Time to get going again!
The Extemp Files were updated yesterday (Monday). They’re complete through June (just before Nationals). While I did manage to pull articles all summer, they have not all been filed yet. As such, there are articles for the three months since Nationals in the extemp files, but more will be added. (The extreme number of articles on the elections is the major reason for the backlog.) I’ve also tried to file as many of the China articles as I can find for the CX people.
The Extemp Backfiles folder is gradually being populated, with part of 2011 still to go. (2012-2014 are there, though there are gaps where life got in the way.) I will, at some point soon, move the 2015 articles from the current files to the backfiles; I’ll post the fact when it happens.
Extemp Files instructions repost: The link takes you to a Dropbox folder; if a pop-over window saying something about setting up an account or logging in comes up, just close it.
The files are serious overkill – over 36,000 articles right now. There should be a way to copy or download individual articles when you find the ones you want in your files – try right-clicking the specific PDF file/article and selecting the ‘save link as’ option.
The four-digit numbers at the beginning of most of the file names (and the names of the sub-folders) are simply mm/yy codes so that you can tell how recent the article is at a glance.
