This index is accurate to the best of my ability to recollect. I recently found the complete chronological list of everything that I'd written through the end of 1986, so that section is accurate as is 2003 to date. The rest are placed according to the info I've got. If I get better info, I may move them to a different year.

Some things are obvious, looking back. Finishing "Promises" gave me a case of writer's block that lasted a year. That dry spell in 1995 and 1996 was from writing and shipping Alcar's first Windows product.

And some of these songs, I had just forgotten. Apparently, Clif and I wrote "Hacker Symbols" to the tune of "Herbs and Simples". I even found a permission form that suggests that Juanita recorded it. Now if I could only find the lyrics...
