This report covers not only the root directory but all subdirectories.
NOTE: If you have a tool or method for monitoring changed Webpages, this is the only page that you need to monitor on this Website, because it will always point to all other recently changed pages where the cause of the change was something other than a typographic error.
2018/01/08 - Revised the Goeppinger book announcement to reflect a second printing in which many of the typographic errors of the first printing have been corrected; the corrected typos are now listed on a separate page, as are remaining typos, commentary and research notes.

|My apologies to those who have contributed information this year and were promised that it would appear "in the next update." Life happens, but a data update did not. Please be assured that your contribution has not been lost, but is part of a huge accumulation that is waiting to be integrated into the database. /s/ CSZ|
Revised the "Direction" note block which follows (and floats in this page):
"To travel far, you must choose a direction"
The direction in which the TowerBells Website is traveling can be seen in the worklist which is set out below. In roughly prioritized order, this shows the major tasks which the author has set himself, and which are intended to result in future news items on this page.
