Tiring Last Work Day of the Month. ๐Ÿ˜ฃ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ถ

I managed to accomplish a variety of things. They occurred in a rather haphazard manner. Still, the Grand Bibliography now has 2448 sources. The Manuscript is 1311 pages. According to my Monthly Schedule, today is my last work day of the month. My next off day is tomorrow (Saturday 28 March 2020). It will last through Saturday 4 April 2020. My first work day of April will be Sunday the 5th. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Technical Difficulties.ย  ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Windows 10 is acting up.ย  Should have the problem resolved by tomorrow, I hope.ย  Meanwhile, this work day has consisted of continuing to organise my physical Arthuriana books and making sure that they are indeed part of the Grand Bibliography.ย  Sometimes various lists, notes, and other scribblings do not match.ย  Being OCD really helps in my ongoing efforts to make every aspect consistent. Tomorrow (Thursday) is still an off day. Friday is scheduled to be the last work day of the month. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

In the Ideal World …

… there are three of everything. I do my best in terms of adhering to that maxim. It is especially important to me when I find scans of rare and important texts. I do my utmost to have three of everything within that arena. I backup data to two separate locations. So today was mostly concentrating on having both physical and digital copies of source texts. ๐Ÿ˜

The Grand Bibliography has 2152 sources. The manuscript is 1284 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Despite technology malfunctioning, things have been accomplished

Suffice it to say that technology is either functioning or it is not functioning. I have ultimately triumphed. ๐Ÿ˜

That being said, I have shifted gears a bit. Currently at 1354 sources, 1204 pages. I no longer really have “total sources on the increase” as my work-day goal. It is a mix of a few new sources and being sure that I have digital, physical, or both of all existing sources.

I was also a bit side-tracked by my next two articles for the Arthurian Legends blog (he already has six of my previous articles still in the queue, scheduled to be posted in the Literature section over the next few months). I have begun the outlines for both of my newest articles.

These next two articles are Legenda Sancti Goeznovii (Legend of Saint Goeznovius), and Vita Sancti Cadoci (Life of Saint Cadoc). Please do not confuse the second one with Vita Sancti Carantoci, both the Prima and Secunda of it. Saint Cadoc is not the same as Saint Carannog (otherwise known as Carantoc). I will probably end up writing an article on Vita Sancti Carantoci (both Prima and Secunda) either next month or the month after. We shall see how everything else goes.

So, tomorrow (Monday) continues my dive into my email and the searching out of copies of sources to have (offline) at my disposal.

Until tomorrow, Excalibur! ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Very tedious day.

My ongoing goal is to track down full citations for sources that occur within already existing citations. I would say about 90% of the time that if I find accurate and complete source information, I also find a complete scan of said source at archive.org. Am I supposed to just get the info I need and not only verify the page referenced by the author I cited, but not download a wondefully scanned document in PDF?

I download it and add the complete URL for the download to my source description that appears in another source I already cited. Yes, it is like nesting Russian dolls. I am citing a source that sites a source who in turn cites a source. As I keep saying, I am very thorough. My OCD serves me well. ๐Ÿ˜€

So, as a result, I am only at 651 sources total, and The Introduction volume’s manuscript is 1126 pages. Time to export the PDF backup and copy one to my mobile as well. Yeah. It is my OCD that won’t let me be. I use it to be organised. ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€

More tomorrow, true believers. ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Excalibur! ๐Ÿ˜ณ
