     Some ideas and works in progress.
     Many of these articles are just rough drafts or thinking out loud, so don't expect too much of them. They are in no particular order in the hope that the reader may diversify their interests.
Best way to view this page is to keep the History mode of your browser on so you know where you have been, and keep an eye on the "Updated" and "Added" comments -I don't always put new stuff at the bottom, I will sometimes place them with a related article.
     Some of these articles have previously been published in G2mil. The versions here are of a slightly different format and may have been updated.

        Please place something like "Scrapboard" in the Subject title otherwise I might mistake posts for spam. Sadly, due to several timewasters and abusive posters do not contact me on the subjects of Politics, Religion or Ballistics.
