Looks like you and I are in the same boat! My memory these days has went to
Although I do the same thing Paul does to actually grasp a more in depth
understanding of something, sometimes in a day or two it's often forgotten.

Unfortunately, I really don't follow an organization plan for my
demos on any of my sites (well over a dozen now).
Please understand that when I started creating demos, I only wanted
to see how a specific thing worked. I had no idea that this
investigation would become a giant listing of stuff.
I could explain how I can easily create demos if you want, but it's
pretty basic stuff using includes for a common header/footer files
leaving only the specific of the topic to be added. The hard part is
just finding a layout that you like -- after that it's pretty easy to
duplicate it each time you want to demo something.
I will be updating my sperling.com soon to add in language specific
code (php/css/js) -- and that *will* be organized into categories.
However, that may be down the road because I have a few other
pressing matters that are pulling me in several different directions.
