I've done the
James Bible and eventually, I'll get this journal electrified as well
(and maybe improve the writing style to boot!).
But in the mean time the next fairly easy thing to work on (unlike my ideas
for Shakespeare) is a dictionary. I have several to choose from, and it's
more usuable for more people than the Bible (but the journal/web log module
I want to write it going to be big).

brings up the defintion for “organization,” while

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are

so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
