Directory of GAVSD Posts

As promised, here's the directory of links for the GAVSD posts/comments/responses in this journal, for your reference. I tried to be careful, and I think this must be almost all of them; certainly it's more than enough. The first new GAVSD post is scheduled for December 5, 2008, and there'll be another one on the first Friday of every month thereafter for as long as possible, or until you ask me to stop. If you have particular questions that you'd like for me to cover in those posts, I'd be pleased to have them, and I will do my best to answer them.
