After giving the matter a great deal of thought, I have decided to change direction professionally. I am not exactly retiring, in that I'm not giving up work entirely, but I am altering the course of my work life quite dramatically. As a direct result, I shall be retiring this blog. On the 7th of August 2014, this blog will be removed and will no longer be accessible online. There has been such an increase in visitors to this blog since its creation, and I thank everyone who has visited regularly over the years. But it is time to say farewell.
