My idea file for the blog has been running low lately and I haven’t had much time to fill it back up. I do plan on refilling it–sending off to Schenectady a la Harlan Ellison for batch of ideas. In the meantime, I thought I’d put a call for suggestions out to my wonderful readers to see if there is anything you’d like to see me write about here. Just drop your suggestions in the comments. And thanks again for reading!

More about your childhood.
I enjoy your posts about your reading lists – also i did not know about the Cemetery Dance editions of King’s books – I will absolutely pre-order The Stand if I can!
Love your book reviews and list. Have read so many of the ones I have read about in here.
Thanks for the kind words on the book reviews, Roberta. I probably don’t do these often enough and will try to include more in the future.
I enjoy reading about anything technical, up to and including the day-to-day of your working experience. I really liked reading about how you’re using Obsidian.
Chris, I’ll definitely have more on Obsidian in the near future.
In “playing the long game” you wrote that you plan to retire at about 59.5 years old.
I’d be interested in reading more about that. Why that particular age? What’s the plan to get there? What’s preventing you from retiring earlier, and do you even want to? I’d expect that someone in tech for 27 years would have lots of options 🙂
Itamar, thanks for the suggestion. This is an interesting one. The short answer to your question is that 59.5 years is the earliest I can begin drawing on my retirement without a penalty. Doing is sooner is unlikely because we have 3 kids and saving for college makes it difficult to consider retiring any earlier. That’s okay, though. I know that many people have to work much longer than this and that we are incredibly fortunate to be in the position to consider retiring at such a relatively young age.
There are so many Stephen King books I’ve lost track – could you do more on his books and which ones are the best to read – particularly the recent ones.
Would like to hear more about how you use Obsidian for tracking your reading (not so much the mechanics but what sort of thing to do you add to a note)
Paul, thanks for the suggestion. This is a good one!
Any thoughts or concerns you might have related to cyber security. Potential tips/processes you employ to protect yourself.
Steve, great suggestion. I’ve added this to my list. Back when I was writing about going paperless, I wrote a post about securing your digital filing cabinet which touches on security. But this post is coming up on 10 years old and it’s about time I wrote an update.
Steve, I’ve got a new post on this coming out tomorrow.
