After several days of off-and-on development this blog is finally live. I set my deadline as New Year’s Day and this post will hit the site at about 11:45 ET January 1, 2006. I’m cutting it close, but I made my deadline.
In a larger sense, after 10 years in of doing off-and-on Web development I’ve finally invested myself in a non-work related Web site. I think the motivation has come partly from my recent move to New York, which has stimulated me into action, and partly from the renewed developments in technology. There’s a lot of interesting stuff happening and I’m tired of feeling like I’m on the sidelines.
I’m proud to say this site uses the newly-released WordPress 2.0. I installed 1.5.2 on my Web host’s servers a couple weeks back and installed onto my PowerBook at about the same time. 2.0 came out in the last few days and I was able to upgrade both my PowerBook and the host’s server with no drama at all. The WordPress team deserves a medal.
There’s more work to be done. If something doesn’t work rest assured I will catch the issue and fix it within the next couple days.
