Site Updates: Furlough

Wednesday 14 March 2012, 11.07pm HKT


Dear all,

The Naked Listener’s Weblog will be on furlough in around two hours’ time.

When it happens, you will see only one static page (‘About’) instead of the usual front page of five rolling blogposts.

The full menubar will also be inoperable.

I have not yet set a date for coming back, but I should like to think it would be sooner than later.

As you can see, I’m not a person who likes to surprise people. BOO!

I am very, very pleased and touched by my readers and subscribers who have put in very caring and persuasive words for me not to close up this blog.


Like I say, it won’t be closed up, but on absence of leave. I need to do this to prove a point. The amended ‘About’ page will hopefully give you an idea of my ‘unhappiness.’ You can leave comments, criticisms and even hate messages there.

Readers, no need to unsubscribe. Leave it alone. It won’t affect your inbox or RSS feeds. If and when the blog is ‘re-animated,’ your still-active subscription allows me to send you site updates of the re-animation or The End of the World, whichever occurs sooner.

Come to think of it, your still-active subscription should also allow me to send you password-only posts during the furlough for which I will send you passwords in advance. I don’t know … because I don’t know yet.


Ladies and gentlemen, by the powers vested in me by myself, all of my readers are now promoted to ‘Programs’ from mere ‘human beings’ (if the human condition is anything to go by nowadays).

Thanks all, Programs! See you all later!
