I’m fairly good as an online picture researcher, but lately… ugh. Open Web picture research on certain historical topics is rapidly becoming nearly impossible, because search results get saturated by the websites of swivel-eyed loons and vast commercial robo-stores. I’d suggest we need some kind of Web browser filter to rid search results of “conspiracy theory crazies” and “commercial stores”, at least. Even a filter that just flags ‘known Photoshop fakes’ would be great, perhaps via some kind of pattern recognition.
I’m adding a posting here, with main tables-of-contents, so that the article titles can be indexed on JURN and the journal can be linked from the JURN Directory…

The Trello service has long been very useful for anyone organising the production of a small magazine with a few collaborators. Or a journal publication or even a book. The free non-business account on offer is perfectly capable for magazine production purposes. Now Trello has announced free Dropbox integration, even on the free non-business accounts…
In Firefox, just go: View | Page Style | No Style. This strips all formatting off the page.
Then scroll down to the bottom of what is now a much longer page than before, and near the bottom you’ll see the 1600px size pictures. You can the right-click on the picture and save.
The new free Mythlore Index covers issues 1-128 of the long-lived Mythlore journal, which hosts work on Tolkien and his circle. Also indexes the Tolkien Journal issues 1–18, though not the field-leading scholarship of the Tolkien Studies journal. Mythlore Index also includes a subject index, and is a whopping 420-page PDF.
Problem: You’ve been sent a .pages format document. No, I’d never heard of it either. Apparently it’s a sort of obscure equivalent of the old Windows .wps format, only it’s from word-processing software that ships with Macs. Like the old .wps format, nothing on earth will open it as intended — except its own native production software.
Solution 1: (defunct) It seems there used to be a Windows trick where you’d rename the .pages file as a .zip and there would be a preview.pdf inside that was usable. That trick doesn’t appear to work any more, at least with the newer versions of whatever Mac software makes .pages files.
Solution 2: (working)
1. Get the free LibreOffice, a version of the popular Open Office suite. The developers of LibreOffice are not afraid to incur the wrath of Apple by enabling .pages import. Install.
2. Open a new blank document in the Writer component of Libre Office.
3. Go: top menu bar | Insert | Document and insert your .pages file. Your document loads and appears, but looks like blank pages with a few lines of dots at the top of each page. The formatting has all been lost, but the dots are actually all the words scrunched up together.
4. Go: top menu bar | Edit | Select All | Copy.
5. Open MS Word or similar. Paste in what you just copied to the clipboard. As you’ll see, you’ve lost any fancy formatting there may have been in the .pages file, but at least you’ve got all the plain text and it’s in the right order, it flows and is editable.
