match up?<br />
+    I repeat: will the real Tim Toady please match up?<br />
+    We’re going to have two problems here.
+    </p>

+jnoakes’ page about
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/by-others/grad-student-jokes-from-jnoakes/">Graduate
+    Student Jokes</a>, which I have enjoyed, and which has gone offline,
+has been restored on the site:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p><b>You know you’re a grad student when…</b></p>
+
+<ul>
+<li>you can identify universities by their internet domains. </li>
+<li>you are constantly looking for a thesis in novels. </li>
+<li>you have difficulty reading anything that doesn't have footnotes. </li>
+<li>you understand jokes about Foucault. </li>
+<li>the concept of free time scares you. </li>
+<li>you consider caffeine to be a major food group. </li>
+<li>you've ever brought books with you on vacation and actually studied. </li>
+<li>Saturday nights spent studying no longer seem weird. </li>
+</ul>
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/text-processing-tools/">A
+page with a List of Text Processing Tools</a> has been added to the software
+resources sub-section.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+There are new additions to the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour.html">Aphorisms and quotes collection</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+If it isn’t in my E-mail, it doesn’t exist. And if the whole world says one
+thing and E-mail says another, Email will conquer
+</p>
+</blockquote>
+
+(<p>Said to me in a private conversation by an Israeli Linux enthusiast.</p>).
+
+<p>
+There are also some new quotes in the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/facts/Chuck-Norris/">Chuck
+Norris Facts</a> page:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+Chuck Norris is the reason why the Knights who until Recently Said “Ni”, are no
+longer saying “Ni”.
+</p>
+</blockquote>
+
+<p>
+Finally, there are some new
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/">fortune cookies</a>:
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Enjoy!
