racc archives

Well, one thing that all this organizational activity has done is that it's helping me finally do some things that I'd been putting off for way too long.

This morning, between other things, I started trying to catch up on the archiving of rec.arts.comics.creative. I'm sad to say that I hadn't touched that since the end of 2003, which means that I had over 1,700 posts to go through, weed out discussion, and archive into appropriate story directories. I was only going to do the first 300 or so and slowly catch up, but I got on a roll and in three hours got completely caught up.

I'd been feeling guilty about that for literally years now, and here it only took three hours to finish it off completely. Feh. Don't procrastinate! Now that I'm caught up, it should be much easier to stay caught up. I really do have the process mostly automated, so it's just a matter of having the mental discipline to do it regularly.

I've also now updated the racc FAQ and put out a plea for more contact information and imprint information to flesh it back out again. It's nice to be paying attention to the group on more than just a day-to-day post moderation basis (although I honestly probably won't get back into reading stories; I just have too many other things to read).

Now, if I can just push through the last things I have to do for a News::Gateway release.... Although that's again not quite on the top of my priority list. I have a few other things I want to finish off first.
