Well, it's been almost a year since my last episode was released to the world --- a statistic which will have been reset by the date on this missive --- and just over 7 months since my last rant. What have I been doing?

  1. tougher work schedule and workload
  2. more softball than any other year, by far
  3. continued repair and maintenance on old house we live in
  4. Lost (ABC TV)
  5. Terminator (Fox TV)
  6. Heroes (NBC TV)

The 4th and 6th items involved massive catching-up from DVD releases. I haven't followed much TV since the 1980s but these all keep my mind fertile and fresh.

As for writing, I've set a goal of trying to produce one jumbo-sized episode per month or so. "Jumbo" in the case of 970 meant 56K in size, which is the same amount of text as 4-5 typical "old" episodes. So you're getting the same amount of story text as you would if I released one story per week, but this way I can actually produce more material before the episode numbers reach 1000 and I stop for good.
