Future of this blog / Guide to Korean Characters

I'm thinking of pulling down all but my 'favorite' posts. There is a lot of just stuff here, but some posts I think were important. So, over the next while, I'm going back through and reading everything I've written and decide what will stay and go.

If there is something here you think should stay, let me know.

Also, many years ago, I helped create an online version of the basic Chinese Characters used by Koreans. Took about 6 months. I did it with Bruce Grant, an amazing American that lived in Korea for a LONG time. His Korean is spectacular, in fact, probably the best Korean I've heard spoken by a non-native. He depth of vocabulary is mind-boggling and his understanding of characters impressive. He wrote, A Guide To Korean Characters, the basis for our online version.

It has long since disappeared off the web, but I still have a version of it. If any are interested, I'm going to see if I can get permission to post it here. I think it could be useful.

Anyway, if any of you have any thoughts about this let me know.

Looks about a month of posts were lost... I'll see about getting them back, or not, oh well. The important things are I'm retired from blogging except for the occasional comment. The right people know what they need to know.
