I get annoyed when I find an interesting blog that hasn’t been updated for months or years. Hmmm.
My last post was in January 2014, over two years ago. I just ran out of inspiration as unexpectedly as I found the inspiration to start. A lesser factor is my role as chair of the AS 2885.1 committee which is working on a major revision of the Standard. I did not want to appear to be pronouncing on matters that might be quite important to a revised AS 2885.1 but which are still unresolved (and Standards Australia has rules about that sort of thing). And a gradual but accelerating transition to retirement is relevant too because I know I’m getting increasingly out of touch with the latest practices.
Since this blog still gets several hundred unique hits per month and has over 300 followers I thought I should (very belatedly) do you all the courtesy of a (probable) closing post. I won’t rule out further entries but don’t hold your breath waiting.
I have been immensely gratified by the success of Pipelines Oz and its wide readership. Despite being written very specifically for the Australian pipeline industry it gets a surprising number of hits from countries all over the world. All that has greatly exceeded my expectations.
Thanks for reading!
