asfaltics archive     0001             home

This page (begins to) lists my asfaltics tumblr posts, that began on 9 April 2011 and — according to tumblr — total 1,948 as of 11 April 2019. (Strange, my count comes to 1,998.) Not included here are any posts made “private” (and thus, practically lost). Posts on subsidiary tumblrs, including shedone (69 posts) and jama262468 (207 posts), will get their own respective archives in due course.

This is an ongoing project; navigation links at tops of individual posts may not work (file names need to be updated).

I undertook this HTML backup for several reasons —

  1. so that I can more easily bring my haphazard tagging into some consistency;
  2. thereby facilitating development of an index;
  3. to guard against the day that tumblr (or asfaltics) suddenly vanishes; and
  4. to facilitate production of a printed version of asfaltics (this is no longer an ambition).

I have been making small adjustments — updating links, adding and subtracting tags, &c. — to this HTML archive (but not — or only rarely — to the tumblr blog). Dates of — and links to — original postings are included in more recent backups, and eventually we appear in all.
