[*Note: Yeah I know, it doesn’t look very nice, a list of links, apologies. It’s been very busy the last couple of years, work and study and travel, so I haven’t been able to update the blog at all. I will try do better in the following issues. For the time being, looks like each Issue will occupy a single Page alone, and will not come in several posts with Tags and Categories as it’s been up to now, so bear this in mind when searching for stuff in this blog. Thank you. Regards, Varvara)
