As many people in the United States know, Vermont is a State in the Union. Like all other States, it has local government. UNlike most other States, the State’s Secretary of State (no connection with the federal one, currently Tillerson) maintains a list of local government non-civil service positions, viewable here.

I know the tendency these days is for rapid release of software, but I prefer the older, slower incrementing software. Consider that (MS) DOS went from 1.x to 6.x in over 10 years, while Firefox (for example) has gone up to 52 (!) in that time.
In college, you get to use plenty of library resources, whether you want to or not. Since most of them are behind (frequently malfunctioning) paywalls, there has developed an industry of software solutions to this. The paywalls when they work I mean.
My previous two posts got a good response (thank you!) which I think might have to do with the way I tagged them and the categories I used. Unfortunately I’m somewhat at a loss about how to tag frequently (this post is no exception). My posts ramble all over the place, which makes a simple schema hard to go by. Blogs like Awfullibrarybooks have it so easy since they can just use a modified Dewey scheme (or LC if they really felt like it).
