Well, as you may have noticed, ROKRIOT is no longer a functioning blog. The basic reason is quite simple: time. As any other blogger will tell you, research, writing, and posting take time— LOTS of time, and more than I can handle with the needs of clients, developing passion projects, and, most importantly, family.
