An index of items created or active during the current calendar year.
It can sometimes be difficult to wade through someone's port to find the new stories or active items hidden amidst the older items and activities from days long past. I decided that I would keep an item that indexes everything I create or keep active during the current calendar year, so visitors to my port can find the new and noteworthy items quickly and easily.
