Hello World!

After nearly six months of puttering, I've finally updated the technology behind my website to be something more reliable than a text editor. This whole site is now based on Wordpress which, I must say, is a pretty sweet publishing tool.

The six months of puttering was due to the fact that I wanted to customize the entire site, convert all of my old content, but I only had scant minutes on weekends to tweak things. Anyhow, I am pleased with the results. Please send me a note if there is anything obviously broken.

Now that I've paid all of the "startup costs" for rebuilding my site, I am hoping that updates (in the form of new posts and pages) will come more frequently. Meanwhile, the existing entries (all of which were more or less written before I updated this site) are woefully out-of-date relative to my real life, so it will take some time to catch up.

I also note that the content here is very navel gazing. I find that I am more comfortable writing about people that write about me than actually writing about others, which lends to the narcissistic tone of this site. I'll try to correct that in time.

Finally, if you are curious about how I've put together this site, be sure to check out the colophon.
