I was hoping that last Thursday's combination of little hacker-relevant trivia and increased demands on my time would be one of a kind, but it's turning out to be unfortunately common. The first three days of this week (the 19th, 20th, and 21st), in fact, have so little interesting trivia in their history that putting together Hacker's Almanacs for them was starting to look like pulling teeth.
So, rather than abandoning the project all together (as is my tendency), I've decided on a new strategy: I'm just going to do them when they'll be interesting. For this week that's Thursday and Friday. This way, I'll have more time to write other kinds of posts and more time to make the Almanac entries I do produce that much more interesting.
If you were really enjoying the daily routine of the thing, I'd be perfectly glad to read and record (or just package up and post) entries that anyone else puts together.
