First Official Work Day of November 2021.

Still immersed in that Mythology Dictionary from two months ago. I may indeed have to add another year to the publishing schedule (Introduction volume being published in June 2024 instead of how it is presently listed on the website as June 2023). We shall see how things go after the first of the year. Until next month, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Data Issues Resolved. Work Progressing. 😁

After 17 days, 5 trouble tickets, 20 people, 4 supervisors, and 1 manager; my data problems are finally resolved. Bottom line: MetroPCS sucks. 😠

Back to 6 January 2018 in my emails. Grand Bibliography has 2367 sources. The Manuscript is 1320 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. So, until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Accomplished a bit. 😐

Grand Bibliography at 2360 sources. Manuscript is 1320 pages. Tomorrow (Saturday) is an off day. So, until Sunday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Another Slug-A-Bug Day. 😐

The Grand Bibilography has 2353 sources. The Manuscript is 1320 pages. Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

A Sluggish Work Day. 😐

The Grand Bibliography has 2350 sources. The Manuscript is 1318 pages. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. Until Wednesday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Ongoing Data Issues, Not Much Accomplished. 😠

Spent 6 solid hours talking to 9 different people at MetroPCS, including 2 supervisors and 1 manager. Problem is still not solved. All of my data is still being counted as hotspot data. Very frustrating. This has been going on for 11 days. By the 14th day, if it is not fixed, both MetroPCS and T-Mobile will be reported to the Better Business Bureau and the Department of Consumer Affairs. 😶

The Grand Bibliography has 2348 sources. The Manuscript is 1319 pages. Tomorrow (Monday) is another work day. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Technical Difficulties.  😣

Windows 10 is acting up.  Should have the problem resolved by tomorrow, I hope.  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.  Sometimes various lists, notes, and other scribblings do not match.  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! 😎

Summary of Current Strategy ✌❤🚀

My most recent tasks during my work or “on” days have been an attempted balance between checking source content for my physical copies of texts (sometimes overlapping with having them also in digital form); locating copies of any kind (physical, digital, excerpts) for the Mediæval Source texts that require it; and attempting to finish sorting my old emails (which contain sources and/or source links). I wish to “freeze” the Grand Bibliography ASAP; but it must happen at a logical juncture. Things are moving way too slowly for my taste. As I get all of the ducks in a row for the entire project’s structure, things will move much more quickly (in theory). This is a culmination of over four decades of research. It is also the first time that literally all of my notes and research have been put in one place. It is truly colossal. I am here alone, so I must do everything that needs to be done. Today is a work day, so I need to accomplish tasks. Look for my regular blog post later. 😎

Still processing … 😳😱😶

The Grand Bibliography has 2137 sources now. Eventually, each of the sixteen (16) volumes will have a Bibliography for Cited Sources, and a Bibliography for Further Reading. The manuscript for The Introduction volume is 1282 pages. 😊

Tomorrow (Thursday) is an off day. Until Friday, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎
