I just wanted to post and say that I am continuing to read and recommend current Torchwood stories, but I haven't been going through old stories as much and haven't been making themed lists. This is why the volume of the daily recommendations has gone down and why there have been gaps in posting.

Long story short, I'm adjusting to some medications that are making it difficult for me to concentrate on details, which is kind of what tagging stories is all about. (Plus, I've had a fever/cold this week.) I feel confident that I'll be able to maintain this holding pattern while everything sorts out and hopefully I'll get back into digging through the piles of older stories soon. Until then, take care everyone.

As is my usual custom, I'll be adding spoiler tags for the newly-aired episodes of Doctor Who, namely both parts of the "The End of Time." For those who wish to avoid--or seek out--stories that contain spoiler elements from those episodes, I'll be using the tag spoilers:theendoftime to refer to stories that contain spoilers from either Part One or Part Two. Please be aware that stories I've tagged on Delicious with the spoiler warning may also contain tags that in themselves may be spoilers. I'll also continue to use the spoilers:watersofmars tag.

For Twitter followers: Since some of the basic character information I usually share about stories can be considered spoilers in the case of some stories about "The End of Time," I will be using "Spoiler" in the place of some names. You can always find more information on my main Delicious page.

At present, I plan to keep the spoiler warnings in place for at least a month, possibly longer depending on when the main Doctor Who communities begin to relax spoiler standards.

Housekeeping notes: Due to a slight miscalcuation on my part (Tip: When planning the time to show up for a flight, be sure you're reading your departure time from that aiport, not your arrival time at the next airport), I got back a day later and a lot tireder than I thought I would. But I'm back in my routine now, and reading through the backlog of stories posted while I was away. I thought the holidays might be slow in terms of story posting, but this has, somewhat happily for me, not proven to be the case. I'm getting through about two days worth of posting a day, so I will, hopefully, be caught up in another week or so. I hope everyone had a happy New Year! :)

Just a reminder that tomorrow I'm leaving on a jet plane, don't know when I'll have internet access again (at least until I get back on January 3rd).

Have a great New Year, everyone!

Starting tomorrow, December 12, I will be traveling a lot for the rest of this month, and won't have steady internet access. I will be away from reliable internet service on the following days:

Dec 12-13 (Saturday and Sunday)
Dec 18-20 (Friday-Sunday)*
Dec 27 (Sunday) - January 4 (Tuesday)

*My daughter's winter break also begins on the 18th, which will mean that my days will be a bit busier than normal. :)

I may, possibly, have internet access during the last period, but I won't know for certain until I get where I'm going. The upshot is that daily service will be spotty until the first week of January, but after that things should return to normal.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

I think it's finally time to retire the "spoilers:childrenofearth" tag. It's been nearly five months since the episodes aired, and with most communities having already eased off their spoiler protection I think I can remove the explicit spoiler tag. I've renamed it to episode:childrenofearth. This way, readers will still be able to filter "Children of Earth" stories (the "torchwood:series3" tag, which in practice covers the exact same stories, will also remain.) I'm also going to continue to use the "nochildrenofearth" tag for those who want to avoid "Children of Earth" stories.

Speaking of explicit spoiler tags, I'll be using a "spoilers:watersofmars" tag for stories that spoil the new Doctor Who episode "Waters of Mars." If you wish to avoid (or seek out :)) crossover stories that spoil that episode, you'll want to keep an eye out for that tag.

Also, a reminder: I'm leaving tomorrow afternoon and will likely not have internet access until Sunday or Monday. We will return to your regularly scheduled recs then. Have a great week!

ETA for Twitter followers: Character limits permitting, I will continue to flag "Children of Earth"-related stories with "COE," but will be dropping the "Spoilers" label.

Sorry for the not-as-regular-as-usual reccing the last few days. I've had a migraine since Saturday, and all attempts to squelch it--including getting a shot of painkiller in a place that was not my arm today--have failed. I'm taking tonight off from reccing and tagging, and possibly tomorrow as well. Just wanted to let you know what was going on.

Also, while I'm interrupting the normal schedule to post things that aren't actual story recs, I'll mention that I will most likely not have internet access from Tuesday through Sunday next week. I may be able to squeeze in some posts over the Thanksgiving holiday, but if not you'll at least know that I didn't fall off the face of the earth.

Take care, all.
