In which I lament all those things...

That I wish could have been, but were not. I lament the year I did not know about the big ampersand site. I think of all the easy money I missed out on. Sorrowful sighs.. I lament that I am too lazy to go through my entire archive there, and delete all the short stories and such. I think the bubble is about to burst, and there may be no opportunity to get those articles back ever again. Which leads me to lament having typed some of them directly into the content box and not into a word processor so I could keep a copy. And mostly, I lament the wasted effort of those who oversee the ampersand, because it's so hard to understand why they don't see what everyone else can see. I will miss it when it's gone for good. I don't see any other future for it.

I've got all my posts saved elsewhere, because that's where I wrote them in the first place. I was very discouraged these last few days (that's why I came here), but things are better there today. I haven't given up hope, but it's hard to see how it can survive.

I have the same opinion of @valmnz, your lament is surely shared my many. I have decided that I am not going to lose more time to take out my articles. I have typed all of them into a word processor, if the site goes down, I can resurrect them.

its jest pitiful, the state 'f affairs there. i've not been able to do much 'f nothin' due to the application error 'n emails fall on deaf ears. i'm 'bout $4 bucks shy 'f redeemin' there after they took 'way nearly $65 with no explanation. not e'en an 'it sucks to be ya!'. i signed on earlier 'n after 3 responses to folks got the dreaded 'a.e.' 'n couldn't e'en sign out...'gain. most disheartenin'. on the plus side, i met a few folks there that i hold dear 'n 'll always be most grateful fer that.
