This site is live well ahead of being complete, to give visitors access to the material as it accumulates. Much of it is being moved over from the old (really old) site, which is still accessible. If you're browsing, you can choose either site; if you're looking for specific information, you might have to search both sites.

I hope to have this new wiki-based site completely filled out soon... and begin filling it with additional content as a parallel and continuing process. Until then, you will probably run into unfinished and stub pages. I will also be evolving the style to a more Max-like one, and you might encounter some quirks as a result of that. As Max would say, "Sorry. S-Sorry."
