“Many thanks to Michael Jackson for preparing this archive so well again, and many thanks in anticipation to Dave Burleigh. If posted today it will be in time for the British Library archive tomorrow (Dec. 9th 2014). If we miss the deadline it will be archived next quarter (March 9th 2015).”

We are very pleased with this. To begin with, the archiving is not the great honour which Ron imagines it to be. One has only to look at the range of sites archived to realize that it is just an update of the Government’s ‘mass observation’ experiment of the 1930s. Now, as then, they gather everything up – with no regard to quality – in order to provide a ‘snapshot’ of present-day life for use by future historians. The second point is that all of Ron’s nonsense is now ‘set in stone’; when he eventually becomes a public figure-of-fun he will be unable to play the Winston Smith and re-write his embarrassing blog. So keep up the bad work Ron!
