Archiving This Blog


I have decided it is time to retire this Blog and put it out to archive. I have never settled down to getting this Blog to be what I wanted it to be – though I have enjoyed being Anti-Trump (not that I am in America by the way). I have been running a number of Blogs day in and day out for years (except when taking a break for sickness, holidays, a rest, etc) and I think it is now time I look to focus on those that mean the most to me, while also giving me more time for reading, enjoying life, etc. So it has been a good run, but it is time to move on from here. The site will stay up as an archive of those past years. Thanks for stopping by and enjoying the site.

Moving Break


I will be taking a break from Blogging for the next 2 to 3 weeks. It has become necessary for me to move home and this will be taking place over this period – so it’s packing, cleaning, transporting, etc, for the next few weeks. I may be able to get back to Blogging before 3 weeks, we’ll see how the move all goes. There is a lot to do though.

Situation Update


My trip away has not been great, as I fell ill on the very first day and quickly went downhill from there. I was close to a trip to the emergency department at one stage, though things have now greatly improved. I am currently undergoing treatment and need time to recover fully. So it looks like I will be away from the Blog for another week. Back soon – I hope 🙂

More Time Away


I was posting a few Blogs and getting a few more ready when some bad news came through. Sadly I will be needing to take some more time away from the Blogs (immediately) – which is something completely unplanned and unexpected. This may be a lengthy break of two to three weeks. I’m afraid this is unavoidable and apologise for the time away from the Blog.

Salvaging Files


I have been able to make some progress over the last 24 hours in salvaging files that I have stored on my computer – from files for my websites, photos and videos from my travels, various documents covering a wide range of interests, etc. Slowly I have been able to make some progress in backing up the lot. I have of course backed up stuff over the years, but like plenty of people been slack for periods and sadly, I have currently been in a slack period thanks to illness.

If nothing else this experience has reinforced the need for very regular backups in order to limit the potential damage caused by such ‘disasters.’

Computer Problems


The latest Windows 10 update has basically trashed my computer. The update was installed automatically, so I wasn’t expecting it to happen. I had just turned the computer on and when I returned to it after allowing it to boot, there it was ‘installing.’ Anyhow, it failed and the computer is now unusable.

So what this means is that I will not be able to post in the ‘usual’ way for some time – very disappointing.
