My Instructions

It has come to my attention that some instructions I posted about four years ago are in need of revision. I appreciate the attention given to this post by the authors, and I wouldn’t even want to notice that the dead link they identified was moved by the same organization that one of them works for, because what kind of precedent does that set?

In all seriousness, I am sure that the container models that Hathi now provides are more reliable ways of performing these kinds of tasks. I look forward to doing more of them myself in the coming days that are ahead. I am very familiar with bitrot-related issues, which prevented me from even updating this blog yesterday when I intended to for nostalgic reasons. How-tos are very difficult to future-proof.
