Warning: This is a really old blog backup, and a lot of my attitudes weren't realy that great back then. I've changed significantly since then, so some of the things I may have said back then were somewhat problematic. Try not to think too poorly of me reading this old mess.

And now I’m back to WordPress! - June 10, 2016

It’s like I’ve come full circle or something. And I even kept all the old content, including all the crap I banged into the original WordPress blag I had running on AWS hosting, later moved to Google Compute, then on again.
