In 2009 and 2010, I was partially distracted by getting married and staying married, as well as long hours spent on my open source library, DDMSence. I once considered dropping down to four or three updates a week, but realized that such a move would eventually lead to zero updates a week. In addition, Doobie wisely remarked that five updates of crap were better than four slightly better updates. I continued to follow the previous edition's template for deciding what to write about (Newsdays, requiring more research, dropped to near zero), and also spent the blizzard of 2010 indoors migrating my photo albums to Picasa.
The Fifteenth Edition of the URI! Zone saw no cosmetic changes or powerful features -- just a determined struggle to maintain my regular update schedule in the wake of overtime work and open source coding. In August of 2011, I had succesfully kept the blog updates alive for ten solid years (give or take a few summer months off!).
The Sixteenth Edition coincided with another crunch period at work, reducing the amount of focus and energy I had to devote to the site. I made a few tweaks behind the scenes to keep the blog posts manageable, but added no massive improvements.
