<!-- TITLE=New Changes for 18-December-2005-->
<p>
Here are the new changes to <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/">the home site
    of Shlomi Fish</a> since the last update. This entry will be divided into
two: first the content additions, and then the presentation changes and
other corrections.
</p>

<p><b>Content Additions</b></p>

<ol>

<li>
I published <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/philosophy/philosophy/advice-for-the-young/">an
essay titled “Advice for the Young” (or the Young at heart)</a> continuing
the trend of people giving advice to programming wannabes.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/art/better-scm/">A Page about “The Better
SCM” Logo</a> was added to the <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/art/">Art
section</a>.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/art/photography/2005-11-27-cats/">A Page
with some photographs I took of cats in my neigbourhood</a> was also added
to the art section.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/puzzles/">A New Puzzles Section</a> was
set up featuring the old Math-Ventures page and
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/puzzles/logic/">some new Logic puzzles</a>.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/open-source/resources/software-tools/">The
Software Construction and Management links page</a> was moved to a new
location, and heavily updated.
</li>

<li>
I now <a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/work/hire-me/">have a “Hire Me!”
page</a> about the various ways one can employ me.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/philosophy/computers/web/online-communities/">A
new essay -
“Reflections on Online Communities”</a> is now in the process of being
written. An
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/philosophy/computers/web/online-communities/index-old.html">older
incarnation of it</a> is available, but
it only serves as comments to
<a href="http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/BuildingCommunitieswithSo.html">the
original essay by Joel Spolsky</a>.
</li>

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/meta/">A new section with some
information about the site itself</a> was added to the site.
</li>

<li>
Several new funny bits were added to the
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/humour.html">Humour collection</a>.
</li>

<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/links.html">The Links Page</a> now has a
table of contents.

<li>
<a href="http://www.shlomifish.org/lecture/">The Presentations’

the presentations’ front pages are more usable now.
</li>
<li>
I’ve set up Google Ads for the pages of the site, and also
