[Previous: August 2017, part #1] [Next: October 2017, part #1]

This is the "Editorial and Contents," part #1, of the September 2017 issue of my Shroud of Turin News. Following this editorial, I would normally list Shroud-related September 2017 news articles in separate posts, linked back to this post, but there were none I considered worth listing.


Rex Morgan's Shroud News: My scanning and word-processing of the 118 issues of Rex Morgan's Shroud News, provided by Ian Wilson, and emailing them to Barrie Schwortz, for him to convert to PDFs and add to his online Shroud News archive, continued in September up to issue #85, October 1994. [Right (enlarge)], i.e ~72% completed. Issues in that archive are up to #84, August 1994.

Posts: In September I blogged 5 new posts (latest uppermost): "Chronology of the Turin Shroud: Twelfth century," - 23rd; "VT-100 terminal to a DEC mini-computer, Timothy Linick and Karl Koch, #9," - 18th; "29 June 1987: On this day 30 years ago in the radiocarbon dating of the Turin Shroud," - 13th "Blood clots intact #24: The man on the Shroud: The evidence is overwhelming that the Turin Shroud is authentic!," - 4th "Editorial and Contents," Shroud of Turin News, August 2017," - 3rd.

Updates In September there were no significant updates in the background of past posts. Except that in September I finished going through my posts from 2015 backwards, and started from 2016 forwards, saving linked photos in case they become no longer online and replacing those which had gone offline.

Comments: In September I deleted as substandard two comment which I considered inane and not worth me wasting my scarce time answering them.

My radiocarbon dating hacker theory: I blogged no posts about my hacker theory in September.

My book: In September I continued to make progress in writing a dot-point outline of my book, "The Shroud of Turin: The Burial Sheet of Jesus!" on my smartphone (see 06Jul17). Chapter(s) I

worked on in September were: "6. History and the Shroud: AD 30 to 1355," but since changed to "...944." I had became bogged down in the Resurrection accounts (Mt 28:1-15; Mk 16:1-8; Lk 24:1-12 & Jn 20:1-18), but re-reading John Wenham's "Easter Enigma" is helping me disentangle them.

Pageviews: At midnight on 30 September 2017, Google Analytics [Below (enlarge)] gave this blog's "Pageviews all time history" as 798,759. This compares with 593,586 (up 205,173 or ~34.6%) from the same time in September 2016. It also gave the most viewed posts for the month (highest uppermost) as: "Blood clots intact #24: The man on the Shroud: The evidence is overwhelming that the Turin Shroud is authentic!," - 120; "Chronology of the Turin Shroud: Twelfth century," Sep 23, 2017 - 87; "Editorial and Contents," Shroud of Turin News, August 2017," Sep 3, 2017 - 80;"Obituary: Rev. H. David Sox (24 April 1936 - 28 August 2016)," - Aug 15, 2017 - 72; "John P. Jackson, `An Unconventional Hypothesis to Explain all Image Characteristics Found on the Shroud Image' (1991)," Aug 13, 2017 - 69
