I've been writing a great deal in the past few days: blog posts, the seed content for a wiki, fiction at a somewhat impressive pace (for me). While (at press time) there are still lots of things on my plate and storms on the horizon it's very true that doing creative things, getting work done makes it considerably easier to do more creative things, and to get more work done. The stuff on my plate and the storms on the horizon in another seem less threatening. It's not logical, but I'm not going to argue with that.

Of note: I posted another story to Critical Futures from Chapter 6 of Knowing Mars, this is the last scene in this chapter, and I'll post it in three chapters. After that, we're going to get PDFs of Chapters 4-6, and I'll be posting more about that in time. Thanks to everyone's replies to my post about my emacs process, both on the thread and on identi.ca. I'm much impressed with all of your wisdom, and assistance. I didn't know about wdired-mode which I shall explore, and while I did know about magit, I hadn't gotten around to trying it yet. Here I come.

One last thing, if there are any perl, ikiwiki, CGI::FormBuilder, Dreamhost wizards out there, I would be very flattered and indebted if you'd take a look at this bug report I filed on ikiwiki, I'm having some sort of minor problem with CGI form generation, which is such a minor bug that I'm highly annoyed at the concept. On the one hand, it's a lot of effort to get ikiwiki working under these conditions, on the other hand it doesn't make a lot of sense to pay for a really robust server (with root access) for what will really be a minimal amount of content. Anyway, your help would be much appreciated.

ps. sorry for the late content.

pps. if you record a podcast over a skype (or other VoIP service) with Audacity and you're running Ubuntu/Debian/Linux... I'd love to hear from you.
