Added <a href="/office/books.html">books</a>! About 2.5 shelves are
there, minus a whole lot that weren't readily accessible from the
Library of Congress. Getting all of the books on there is going to
be a tough job. These are, by the way, managed by good-old (or new?)

well as the current term are determined automagically now. Lots of
work done. Some more stubs up (office etc.). And I introduce cow -
that is, the CSC Ontological Webalizer - which is just a wrapper
around libxslt with some extra xpath functions. It is now what is
being used to build the site, instead of xsltproc.
