Diamonds In The Rough – Part X   2 comments

It’s been a long time – months – since our last edition of Diamonds in the Rough, the Special Feature that points folks to some of our favorite posts from the past.

Of course, there’s a reason that we haven’t done one of these for a while, and it’s something I’ve mentioned before. The simple fact is that we’ve gradually worked our way through all the older posts and had almost caught up to the more recent ones. But now some time has passed, so once again I have a larger pool and more fish to go after.

Hopefully you’ll like some of the catches below.
