Leave a comment

Between 01JAN2009-29SEP2011 was 1001 days. In that 1001 days I completed every goal on the list below.

October 2014 EDIT: Everything here has been completed and nearly all of the goals have at least one update. However, not everything is hooked up at the back as I imported these posts from a previous blog of mine. All the pages and updates for the big goals are fixed but I am still in the process of tidying up broken links and connecting up posts for the smaller goals over the next week or so, apologies if you find anything not behaving as it should in the meantime!
