I’ve long eschewed any sort of ‘social networking’ technology (facebook, myspace, second life, twitter, etc.) because a) they’re useless, b) anything ‘social’ is severely at odds with my personality, and c) they’re often simply a haven for 12 year old girls and the 40 year old men that love them (see (a)).
Still, it seemed about time to finally create a blog for several reasons: a) I set up a blog for my friend Lee, and it would be kind of nice to be more familiar with WordPress if he has questions or problems getting it to work. b) I needed a convenient place to write down nifty discoveries and problem solutions that I may have to refer back to later. c) I already had a proto-blog of sorts back around 9 years ago when I was hacking Cuecats (will post a link to that as soon as I find the drive I have it archived on).
So after much wailing and gnashing of teeth (primarily due to figuring out how the heck to work with MySQL – I still view databases of any sort with much disdain, open source or not), this thing finally seems to be running. We’ll see what sorts of grand, sweeping thoughts of truly visionary insight I’ll expound upon. That, or maybe just a halfway funny fart joke now and again.
