Very, very true. The original Bellian digest might come out every month or few months. It had good gameable content, but overall probably less than appears in this Daily over the same period of time.

I'd be happy to set up a glorantha-game (or something) list distributing out of, but it'd require an editor to either (a) dig through digest posts for the ready-to-game-bits, and sometimes edit them a bit more -or- (b) beg for ready-to-game-bits as necessary. Just digging through all the old dailys since the old digest you could come up with years of content, even organizing it by subject, but it'd take time. If anyone would love to do this, or alternatively thinks it's a terrible idea, feel free to drop me a line.
