Restoration Comedy

Just grabbed an ancient copy of the Tinderbox document that generates this weblog in order to get the notes from 2001-2008 back into the main document. Mostly, everything seems to work. 7,114 notes and 1 million words used to overtax Tinderbox, but now things seem to be fine.

When I pruned the document in 2011, John Gruber was writing about the iPhone 4. President Obama was winding up the war in Iraq. The King’s Speech had won Best Picture. The Sense of an Ending won the Booker, Connie Willis’s Blackout/All Clear won the Hugo, and the Packers beat the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
