Pennsylvania got there first

Not often does a State one-up the feds and the rest of the 50+5, but Pennsylvania did that many years ago and on to the present.

I have never seen this before in a blog

Visiting by accident, the human recommendations blog of the Marion (Indiana) Publique Library, I noticed something actually unique: A total lack of datestamps.

I cannot find anything on the index page or the individual posts to show when they were written or publisht. The URIs are … found it!!

If you clique on the individual images of books, then it says when they were “published”, which means uploaded to the server.

Sadly, the blog hasn’t been updated in almost 2 years. Their idea of not making it easy to see the date makes it hard for an immediate visitor to know if it is all out of date, hence less immediately rejection-worthy. As far as I know this is unique to them.

Creative will dryup

I have a problem that’s not quite writer’s block, but writing block. I have ideas to write, images to scan, comments to come up with on various old nonsense (InExObs), but no interest in doing so. Other things take time, even when they are completely pointless timewasters (like playing strategy games) that have no long term value, or really even short term value.

I promise I will try harder to get through my backlog of InExObs and similar matter. I need to somehow remind myself every week or so to do this for you who have subscribed to my blog and expect posts and not just deadness in return.

I don’t know if this is just me either. One of my favorite blogs, 8bitfics, has also gone quiet lately. Which is too bad since her work is quite excellent.

Also I discovered a blog on thermodynamics! Oddly, it is possible to blog about thermo. It is named carnotcycle. You kind of have to know about thermo to get much of it, but the available specific beauty of the science is visible in the graphs.
