  2. Blog from above :)

    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.

  5. Of Microscopes and Honing

    by , 07-13-2011 at 04:57 AM
    I remember when I was learning to hone; I thought I needed a microscope to know what I was doing. I had no reliable tests to tell where I was at in the honing process, and I believed the microscope would open the door to honing nirvana.
    It didn't.
    I remember being totally baffled, confused, and disappointed by what I saw.
    I had no frame of reference at that time.

    I wish I ...
