5 August 2019: Slowly but surely, the current tagging system is being rewritten to form a “mini wiki” of everyone involved with, and everything covered by, The Ωmega Beam. So if you click on a tag one day and then the next day find a lot more information, or if the tags on the show notes seem to be changing, that’s why. I’ll have another announcement when the work is finished.
