Metapost: A Posting Schedule Emerges?

Filed under: metapost — timbuys @ 5:48 pm

Hi everybody,

First thing’s first, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of spam that gets through the filters provided by the good people at WordPress. However, when it does, I have to admit to enjoying sending it to spam oblivion. A recent one appeared to be a fairly innocuous promotion of some video or another. Which, while I wouldn’t normally comment on it, provides truly flattering text about us posters and commenters that I found to be quite salutary. So, with that in mind, I hope all posters and commenters can hold their heads high when reading the following no doubt very sincere verbatim (weird line breaks and all) rendering of their compliment:

Right here is the right blog for everyone who wants to
understand this topic. You know so much its almost hard to argue with you (not that I
really will need to…HaHa). You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been written about for a long time.
Wonderful stuff, just excellent!

Yes, yes, indeed. That just about perfectly sums it all up. Good stuff!

Second, in the comments last Friday I think we got something like a posting schedule. Bearing in mind that I am absolutely not in charge of anything to do with this blog other than my own posts, it seems as though this is how we’re going to try and do it:

Monday through Wednesday: TimP (aka timbuys) – Note that Mondays look like they will always be a bit tough for me to do, but I’ll do what I can.

Thursday: teenchy

Friday: Rob – except when I get excited about something like Kaz having blue hair and forget… still sorry about stepping on your toes there, Rob!

Saturday: teenchy

I’m sure there will be some shuffling around as all of us do actually have things to do other than comment on Gil Thorp, but I think that’s what we’re unofficially going with for now.

UPDATE: Just to be clear, I’m pretty cool with anyone taking one of ‘my’ days. Frankly, it often comes as a relief when I see that I don’t have to come with something to say about some of these strips.



  1. Yeah, the spam filter is pretty good. Sometimes it made me feel bad that a post from billytheskink or one of our other resident Gil Thorp historians’ posts would get stopped, usually I think because they contained multiple links to the old strips. By the time I noticed them, sometimes we were on to the next day’s strip.
    Tim, I might be open to dipping my toes back into the waters here. Perhaps I could do Mondays and lighten your load a bit.

  2. Tim, as you say, you’re not in charge, so maybe I should just say, hearing no objections, I’ll post Mondays.

  3. Welcome back Ned. Glad to see you’ve found your muse once again.

  4. That totally works for me, Ned. Welcome back to the project!
