Do you have any intention of putting your unpublished work on the Los 
Alamos ArXiv?

It is hard to predict the future, of course, especially of electronic
media, but it is my impression that the Los Alamos ArXiv is the most
durable storage vehicle around for unpublished mathematical work.  It
has its limitations, which is why I also maintain my own website for
my papers, but some things (like my Ph.D. thesis) I put on both, if
for no other reason than that the ArXiv provides a backup in case I
die unexpectedly.
