Network Ownership

"Think Critically" with BENjamin-NEWton's Network © Ben Huot 1998-Present.

Website designs and all content not marked with a specific license copyrighted, from 1998-Present. I am the webmaster of this network, which includes a half dozen different, but related websites.

These websites all serve different purposes or audiences, but all share one thing in common: they are all created by me and are about me and my mission/ministry. I am the webmaster, so that I not only create everything on these websites, but also have designed and done all the technical things, to make this site work well, on a wide range of the most popular devices.

I have worked on all this for 20 years now, while understanding that I would never make any money off of it, as my niche is too small.

All of these techniques are purely LaTeX for pdftex or xetex compiler. You can use these techniques freely, as long as you don't copy my general site designs. I got most of them or parts of them from other places as well.
