This Month has been Tiresome and Tedious. Ending monthly work day schedule early. 😶

Tomorrow (Monday) will most likely be my last official work day of this month. That being said, my latest Arthurian Legends blog article submission will be completed by month’s end. It is my hope that I will resume the next month’s work schedule on Sunday 6 September. I make no guarantees. I will do my best. Only 59 of my remaining sources require incorporation into the Grand Bibliography, which presently stands at 2651 sources. Hoping to “freeze” that bibliography soon. There are still some “sources” that require combination with others under single headings. This is particularly true of both web-based sources and multi-book sets. The Manuscript has 1388 pages. That, too, shall be edited down over the course of the remainder of this year and into the next, while various quotes and citations are sorted. There are a few “Mediæval Texts” of which I have cited, but are yet to be in my possession in the form of complete physical and/or digitally scanned copies (for completeness-sake). I had never dreamed that this project would be so completely overwhelming in and of my life. So, until my next post, my True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

Technology Transition Issues, but still accomplished Tasks. 😃

At the end of spending multiple days transferring over 2TBs of information, am finally where I need to be. It required a little “hoop jumping”, but now have the important pieces in place. 😄

Grand Bibliography has 2562 sources. Manuscript is 1375 pages. Tomorrow (Tuesday) is an off day. So, until Wednesday, 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! 😎

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! 😎

Tiring Last Work Day of the Month. 😣😠😢😶

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! 😎

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. 😎
