This will be the day that I die

Well, not me, probably not today. (That said, you should probably consider me at least marginally suicidal for the duration.) But I’m wondering if there’s an accepted protocol for one’s Last Post Ever — or if it’s better just to let things grind to a halt. I’ve been on both sides of the issue at various times; now I’m just confused.

    I dunno. I wish there were some kind of “dead man’s switch” that blogs had – for example, all the people wondering about Steven Den Beste and how it actually took a call to the POLICE for something to be found out.

    I dunno. That’s one of the things that haunts me. At this point in time, if I fell off the face of the earth, people would know I was gone because the stuff I was “supposed” to get done wasn’t getting done and they’d be angry with me for not doing it. But I wonder about the future, after I retire. (I don’t not have cats JUST because of my allergies….)

    What will be weird about my blog is that it’ll still publish until March 2017. I have at least 20 posts pre-written before that. And it’d be on Facebook and Twitter too.

    Mrs. McG doesn’t have my passwords. I’ve given thought from time to time to how I could make sure she can get them if she needs to, but there’s something kind of awkward about asking one’s wife to delete one’s browser history.
