Rarely As Expected!

An important part of entrepreneurship is embracing the unexpected, because things rarely go as planned in unchartered territory.

In short, I fear that my situation will once again compel me to postpone the production of Grammar Captive’s first completed podcast for still another month or even a full academic term.

In order to deal with the unexpected, the entrepreneur cannot sit idly by and allow the decisions of others to get in his way.  He must remain flexible and endure each and every hardship as it occurs.  Fortunately, I have little shortage of endurance, and long turn-around times from my host server has taught me the art of multi-tasking.  Here is the new agenda until I better know, if podcasting can begin as planned:

  1. Write a PHP class factory for PHPMailer that will allow me to use the same code for all email communication with “grammar captives”  including newsletter subscription email, newsletter delivery email, webinar sign-up and notification email, authorization email, confirmation email, password renewal email, and the like.
  2. Create a timed depository for data obtained from Grammar Captive’s custom Matomo server in an effort to speed up the rendering of graphs and data.  User’s simply have to wait too long to see what they want with the current set-up.
  3. Convert the images of the seven gates on the Grammar Captive podcast homepage into rotating blocks for the purpose of affiliate and sponsor advertisements.
  4. Implement the MeCab parser to enable Japanese the same ability to search the Grammar Captive archives in Japanese in the same way that others can search the archives in French, German, or English.

Headway in all of these tasks has already begun, and some are on the verge of completion.

Be on the look out for good things ahead despite any and all further postponements in production

Life is full of surprises, but you can quit at anytime. No one owes you a living, but your parents, and even they are likely to make your life impossible, if you are not grateful. Certainly you are free to decide to be or not to be. The choice is yours; it is your freedom of last resort. Strive to be better, strive to be happy. Survival is a first step. It is primitive instinct. Although human, it does not distinguish you from other animals. So, if it is all that you want in life, please do not be surprised when others treat you like an ordinary animal.
