# Notice (Oct 19/05): So ends my stay here on Blogger. This morning Google implemented an anti-spam 'feature' that forces me to answer a challenge phrase when I want to post to my own blog. No notice of the change, nothing. Worse is that it doesn't even work! I type the phrase, submit, "An error occured", post deleted. Damn you, Google. Chances are I will revive my blog somewhere else, sometime soon. I'll post the new coordinates here as soon as they become available. (BTW, I'm unable to post anything to my RSS stream, so I'd appreciate it if readers could spread the word and ask people to take a look at this notice)

Update (Oct 19/05, ~noon): After a frustrating few hours (and not just trying out alternatives to Blogger), I've decided that this is a good time to take a break from all this. A day? A week? Who knows. But I need to step away from it before I pass a heavy magnet over the whole mess.

Update 2: According to this post, the reason I'm seeing the CAPTCHA (challenge phrase) is that Blogger has classified my blog as spam. Thanks. User for five years and now I'm spam. I searched the Blogger site, but there is no mention of how to get the spam flag turned off. There is also no way of contacting anyone at Blogger. Wow. Spam they say I am, so spam I must be. Maybe it is time to take a break.

Update : Work today was busy. The final exams, originally due Friday, were now due today. I put the finishing touches on mine this evening, will reread in the morning after a good night's sleep, and then hand it in. It was a bit stressful having to crunch the work into one day (I prefer to iterate over several), but at the same time, I'm glad its done.

Looking at my calendar for the rest of the week... ugh, it looks full. Meetings and presentations. No major deliverables, but a number of small things, some of which have been articulated and dutifully noted, other still in the "oh yeah, I've got to remember to do that..." space. The kind of week where I'm not sure I have time to get organized. Just to pick a pile and start shoveling.

(Note: if the posts are slow here, check my delicious and flickr accounts (see sidebar)... there's usually something there..)
