Moratorium

Moratorium I’ve been dissatisfied with this blog and have written nothing here this year while I mull what to do next. (I do have a few other projects in play…)

Some minor dissatisfactions are technical: the page layout fails to control what typographers call measure, more plainly, line length, a critical readability factor. I’ve devised solutions for this at my professional website and at a client’s website. I’m also now using UTF-8 encoding as a standard, which allows me to mix scripts such as APL program code and Cyrillic and Turkish alphabets. I should either upgrade my Movable Type software or considering shifting to the Joomla! content management system I’m trying to master. I’ve also been making more use of XML and there’s much in this site that could usefully be converted to this format.

But the major dissatisfaction is with my own writing. I’ve been using this platform, such as it is, to editorialise like a newspaper, venting the grief and rage that is my common reaction to current affairs. Surely something more helpful is possible? In recording my own affairs, I have been consistently promoting what an interesting life I have. Surely I’ve tired of this theme by now?

So the moratorium continues. I will be back. In force. Meantime the reading, watching and listening lists stay up-to-date.

The comment facility on this site was first spammed to death, then became silent when I applied TypeKey security. But if you are an interested reader, write to me and pray your message evades the spam filters.
