Yet Another Bloody Update

The first thing to report is that I'm now properly back on line, so that should make working on the blog a bit more straightforward. Unfortunately, that doesn't help with my main problem: how to condense (or finish) the mass of notes and half-written blog posts I have on understanding and rule-following. I'm finding that a formidable task, to be honest; at the last count I had nine half-written posts amounting to around 27,000 words in total.

Well, I shall just have to knuckle down and get on with it. To quote Goethe, "Don't let the best be the enemy of the good".


  1. Good luck, Philip. Looking forward to reading what you come up with. Paul

  2. Thanks Paul (and good to hear from you again). To be honest, one of the problems I'm having is that the position I've reached regarding all this is relatively straightforward, but at the same time a bit disquieting. I wind up sounding a bit strange and I'm not sure if that's because I'm reading more into the text than is actually there, or if I'm not putting it in the right terms, or if it really is like I'm saying it is and it's not strange at all. It's making me hesitant.

  3. Glad to see you back!

    1. Ta. I've been catching up with your blog too - some good stuff on there.
