Let’s have another go at this


Ok, so here's how it is. Every so often I have a hankering to start this here site / blog back up again. I have thoughts, you see. Some of them are intelligible. Most are not. I want somewhere to put them when they are, though. Twitter just doesn't always cut it.

So here we are again. I'm using my old Pelican site, still hosted on Webfaction - partly because I've been paying for it all this time so might as well use it. Mostly because I don't have the time to sit and migrate, recreate and generally mess around like I used to. This already exists, though I may fiddle a bit. We'll see.

Content won't be regular. It won't be on set topics. It won't always be...interesting, probably. So be it.

A note on why I decided to wipe the existing posts. Well, all but two. We'll come to that in a minute.

For starters, I wanted a fresh start. There was some giberish here before. Stuff posted for the sake of posting something. I don't want that, nobody wants that. There are, however, a few posts that were worthwhile, and while they are out of date in a few ways, they do get some traffic. The biggest of those is the one post that still exists - the post that was linked to by Marco Arment of Overcast, ATP.fm and Instapaper fame. That's not the kind of URL you want failing when people try to reach it for reasons that will be obvious if you read it.

You should, by the way.

I might be adding a few more posts back in - one or two that seem to be getting hits at the moment, for whatever reason - tidying the tags and such as I go. There won't be many, though.

So here we are. Hi. /waves.
