oh, by the way...

Uncertain Times is a full one year old today.

Thanks to all of you loyal friends and visitors who have made this an extraordinarily fun ride. I have learned a great deal over the last year and you have helped this weblog to grow in ways that I had never anticipated.

Initially, I really had no idea what I was going to do with Uncertain Times, but over the months I have grown comfortable with what it has evidently become. I'll choose not to define that too precisely and just leave avenues open for wherever we may go.

As you might have noticed, posting has been down in volume over the last few months and I anticipate that this will remain the trend. There will be stops and spurts, but I'll always do my best to pass along the finest gems I can find, as has been my hope and intention all along.

Thanks again.

p.s. Uncertain Times v.ii has become a storehouse for random items that I find along the way. There has been a fair bit of action there lately.

Happy Birthday to the Master of the Eclectic.

I monitor your Vol ii, though I don't understand why it was spun off as a subsidiary.

Thanks for everything, Al - I'm working on it!

Thanks, Stan.

I started the Tumblr back when I was having my computer troubles and fell in love with it. There is a certain social-networking aspect to it - just enough for what I have time for - and it is very simple and user-friendly. Also, their support actually supports, unlike Blogger.

Considering my manifold time constraints these days, I post the items I feel are truly exceptional on the first one and I bung the rest up on v.ii. YMMV.

To clarify:

Back in the days when I was averaging 7-10 posts a day, I was putting in 4-8+ hours of work. (A big chunk of that time went into the "stray bullets" - that involved reading a rather large amount of articles and blog posts.)

At my current rate - 2-3 posts on UT, 15 or so on v.ii - I put in, roughly, 2-3 hours, which is about all I can spare.
