If you see these posts through a feed reader — as the majority of you do, in fact — then you won’t be aware that I’ve done some remodeling/reorganizing here. As part of the process, I’m working my way through old posts, cleaning up special characters (mostly dashes and quotation marks) that got turned into something that looks cyrillic because of some strange digital transformation.
During the course of this, and it is ongoing, I’ve come across a number of “cringe” posts. I really wrote that? I should have known better. (Hops, in particular.) A lot of things I’ve forgotten about, to be honest. Including what were intended to be silly predictions, posted at the outset of 2007.
But, hey, look at this one:
