Is this thing on?

So meet the new blog, same as the old blog.

Uh, not really.

So for about the last half dozen years or so, my blog had been running on PyBlosxom, and hosted on a really cheap web hosting platform not to be named.

Long story short, one day the web host, well, disappeared, and PyBlosxom has never been updated to support Python 3. Running an unmaintained blogging platform written in an EOL programming language on a no-longer-extant hosting provider is no way to live, son.

So for now, think of this as a placeholder. It’s a bunch of static pages hosted on a Raspberry Pi, hanging off of a cable modem, to give an idea of my level of commitment here.

As of right now, that means none of the old content (which would need to be cadged together from out-of-date backups. the Internet Archive, and faulty memories), a default template, ugly fonts, and none of the fun sidebar crap I used to have fun with.

Hey, at least the main page doesn’t 404 anymore.
