    Sometimes (most of the time) I think @thomasbrand is trolling me.

      @johngordon I still search my archives too.

        The global timeline in ADN should be renamed SPAM.

          thank you @manton I was looking forward to hearing your opinion.

            It is time to start a new day.

              If I write something original I will give it a permalink, and see how it stands the test of time, but fore everything else consider my message echoes in the airwaves. When the time is 2:00 and the national anthem is playing, today's broadcast is over.

                Not only for me, but my audience as well. When you pick up a magazine, you don't expect to have access to every back issue. How many people actually archive their Twitter timeline and reference it on a regular basis?

                  I am even thinking about removing more of my old permalinks articles. Surely they are cached in the Internet Archive by now; and I will always have a copy. I just feel like disposable blogging lends itself to a more enjoyable publication.

                    I can't say my new blogging method is smart. All of the information I write without permalinks leaves the web when it overflows my homepage. The detachment of writing for the moment has me publishing more often. My regular readership is going up.

                      For the last few months I have been practicing a new way of blogging. Articles of reference receive a permalink and a summary on the homepage and RSS feed. While link list articles are displayed in full on the homepage and RSS feed but without a permalink.

                        @wesleyt sort I couldn't be much help. I mostly just make everything bigger. Do more in the commandline with a ridiculously sized prompt.

                          @joanna I didn't even know there was a Windows version

                            @sevan I had to unplug the network on the server. Will resume tomorrow. Sorry about the lack of notice.

                              @mdhughes and the boxes and manuals were huge.

                                @sevan thanks. You get to keep your server.
