Something to Gnaw On

I say this all the time, but if you ever join the cast and crew here, you can tell everyone it's true: I write probably one-two posts a week which get drafted, never (well, very rarely) to see the light of day. The thing is, a lot of them are really good, they just don't come together the way I'd hoped - they're either flailing or too snarky or something - somewhere along the way, they fall apart and, for whatever reason, I can't seem to put them back together, but I realize there's something good about them, so I can't bring myself to throw them out entirely. The really bad thing about this is that I almost never post anything about the entry's subject; I always move-on, as though I'd actually covered the topic, and never do. This is why I'm forever saying things like, "I know I wrote about that, but I can't find it."

This week, it's Yahoo!

Now, Yahoo! is a big and broad subject, so I can accept my inadequacy at covering it, however the posts are all really good in parts. At this time, I'm thinking I may do a hack-job and cull one good, all-encompassing, post from the parts of the many, but also at this time, there's nothing to show for any of it.

Anyway, part of my point in covering it was to show you some tips and tricks to using Yahoo!, and I still want to do that. But because I don't know when, if ever, I'll actually work on the pieces already abandoned, I'm going to try to cover some of these things next week. Maybe over the weekend, depending. And, if things come to it, I'm going to do a post on Yahoo! power-searches later today.

Also, Happy Thanksgiving!
