Rant Of The Day THIS RANT 07/10/98

Rant Of The Day is where I get to mouth off about whatever I feel like for however long I like. Theoretically, I'll update my whinge/opinion piece every weekday; in practice, maybe not so often.

On and on and on

I miss my Gusworld. You can tell something's not right in the world when two rants in a row start with an apology for the site not being updated in so long, and they're more than a month apart. I need to make a resolution: work is not that important. Fairly important fiscally, of course, and quite fun a lot of the time, but not that important.

Work is, of course, the main reason I haven't been able to put anything on the site for so long. I've been completely absorbed in developing a new Web site (it's at http://newswire.com.au, check it out, it's rather fine), and I've barely had enough energy to shop, let alone create. Man cannot live by bread alone, though, so Gusworld must have its original momentum returned. The sole and, it must be said, unexpected compensation is that Gusworld as a site is now becoming so large that it maintains a certain sense of its own momentum. This is especially evident if you check out the huge pile of mail I've only just gotten around to answering in Mailbox -- 40-odd pieces I've answered in a single sitting, and there's still heaps that needs dealing with. It's quite touching, and more than a little strange, to get so much correspondence. Keep it up, y'all.

Nonetheless, I feel a certain responsibility for the site's momentum as well, which is why I've taken the unprecedented step of skipping one of the writers in the ongoing saga that is Eye Of The Tigress. This is not a decision to be taken lightly, of course, but at some point, the novel must go on.

From now on, I'll try to be good, I promise. Although I can't say the same for Bubba.

Incidentally, if you're asking "Why the Kylie picture?," I would have to reply: "Why not?"
