Interesting, I can see the need for being able to have conversations in comments (and have everyone notified that a new reply has been added!) now. Actually I could before, but I'd really liked to have used such a feature for this response… Oh well, consider it the next job on the list for me 🙂
Anyway, to answer the comment Audstar posted regarding Kabarty no longer being in operation. That is indeed true, Kabarty is winding down AS A HOSTING COMPANY. Ultimately, Kabarty will cease to exist, and there's some work to be done with the accountant to work out how DearDiary can be transferred to Rose and myself privately with minimum tax implications. But DearDiary will continue to be operated by Rose and I even after Kabarty is officially no more.
So don't panic 🙂
I don't want to get into religious discussion particularly on this diary, but suffice to say that over the last 11 years I have had enough comment and insight shown to me to indicate that DearDiary will never make me rich (this side of heaven) but the service to God that is enabled through this site makes it compelling (and given my Christian beliefs, just about obligatory) to continue regardless. The recent and very sad passing of Pragmatist serving to show me just how important this website is to the people who use it. And thus, as I am no longer in the IT industry but now serve God through caring for the sick, I am in an even better position to understand just how important a site like this can be.
You can rest assured, until the Lord takes me too (and probably even after that!), DearDiary will be here for you. (Incidentally, I rather hope the Lord has no plans to take me for at least another 40 years – and possibly longer).
