Note to self #1: Greenstone

Nothing really to see here. I'm just cleaning off my long-suffering laptop, and uninstalling greenstone. Being the packrat that I am, and given how many hours I put into getting my greenstone library just right, I wanted to put my macros somewhere where I'd remember I put them. Unlike my usb keys, which thankfully are sitting in good hands waiting for me to pick up next semester. If any LIS students by some weird chance stumble upon this, you're welcome to use this for reference if you can make sense of it.

<h3 style="font-family:sans-serif, arial, helvetica; font-size:20px;">About Minden</h3>
<p style="font-family:sans-serif, arial, helvetica; font-size:14px;">The town of Minden, Ontario was settled in 1859, on the banks of the Gull River. During this time, British North America was keeping a wary eye to the south,
nervous of being the next target of the U.S. philosophy of Manifest Destiny. As such, the government began building roads into the yet-uninhabited Crown Land of
Upper Canada, expanding its colonized land northward in case of an invasion from the south, and attracting new impoverished immigrants away from the Great Lakes
with the promise of free land. The Bobcaygeon Road was one of these Colonization Roads, and reached the south bank of the Gull River in 1859 - then only a trail through
the dense forest. </p>
<p style="font-family:sans-serif, arial, helvetica; font-size:14px;">Today, Minden has a population of approximately 1,700 people, serving the township of Minden Hills
(pop'n 5,500). The County Seat of Haliburton County, the town is drastically different from its pre-Confederation beginings yet eerily similar. Built on and still
maintained by the trappings of a rough and tumble lumber town, Minden has become a popular arts and tourism destination, experiencing a population explosion
of 400% every summer.</p>
<p style="font-family:sans-serif, arial, helvetica; font-size:14px;">This photographic collection documents Minden's history, from the early days of dirt roads and
hitching posts, to modern day Minden Hills. </p>
