+<!-- TITLE=What’s New on Shlomi Fish’s Homepage-->
+<p>
+Here are the recent updates for Shlomi Fish’s Homepage. Most of the work this
+time was done on the look, feel, and infrastructure of the site, such as the
+navigation menus, but there is still some new (and hopefully interesting)
+content. So without further ado, here is what is new:
+</p>
+
+<ol>
+
+<li>
+
+<p>
+The main navigation menu to the right now comprises of most of the pages that
+were navigable and previously were present only in the section navigation menus.
+Since its HTML markup was quite excessive, I decided to load most of the
+content using an <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ajax_%28programming%29" rel="nofollow">AJAX</a> (=
+“Asyncrhonous JavaScript And XML” or “XMLHTTPRequest”) fetch of a JSON
+document, while keeping a smaller subset still usable as plain HTML for
+browsers with JavaScript disabled and for search engines and other web user
+agents.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+I made sure that the expansion state of the navigation menu is preserved
+between the pages. Moreover, the much maligned section navigation menus are now
+hidden by default, but can be enabled using the button and should remember
+their state between pages.
+</p>
+
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+There is a new <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/lecture/HTML-Tutorial/" rel="nofollow">HTML Tutorial in Hebrew</a>
+under work. Currently, there is only one section, and some aspects of it are lacking.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+There is a new
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/text-processing-tools/" rel="nofollow">list
+of text processing tools</a> and
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/networking-clients/" rel="nofollow">a list of networking clients</a> in the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/" rel="nofollow">software
+resources section</a>.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+I added new quotes to the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/fortunes/" rel="nofollow">fortune cookies collection</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+
+<p>
+<li><b>Yaakov: </b>I LOVE YOU ALL WITH A GREAT HUGE LOVE</li>
+<li><b>rindolf: </b>Yaakov: HOW MUCH DOES YOUR GREAT HUGE LOVE COST?</li>
+<li><b>Yaakov: </b>It&#39;s on offer half price today.</li>
+<li><b>rindolf: </b>Yaakov: I WILL OFFER YOU 200,000 VIRTUAL DOLLARS FOR YOUR GREAT HUGE  LOVE.</li>
+<li><b>Yaakov: </b>The regular price is free of charge.</li>
+<li><b>rindolf: </b>Yaakov: oh nice.</li>
+<li><i>* rindolf buys Yaakov&#39;s GREAT HUGE LOVE.</i></li>
+<li><b>rindolf: </b>I LOVE YOU ALL WITH YAAKOV&#39;S GREAT HUGE LOVE.</li>

+<p>
+The third version of my essay
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/philosophy/foss-other-beasts/" rel="nofollow">“Open source,
+Free software, and Other Beasts”</a> is now live. It was converted from
+DocBook 4 to DocBook 5 and greatly enhanced.
+</p>
+</li>
+
+<li>
+<p>
+Also new is the
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/projects/countdown/" rel="nofollow">countdown
+program</a> which is similar to the UNIX sleep command, only displays the
+amount of time remaining.
+</p>

+<li>
+<p>
+There’s a new and open source
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/projects/japanese-puzzle-games/binary-puzzle/" rel="nofollow">solver for the so-called “Binary Puzzles”</a>. It is still
+incomplete.

+<p>
+There is a new geek song parody (under work) titled
+<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour/bits/Can-I-SCO-Now/" rel="nofollow">“Can I SCO Now?”</a> sang to
+the music of <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kx4YdVmhwoM" rel="nofollow">Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Can I Go Now?”</a>:
+</p>
+
+<blockquote>
+<p>
+Can I SCO now?<br />
+Sue who you wanna sue,<br />
+it doesn't matter anyhoo,<br />
+it's time to litigate.<br />
+Can I SCO Now?<br />
+Say what you wanna say,<br />
+we don't care anyway,<br />
+we're going to inflate.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+Can I, can I, SCO now….
+</p>
