Er is eindelijk een redelijke versie van de hele site en van de individuele
directories ervan in zip-formaat.
Een en ander wordt helder in 't Engels uitgelegd in
MM-site zip version
inclusief instructies, zodat het ook mensen zonder snel internet mogelijk wordt

Het is niet geheel onproblematisch, voor wie er ook alle
achtergronden en overig beeldmateriaal, zoals pijlenknoppen, bij wil en voor wie
de vele links tussen de bestanden wil behouden, maar
MM-site zip version legt een en ander
helder en duidelijk uit, in het Engels.
Voor wie is het? Hier is een Engels citaat uit de laatste
6. Who is it for?
By and large, the zip-files are there to help people who want large parts
of the site or all of it and who do not have a fast internet-connection
or who do not have to download 250 MBs onto their harddisks and then
delete what they don't want.
So this suggests there may be two groups of such folks, that may overlap:
Those who lack a fast internet-connection, and those who want largish parts of
the site without having to download the whole site unzipped. Here are a few
remarks to each group, preceded by a remark what it is good for.
The site as E-book
The site as a whole is considerably more impressive than parts of it and is in
fact one large hypertext that is best seen as one large E-book. (For a survey
a.k.a. overview see the
Tour of the site.)
It is in many ways rather different from most sites, also most large site,
because the files are very much interlinked, and because much of the content
is radical in some ways.
This is notably so in the following sections
- The philosophy section
is special in that it contains
texts in fairly good html-editions, with my extensive notes, in their own
files, that often are collectively as long or longer than the texts they
comment on. One special part in it is the following:
Multatuli-section in the philosophy-section is
a good edition of the seven
books of Multatuli's ideas, all with my extensive notes. It is all in
Dutch, but it is one of the popular parts of the site.
- The ME in Amsterdam section
is a long Dutch hypertext on my trials and tribulations in Amsterdam
with ME and on
enormous decline of civilization and education in Holland over the
past 45 years, while during the same time Holland and
especially Amsterdam grew into the
Colombia of Europe - mafia-paradise for drugsdealers,
maintained and protected by the
Amsterdam mayors and councilmen.
Note that I have been the only person
to have been removed from a Dutch
university since 1945 "because of your outspoken opinions" shortly before
taking my M.A. in philosophy, which I was not allowed to take for the
quoted reason; that I have the
best possibly M.A. in psychology (but mostly not on psychology, because I
consider much of that not really scientific); and that I have 32 years of
M.E. without getting any help everyone with other serious diseases in Holland
do get. (This last bitter immoral and illegal discrimination does not only
hit me, but very many with ME, inside and outside of Holland:
It saves a lot of money, and only costs human lifes, of useless people who
are to ill to decently contribute to society, you see),
- The Nedernieuws +
Nederlog section (in Dutch for the
most part) contains many megabytes of radical cricitism and reporting of
contemporary events, mostly but not only in Holland, and also extend ME in
Amsterdam. I do not know of anything remotely like it, at least not in Dutch.
Philosophical Dictionary is mostly in English, with some Dutch
entries, and gives my own definitions and explanations of many terms
relating to logic and philosophy, as I use them. Again, it is radical in that
I know of very few philosophers who have clearly given their own preferred
usage of philosophical terms in their own words, and it also outlines some of
my own ideas in philosophy and logic.
I suppose these sections of the site are interesting for some to download
as one section and indeed they will probably will teach almost anyone who
reads them rather a lot, even if they do not agree with me at all, while in
general my own texts are at least fairly well written (if usually in haste and
Kortom, ik heb me de moeite gegeven om de site en de
delen ervan als E-book beschikbaar te maken
voor wie dat interesseert en denk dat de site daardoor een stuk verbeterd is.
Het is wel zo dat de site nu weer met zo'n 80 MB zipfiles
gegroeid is, maar dat is het sine qua non van deze verbetering.
Ik wens u veel leesplezier - en lees
MM-site zip version voordat u enthousiast
begint neer te laden: Het behoort allemaal te werken, maar enig beleid en
verstandig gebruik is nodig om het goed te laten werken.
P.S. Er zijn ook geen garanties dat het goed werkt, of van wat dan
ook, behalve dat ik er mijn best op gedaan heb.
