A Note on Humility

Wednesday, December 17th, 2008

As mentioned before, I recently performed some major maintenance on the site.  In the process, I found myself reading through a lot of my old posts.  I found some to be really valuable in certain ways, but others I’m frankly a little disappointed in myself to have written.  I offer two examples, each of which featured […]

Migrating from Nucleus to WordPress

Monday, December 15th, 2008

Apparently the consequence for neglecting a blog for too long and failing to diligently update its software is that spammers will hijack it and insert invisible links to male enhancement products.
