After 4+ months of twice-weekly blogging, I have discovered that writing an average of 1000 words per week does not mesh well with such things as full-time jobs and sleep. Moreover, I have rediscovered the fact that deadlines, even imprecise and self-imposed, are not my friend. In order to preserve my sanity, and (with any luck) the quality of this space's content, I have decided to scale back to weekly posts. I know, I know... but hey, I'm giving this stuff away for free, so simmer down.
