In May of 2007 I wrote the following introductory blog post:
[…] Whereas the previous main page was nothing more than a menu pointing to another list of text- and increasingly graphic jokes and humour, with the odd smitten of personal anecdotes thrown in for good measure, this new! improved! layout is still little more than a blog pointing to lists of text- and increasingly graphic jokes and humour, with more personal anecdotes thrown in for good measure […]
[…] it will, however, allow me to […] gather my thoughts, streamline my ideas, and organise my projects. As with all earth-shattering concepts, this remains a work in progress and the layout will, for the time being, remain as is, with changes and minor tinkering taking place as the mood or boredom strikes, or when some cool new widget and feature out there tickles my fancy. And, as with life in the biological and physical domain, nothing is certain but death and taxes.
Certain is that someday we’ll get our own domain and server space. Certain is that it’ll include a blog of some sorts. Certain is that it’ll include and feature content that can be seen here. Certain is also that it’ll include links and pages of mine that are spread all over free-hosting land – past, present and certainly future. How exactly it’ll all be tied together remains uncertain. Uncertain is also when this is all going to take place.
Well, it’s certainly taken place now.
The baby is alive and well.
We have us a basic front page with links to personas and profiles all over free hosting and web 2.0-land and various other sites of interest. The/this blog remains powered by Google’s competent free service (although WordPress is starting to look mighty attractive) has already been migrated to WordPress, and additional database-powered content will follow slowly and gradually. Lots of it.
The baby is hungry. It wants to be fed.
In hindsight, the introductory blog posting was rather prophetic.
