  1. What was the honing accreditation idea, and why did we kill it?

    by , 09-12-2011 at 01:12 PM
    Another oldie but goodie that keeps coming back from time to time, like a piece of sour salami. The issue itself is rather boring, but if you want to get an idea of the concerns we have to keep in mind, this might be interesting.

    The idea

    I don't remember who first came up with the idea. On a basic level it was very simple: Some people hone razors for other people. Those other people might not know whether the person doing the honing is any good. The idea was to set ...
  2. Inter forum rivalry

    Perhaps a rather touchy subject to be writing about, but let's be honest, the world is not all sunshine and rainbows. And if I am going to write about running SRP, I can hardly pretend that this subject is not a big elephant in the room that noone usually talks about. To be honest, there is a reason we don't usually talk about it.

This little question will be at the root of every decision you will ever make. Failing to have a clear answer will mean your decisions will sometimes hinder or outright ...
  4. Blog from above :)

    by , 07-14-2011 at 07:44 AM
    At first I didn't think I would use my blog. I am not a collector, don't have much gear, and in all categories there are people with more expertise than me, so what would be the point, right?

    But then I thought about the one thing where I could say something useful: SRP itself. I can write about the way we run things, and some of the concepts and principles that guide us in the decisions we make. The forum itself is not the proper place to do this. This blog is. Or at least it can ...
