Blast from the past: My favorite posts Feb-Mar 2005

Here is a warm welcome to those of you who are new to my blog. I have been writing here since Feb 2005. There are a total of 487 articles so far on this blog. My goal is to ensure that every single post has some value. I try my best but goof up many times. I decided to look back and find some posts that may be of interest to you. Here they are:
