Chronicling the collapse of a failed society
A pseudo-promotion (i.e., more work for the same money) has very successfully eaten away at the vacant office hours which I used to be able to devote to blogging. Hopefully things will calm down within the next couple of weeks and I’ll be able to get back to regular posting.
Apologies for the extended break in posting. I’m on vacation this month and will be doing some traveling until Sept 1, so I’m afraid regular posting is unlikely to resume before then. The timing couldn’t be worse considering all that’s going on at the moment. All I will say is that I’m taking all of my extra money out of dollars and putting it into gold, and I’d advise everyone else to do likewise – we’re in for some turbulent times.
I’ll be away from the Intertubes for the next few days, taking a much needed mini-vacation. Should be back on Saturday.
Should be back in business tomorrow.
After observing some strange activity on my blog yesterday, I decided to remove the post regarding the protests here. Better safe than sorry. Hopefully there are no further developments.
A sporadic Internet connection and ongoing WordPress quirks have conspired to prevent me from posting these last few days. Hopefully all problems will be resolved shortly.
Apologies for the extended break in posting. The explanation has to do with the aforementioned rabies scare – a scare which, hopefully, has reached its end.
My wife and I developed some worrisome medical symptoms over the last few weeks, prompting me to pass on the job in Oman. The worst seems to be behind us, but the stress of all this has made writing about politics and religion seem, well, somewhat trivial.
This blog is not dead yet though, and I hope to resume posting on a regular basis within the next 1-2 weeks.
A combination of a bad internet connection and lingering fears of an imminent, painful death from rabies have conspired to keep me from writing, but things should be back to normal by tomorrow.
