Saving Elsewhere

I’ve been saving a bunch of stuff in my Gmail because I’m think I’ll want it later or I haven’t gotten around to reading it yet.

Notwithstanding, I try to keep my mailbox to lower than 50 pieces of mail — the number that can appear on one Gmail page — every day.

So, instead of them making it difficult to achieve and maintain that goal each day, I’ve decided to post them here. When I want to use them — ift I remember that I moved/hid them here — I can come back here and find them (or not).

I’ll post when I e-mailed them to myself to show just how long it’s been since I’ve visited some of these sites.

From 12 APR 2007 at 10:47 AM, I have an e-mail titled “abu bakr,” which includes only a link to what I think was the writings of Abu Bakr (that seems logical) on the Combating Terrorism Center at West Point’s Web site. The link is now dead. Boo. Delete.

25 JUN 2007 at 3:44 PM: Saved e-mail from Joaquin to me that included a link sending one to a weird soundboard. Also a dead link. Delete.

4 SEP 2007 at 3:07 PM: An e-mail from me to a translator who was in the process of translating and posting on the Web his translation of Jaroslav Hašek’s unfinishedThe Good Soldier Svejk and his reply. He says that my timing was providential as he had just the night before finished books three and four of the novel and published them as an e-book. The Good Soldier is sort of the Catch-22 of the First World War whose protagonist is a soldier in the Austro-Hungarian Army. It’s a great book that I look forward to rereading. Link works! Yay! Delete.

More to come.
