Alan,

I thought of Beckett too when I read this, especially the lines

Yet I have not failed.
I have not failed yet.
Yet I will have failed.
Yet I will not have failed yet.

Of course you do set yourself up to fail when you set yourself the task
of publishing something online every day; I was thinking this when you
were having those exchanges with Annie Abrahams just recently; but the
inevitability of failure is an essential part of what you do, it seems
to me.
