I have been doing some weeding.
Not, I hasten to add in the garden, as it's pissing rain once more and it feels more like October out there.
I have been weeding my links page.
The page takes a tiny bit of patience, as it just displays a list of links in a random order. If however you hang on for a second or two, it sorts all the links showing their latest posts and when it was posted. I decided to weed out those links that hadn't been updated in a year or more.
It's a sad job to see a load of old sites that I knew and loved disappearing into a black hole but then that's the way of things. Some I know have ceased publishing but I have left them there [how could anyone delete Captain Ranty?].
In all I deleted 52 sites, which leaves me with just 35 active ones. Damn but that's sad!
However, they say that every cloud has a silver lining [though I don’t think that applies to grey skies in August]. I did a wee search to see if there were any sites linking here that I didn't know about, and bugger me but there were.
Now I have to visit 'em all and see if they are up to date, and also read 'em all.
That should take a while?
Then I will add them to my page.
