Blog history

I’ve maintained a few personal blogs over the years. And now, they have all been imported into this domain. I’m certain there were import problems here and there, so any old entries prior to 2010 or so (I have entries going back to 2002, some of which are private) may not be formatted correctly. Certainly older images are missing.

It’s quite interesting looking at over 15 years of writing all in one place. Of course, I used to blog much more heavily than I do now. Ah well… it is fun to browse through. Enjoy.

Back from the dead

This site had been hacked; apologies if it affected you in any way. Looks like it’s been salvaged, so perhaps I will post here more regularly now. Time will tell.

Hello, and a Kobo

Welcome to my new blog. I’ve kept blogs before but this one will be a bit different. The more time goes on, the more disenchanted I become with facebook, so I will be posting here more often, with these posts automatically feeding onto my facebook wall.

I’ve been reading more lately, so it’s only natural I want to write more. Perhaps this blog will see some of it.

Speaking of reading more, I had a kindle a while ago but it died. I had to fight amazon to get them to replace it, they finally did, and the replacement died within a few months. No more kindle for this guy. Besides, I am not a fan of locking units full of DRM and other such nonsense.

So, today I ordered a Kobo Touch. It looks to have even more functionality than the Kindle, and it supports several additional ebook filetypes (mobi, epub, pdf, etc etc). And it has the eInk screen which I find essential to keep eye strain under control. I’m looking forward to getting it soon.

WordPress migration

I’ve migrated this blog over to WordPress! It contains everything from both the old Blogger edition of, as well as my first blog at, all hosted locally. These old blogs will continue to be hosted on blogspot (the old blog is now here).

I will be tinkering and reconfiguring this blog moving forward, both in terms of apperance and content. You have been warned.

UPDATE: The banner image is from a shot I took at the ruins of Glastonbury Cathedral, looking up at the Tor, when I was in the UK in 2005.
