AD HOC....

2017, August

Slow recuperation allows time for reflection about many things, especially life's brevity and one's goals.

In fact, a few months back, and given the technological trends in the last ten years, I decided a major change was needed to make my work and offerings here more accessible.

Well, as a first step, I've decided to convert the main homonym & homophone dictionary into a mobile app for cell phones and tablets. With the help of my partner and wife, Sherry, I'm hoping to have that job done by mid 2019. If I'm lucky enough, I'll then convert all other products here to the same mobile format, thus eventually dispensing with all ebook and printed versions.

I figure that will be easier all round for those interested. And, I'll continue to comment on progress here.
