By the time you read this I will be gone.
Like a thief in the night, I slipped away when you weren't looking.
I don't know exactly where I'll be but it won't be here. I imagine I will be somewhere on the road, cursing at crap drivers and looking forward to a bit of a holiday in West Cork.
Yes – I am going to No-Interwebland for a couple of weeks.
Rather than leave this site just gathering dust, I came up with the idea of reprieving a few old posts that I had forgotten about. They have been languishing in the vaults, unloved and wilting so why not give them a breath of fresh air?
Now there is a small problem here. I can connect to the Interweb where I'm going, but only on my mobile phone. So I might occasionally drop in to read comments but I won't be replying for the simple reason that typing on a tiny screen where one fingertip covers about six keys is a gigantic pain in the hole and suitable only for sending the odd text. It would take me a week just to type that last sentence.
If you want to chat amongst yourselves, there is little I can do to stop you. However chatting is only open to people who have chatted before. If you're a newcomer then tough – you'll go into Moderation until I get back.
I have picked the posts more or less at random. The only criterion is that the post doesn't involve current affairs that applied at the time. This eliminated quite a few as it meant dumping all the political ones.
I also discovered that my repetition rate is scary. I also had to dump all the items that I had written about recently [and probably multiple times].
I honestly haven't a clue if this will work. If it does, they'll pop up at random from time to time.
If it doesn't, you won't even see this, so don't say I didn't warn you.
In the meantime….
