Anyway, as soon as AT&T gets me the set-up disk for my new dial-up (grrrr... Winstar has got some NASTY karmic backlash coming its way), I'll have the new site up. It will initially have all the poems done so far in 2001, the poems from 2000 (I started trying to write regularly again back in October ... as far as I've been able to find, I only wrote 1 other poem all that year, one of the "haiku challenges" from ANA2's Under the Bed), plus the smattering of things written (most for ANA2, some on the road) in 1999, and 1998 (which were the poems I was trying to convert last night). THEN it's getting into the back files. I wrote 250 poems a year from 1987 to 1997, typically 21 a month. I guess I'll just take that a month at a time ... if I can get a month converted to text, set in HTML, and up on the web (with its "month" screen ... you'll see the structure when it's up) each night it will only take me 144 nights to get through the current disks. There are fewer poems per year prior to 1987 (but there are still 1,000 poems from 1976-1986) so that might go a bit faster, but I think I'm in for a good YEAR of solid on-going editing to get this poetry site up!
By the way ... if this excites you (yeah, right), you CAN get groovy imprinted items at http://www.cafepress.com/btripp ... although they have the old re-direct address (which I'll probably still use to go directly to the poems) of http://i.am/btripp in the graphics.
