1. The site per directory briefly explained

As of today, there is a zip-version of the site - indeed, there are zip-versions, because you can download the lot or selected directories as zip-files.

It is all explained in English in MM-site zip version also with clear instructions and explanations, and also in Dutch in the previous Nederlog (with some English).

My three main reasons to make a zip-version of the site are

  • To have the whole site zipped and stored in several places.
  • To make the whole site available as E-book, because the site is far more and far better than its individual files, and is in fact and intention one  fairly carefully crafted hypertext, where everything in it is related to everything else, logically and humanly speaking.
  • To help those who do not have a fast internet - and I have readers from more than 70 countries - to get the whole site or considerable parts thereof without much hassle nor many hours downloading.

Note that MM-site zip version explains that if you are on a slow internet connection, some work will be involved and the less you download and install the less likely it is all gets displayed well (notably the arrows I use, though clicking on their empty places does their job for that place), while if you are on a really fast internet and want the whole site or large parts of it, it is best to download the whole site and delete what you don't want.

In any case, the site altogether as E-book, or indeed also large parts of it, is more impressive than individual files on it, and probably will teach you something, even if you disagree with most of what I wrote.
