The holidays have me feeling so very frazzled that I forgot to post when I performed this reblog! Thanks much for the visit. I feel remiss that I am not spending as much time this month investigating the sites of those I follow.
Hmm… well…. quick post now working again. It must have been an errant Java update.
…I took an in-depth look at major and minor wordpress technicals, widget redesign and selection, and other new and improved ™ items. As well, did I flirt briefly with a couple of “paid” features, the use of which I will not allow myself without setting some goal or other.
…again. I have tried all manner of cookie manipulation/eradication. “Nothin’ doin’,” so to speak. Multiple browsers on multiple platforms both on Un*x and Window$ have this behaviour, so it appears that the Automattic boys have “fixed” something again… possibly….

If you still see the space in the list, beginning with “the 101″… which is still present as of October, 2013…
If you look toward the right column wherein I have posted links to sequences, unless by the time you have read this, my work therein has been completed, you will see within the link category named “sequences,” a space. Of course all the link categories to the right are involving sequences, apart from the default links, the calendar, recent posts, etc. In any case, as of this writing you will still see a space after which you will see a link for “the 101.”
This space marks the division between my previous method of linking (using menu widgets) and my new method (involving link widgets.) The new method allows me to easily move a link from “sequences” to, for example “featured” or some other heading simply by editing the link in question and changing the category to which it belongs. This is a great labour-saving system, but it has been a very long process, as I have set about reworking some aspects of the site.
What has inspired this post is simply that I have noticed that the list of old links is growing small! At first It felt as though it would never be completed. The list of sequence seemed to have grown so large, you see; and I hadn’t really taken a good look at it until just this morning. Only a scant handful of sequence left (plus possibly a few short sequences to which I hadn’t provided links before–I have, in fact, encountered a few of those here and there as I have been going over things)
It is a good feeling to see that ones work is progressing, even when the work in question is simple “scut work,” as our beloved combat engineer might term it. For so very long the list after the vexing break and beginning with “the 101” has been much longer than the list of finished links; or so I thought. Apparently, it has been of junior length for a long while now, and, all the while, escaping my notice.
In any case, here it is almost finished and I hadn’t even noticed the progress I had been making. It just seemed like a long, long, task that would never come to an end.

So much so that I despaired the first time you vanished taking all your words with you. So very much so, I made myself afraid, after a time, to visit your site fearing it would once again be gone.
So much did you inspire and ignite my imagination.
