As for cruising the rest of this site, dazed scholars can go straight down to the 3 less oblique navagational options--site index, map, & search. For the impatient member scholars, there is the AoF News Bulletin which provides a listing of latest additions to AoF so you can skip the rest of the site which you'd know like the back of your palm (what's there to know really?), right?
On to an explanation of the most convoluted (but AoF prefer to think of it as being metaphorically rich) site organization ever then...
