As some of you may know, even when I don't make a post for months I do still update this site. Typically this will come in the form of:
-- posts-still-in-production (drafts)
-- updates to an archive post
-- corrections (typically spelling) to older posts and
-- added links in the sidebars
The site is rarely, completely dead. Comatose perhaps, but rarely dead.
In such a way, over the last year, I added site links to Copper & Blue, PunjabiOil, Coming Down The Pipe, Copper Blue Dreams, Oilers Nation, The Cult Of Hockey, Hockey Reference.com, NHLSCAP and now, The Real Deal Hockey. There will be more I am sure.
I also added the archive sections to the blog.
The Quick Reference Archive links will take you to where I have posted information that I either:
a) access frequently or
b) got tired of looking up the hard way.
They are updated or added to as needed.
The Posting Archive links will take you to, what I call, 'portal' posts. A 'portal' post is where I stitch together (via link) a series of articles (posts) revolving around a single theme.
Of all the posts made on this site the one you may not want to miss is the one titled:
Edmonton Oilers HRDR v.2007
It is accessed through the Portal Archive. The full title would be:
Edmonton oilers: A Historical Review of Draft Results v.2007
Hence the 'HRDR' in the link. If you are attentive to quirks and vanities you will find that I tend to shorten listings/bullets to a single line. Looks messy otherwise (imo) and my writing style is sloppy enough as it is.
Also, you may note that I tag each article with a 'Have a great evening everyone'. First post I wrote was on the cusp of the evening hours and so, well, it stuck. Being a grumpy old white man I can only cross my arms in front of my chest, scowl, harrumf and say "Change is bad".
In case you are wondering: why now? Simple, it is so I can link to this post in the Posting Archive and maybe, by doing so, I can help new readers navigate the site. Finally, YKOil, is from Yellowknife Oilers fan.
I hope your visit here is enjoyable, and if fortune would have it, maybe even productive.
Thanks for dropping by.
Have a great evening everyone.
