An hour or so ago a post went up that I didn’t mean to go public. I’d written it last weekend, didn’t get a chance to finish it, but flagged it for publication on Thursday (today) so that I’d remember that it was “Thursday’s post”. Then I forgot all about it when the Mass Effect business popped up.

The article wasn’t even finished, or proofed, it was missing supporting links and I hadn’t even finished thinking my arguments through. It was more of a “this would be a good article to have later” sort of stub.

I’m explaining this because I took the article down. Sorry to the people who read through to find it wasn’t even finished.

    I read the first paragraph of the post before it disappeared. You may be interested in the following weblog post on the same subject, if you haven’t already read it:

    Behold WordPress, Destroyer of CPUs

    No worries. But when you do post it, I would add a bit about limiting CPU usuage will help guide Adam Smith’s “Invisible Hand”.

    I had noticed that you seemed especially prolific with your writing today. :)

    It’s still appearing on your RSS feed, so you might want to sort that out ;) For people like me, who mainly read the Blog via the RSS, it’s a bit disconcerting to see ‘You rolled a 1 on your saving throw vs. Dork’ (Quite amusing 404, but that’s beside the point). :D

    I second the prolific-ary. I was about to start wondering if your pen name was Stephen King or something, LOL.

    I had a feeling that was an unintentional post. That would have been quite a few large posts for a single day. Great for the readers, but a tough pace to maintain for the author.

    Yeah, I tried to read the thing when it first came up. Had no idea what was going on. This isn’t a consequence of your writing, Shamus, it’s just that I have no idea how all that “webernet” stuff works. Why do you think I use Blogger?
