The End

Way back at the beginning of the month I promised to post every day. Here we are at the end, and I seem to have done just that; at the cost, sometimes, of egregious barrel-scraping. What, then, have we learned from the experience?

Mainly: not to do it again. I mean, it was fun at first, but when you make something a duty it soon starts to feel like a chore. More than a few of these entries have been dreary to write and even drearier to read, and really, who benefits from that?

Time, then, to ring down the curtain. On this unwieldy month and also, I think, on WT as we know it. Five years in one incarnation is enough. It has been, as always, a slice, but now let's call it done and see what comes next.

Au revoir, mes enfants.

Summer does seem to be a blog-killer, doesn't it. A towel has been chucked in on this end as well. (Not to steal your thunder or anything.)

Time to take it to email, lads...

And another one bites the dust ...
Farewell and bon voyage, you'll be sorely missed.

Yeah, I'm going to miss it. Damn.

I assume you'll keep it up, at least?

Oh, dear.

[Alastair] There you go being dainty again :$
[Robin] Sorry about the towel :(
[Max] Nothing is going anywhere. Only the indexes will change.

[All] The operative words, obviously, were "as we know it." WT's successor is newly born and yet to find its feet, so who knows were it may lead? It is intended to be rather unbloglike, but it will remain a channel of communication. I hope you'll join me there.

Oh dear. Sorry to see you go - for now.

But time's a funny thing isn't it? It is merciless to blogs, it seems.

Anyway - from a one-time commenter and long-time lurker and reader, farewell, it was fun, and hope to see you irl soon.

Good night to old WT, good morning to whatever comes next. Thanks, matt, and all the best.
