As you may have noticed ;-) I haven't updated anything in about two
months now. My recent move was a large factor in this; however, I have
also been reassessing the overall usefulness of the IW&A project under
its current format. I have been forced to reconsider whether it makes
sense for me to continue IW&A on the same basis without any meaningful
and secure funding. For over 3 years now, it has been a time-intensive
labor of love of basically one man only... It's also been
disheartening to watch Iraq fall apart at the seams, with no
improvement in sight. You could say that I was a bit burnt out...
Nevertheless, I'm not ready to just give up. As always, any ideas or
suggestions are welcome!
