Kudos to Spike, who is writing his life story (I'm so Smart). I first read his old blog when he was being magnificently indiscrete about his life as a typical expat in Hong Kong - without taking much effort to disguise his identity. That had to stop, but I seem to recall that for a while his blog continued by invitation only, and then (wisely) he deleted it completely.
Then he settled down and restarted his blog - Hongkie Town in case you didn't follow the link above - and it is one of the few that I still read.
I have deliberately never written about my life, and I am not about to start now. But, in case you (1) care, and (2) haven't guessed, I'm just too busy at work to have the time or energy to devote to this blog. So I will continue with occasional posting. Next up (maybe) will be the car crash that is Windows 8.
