I thought I should make a comment on this post. This was a really interesting post, and in my mind much more the sort of quality posts that you used to make in years gone by. I had started to check your site only every few weeks lately, but I can see myself checking a lot more frequently again now. (disclaimer - I find the PUA stuff painfully boring to read about. This could/probably is the biggest reason I had stopped checking your site frequently. Equally though, I am sure that lots of people love the PUA stuff, and those readers probably love the posts I hate and vice-versa). You can't please us all, nor should you try.
Cutting your 7 boxes down to 1 resonated with me. I recently did that. Scanned and photographed all the old letters/journals/etc that I had wanted to keep. Quite a relief not to have the physical boxes of stuff around any more.
A quick note about SETT - I like it, and I think it holds a lot of promise. Currently it does seem quite slow across browsers. Not sure if this is a function of the server hosting it, site design, a combination, etc.I hope it keeps improving though because I think it could be really great once the wrinkles are ironed out.
