Soft launch

21 09 2010

Well here I am. Back in the land of the Blog. Apparently it’s been 6 years (holy crap) since I last did this.

It was 2003 when I started blogging, back when people asked ,”What’s a blog?” Back when people had to own their own server, load one of two blogging software packages, and publish themselves on their own URL. Now it takes just a click of the mouse for one of many free blogs. I’m not whining, it’s awesome. It’s simple. Even an idiot can have a voice.

I remember spending days working on new layouts. HTML,  unclosed <tags, images in the wrong place and code referencing the wrong folder.  We had cyber-stalkers and heel faced spammers. It was frustrating, yet fun. It was years ahead of anything like MySpace and FB.

Just for kicks I have loaded what I could find of my old posts from 2003 and 2004. They should prove both and interesting read for both of us. A quick skim shows a bunch of posts with missing photos that used to be linked to my own server. Sadly it would take me a significant amount of time to re-link the photos providing I could even find them, sooo it’s probably not going to happen.

I remember having odd ramblings and being a bit of a button pusher or “Troll” (someone trolling for comments). Again, should prove for some interesting reads.

Well for now, this is just going to sit here. Eventually, and perhaps even tomorrow, I’ll post my first official erm, post and link it for all to read.

Until then, Cheers1
