I first thought of this round about December. It got shelved when I got hospitalized. Since I think of it every once in a while, I've decided to trot it out and try it anyway.
Just as an exercise, I'm going to try writing an article for each category in the JU forums. I say "try" because there are a couple that I have doubts about. For instance, "OS Customization." What do I know about OS customization? Another one, "Game Developers." Pffft. I haven't developed a game in nearly 20 years, and then it was on a Commodore 64. While I might be able to eke out something on those topics, there is one which is almost definitely going to be a bust: Tutorials, because if you look at the Tutorials sub categories (Theme Manager -> Suites, Blog Navigator Tutorials, DesktopX Tutorials, IconPackager Tutorials, Theme Manager, Wincustomize Tutorials, WindowBlinds Tutorials) they all deal with StarDock products, of which I have none. But we'll see. Maybe I can come up with a JoeUser tutorial and throw it into the general category.
I'm not going to count any articles I've already written. This is a from scratch proposal. Also, I'm not doing this in any particular order or with any time limit. I'm just doing it. (Go away, Nike, I'm not paying you royalties.)
There is the challenge. If anyone else wants to pick it up and try it too, here's a list of the top level categories from the forums (as of 12/11/05, when I first made the list):
TOPIC: Current Events
TOPIC: OS Customization
TOPIC: Home & Family
TOPIC: Personal Relationships
TOPIC: Sports & Leisure
TOPIC: Health & Medicine
TOPIC: Science & Tech
TOPIC: Gadgets & Electronics
TOPIC: Pets & Nature
TOPIC: Game Developers
Watchlist or bookmark this article. I'll return to fill in the article titles next to the categories as I go through them. Then maybe I'll leave a comment pointing to each (for those that might watchlist this).
