Missing Link’s mid-year holiday

Gummo is sick, Amanda doesn’t have computer access at the moment, Jen is under the hammer to finish assignments for her Masters, and I’m not sure where Stephen Hill and Tim Sterne are (flat out looking for a job in Tim’s case, I suspect).  Gilmae is going on a holiday soon and won’t have computer access either. 

The universe is telling us it’s time for Missing Link to take a mid-year holiday.  It will also give me time to catch up with lots of things I haven’t been getting to, not least helping Nicholas with a new project that needs lots of time put in to get it off the ground. 

Missing Link is therefore officially on holiday until 21 July.

  1. Call it Christmas in July.

  2. You deserve a break, Ken – you’ve been flat out with this for ages; you’ve also included all the clever ‘arty’ decorations and uniform structure. That’s hard to do well (and consistently) while still keeping lots of other balls in the air at the same time.

    Enjoy the rest.

    What SL said.

    You provide a great service to the aussie-bloggy-world.

    Even if I don’t always get the arty deco :(

  4. I’ve always thought a daily round up was a bit of a stretch. How about Mon, Wed and Friday.

    FXH;

    I think the idea of moving to a daily roundup was that it kept the workload for any one day manageable.

    It’s such a hard time of year at the moment – end of financial year for anyone in business, exam time for students, marking time for lecturers… Definitely a deserved break.

  7. Ken Parish says:

    We tried 3 times a week and simply found that it made the task of both reviewing and compiling too large and forbidding for each single edition. Doing it daily keeps it manageable, as long as most of us have a more modest amount of time to put in each day. When hardly any of us do it becomes problematic. I’m sure no-one will mind our putting it on ice for 3 weeks or so, and I’m equally sure that sticking with the daily format is the best option upon resumption.

    Take a break, Ken and Troppodillians; we’ll wait. It’s not as if there’s any real competition for you to worry about.

  9. TimT says:

    Its not as if theres any real competition…

    Cough! Cough!

    Pardon me. I have a slight viral infection. It’s called Selfpromotionus Inflammaticus. I’ll be all right in a few days…

    “Missing Link may drive MPs from power”
    Landeryou’s having delusions of grandeur again.
