Emerging From the Tunnel

I haven’t blogged in a while. There is a reason for that. In addition to writing, I also manage a number of websites. It’s all volunteer work, do I don’t get paid for it. But I love doing the work, so I don’t need pay.

Recently, one of the sites I manage requested a wiki. After doing some research, I decided to install MediaWiki. This is the same software used by Wikipedia.

Unfortunately, Wikipedia is a programmer’s app. The documentation is written by programmers. The app install is designed for programmers. The configuration is programmer friendly. IOW, it was difficult to deal install and configure, and difficult to troubleshoot.

I started that install early last month and just finished two days ago. Well, I’m not really done, but it’s stable enough now that I can step away and return to other activities. Like writing.

I started my second book a while ago, ran into some issues on background research and stalled. Now, I’m ready to get back to it  I hope you, my followers, will forgive me for the absence.

During the time I was “away”, I also proofread a book for someone and edited another one. I will be writing a review of the edited book shortly, now that it’s been published.

I hope this upcoming holiday period turns out to be the best you’ve ever enjoyed, and I hope you’ll take time to remember the reason we celebrate Christmas. If you don’t know Christ, or don’t believe in God, I pray that this year will be the one in which the scales are removed from your eyes and you will see.

Nothing is more pleasurable than a life lived with God. I know. I’m seventy years old and God is my constant companion. He has blessed with with health and wealth (not so much materially as spiritually) and a wonderful family. How could a man ask for more than that?
