I'll be slowly adding historic articles to the tab above but new articles will be in the form of blog posts (as that seems to be how it's done these days).  As far as I can tell, anyone can subscribe to be notified of any new blog posts, and that might the way forward to avoid having to continually check back.  I'll aim to publish new blog posts on a regular basis.  Comments are also possible in response to the blog posts. At the moment, you don't need to be a member to comment.  In the meantime check the Blog section for a new existing feature, intended to be constantly updated, called 'Ask Orsam....about the diary'.  That's it for the moment, I'm still trying to understand how this site actually works.  If you find out, let me know.

News Update: 31 Aug 2023

A new blog post has been added (just a quickie) entitled 'Reflections on the Suckered! Trilogy' and the three articles in that very trilogy have been re-uploaded to this new site under the 'Historic Articles' tab.  If you haven't read them for a long time, I would say they are worth a re-read.  If you've never read them before, they are a must read.

Lord Orsam has also updated his Ask Orsam....about the diary blog feature with some brand new answers (in blue font) to some questions arising out of an online posting earlier today.  Lord Orsam does love to receive and respond to customer feedback! Some yet further Q&A (in yellow font) arise out of another online posting this afternoon by the same person. And wow, he's been remarkably busy this evening, for I see yet another answer added in cream colour.
