HTML Static Macros: I have just completed a major refoctoring of HTML Static macros. The main difference you will notice is in the electronics section.

I am in a bit of a pickle. My HIV (Human Imumuno-deficiency Virus)
drugs have stopped working. My personal load of
viruses over the years have done an astounding job of evolving immunity to all
drugs that I can tolerate. A new drug was supposed to be released 2013-03, but it still has not appeared. My energy level is dropping
to a distressing degree. I find I have to work myself up mentally with adrenalin
to get anything done. Last revised/verified:2013-04-22
I accidentally discovered that avoiding wheat cleared up my problems with
non-stop nausea and digestive tract distress. Unfortunately, I just love baked

serious about avoiding sugar in any form, especially fruit juice, is improving my
energy level. Last revised/verified:2012-02-27
