Well, I decided that for November, I'd try to get 30 write-ups to survive, because I really don't have the creativity or energy for a novel. Turns out I'm not the only one, which is why there's an ironnoders usergroup and a page entitled "THE IRON NODER CHALLENGE".
I'm now indexed there. I'll post status updates (and links) here every 5 nodes, but if you want live updates, look up user "Windrider" on e2 and subscribe to my RSS feed or something.
I've fallen behind because I was busy voting Monday night and busy watching the game show that is the election system in the USA, but I plan to write two or ideally three nodes today.
