If I don't post new material, it will be due to a serious cause, like ill health or death. Or, best of all from my point of view, because I am working. The period between May and November of 2015 was just such a case, where animation and design that I was doing for a game went into crunch mode and I was putting in more than 40 hours a week on it.
My blog is not only commentary. It often involves adaptation or creation of visual images specially for the blog, which takes time. A lot of thought and preparation go into each posting, because I want to be lucid and engaging and often instructive all at the same time.
If I have full-time work with deadlines, that takes away both from my blogging time and also from the energy needed to do justice to my blog.
So whenever I fail to post for a while, please don't give up on me. I'll return and probably pick up where I left off.
Thank you for your loyalty. I will continue to try to give you something new to think about each week or so.
