So, um, yeah. About that...

I have noticed that the people who are late are often so much jollier than the people who have to wait for them.
— E. V. Lucas

After three false starts, one complete rewrite, a global pandemic, a lot of procrastination, some technical issues, and a medical shlebobble which will be named later, I have finally gotten the blog rebuilt (again) and relaunched.  The false starts and the rewrite all eventually got thrown away because I just wasn't happy with the direction they were going and really wanted to spend my development time working on added features instead of the base engine.

It's coming...

Person 1: Look! There in the distance! Something's... [wipes eyes in disbelief] ...um, something's moving!!

Person 2: What is it?!?

Person 1: I don't know. You -- you don't suppose...

Person 2: Oh no! Not that! God help us all.

What Tomorrow Brings

Never put off till tomorrow what you can do the day after tomorrow.
Mark Twain

Hip hip hello again, everyone! (OK — that was stupid.)

So here's what's been keeping me from posting on a regular basis. When I jumped back into writing a blog, there was a lot going on and my life was kind of a mish-mash of emotions and questions and uncertainty. I needed to get it out of my head and that gave me a lot to write about. And that drove the design and function of the blog platform that I created. It is very much built [……]

Goodbye Twitter - A study in noise reduction

I might as well go up and talk to a wall
'cause all the words are having no effect at all.
It's a funny thing. Am I all alone?
What are words for when no one listens anymore?
Missing Persons — "Words"

I was never a big Missing Persons fan back in the day but I didn't dislike them either. Their videos would show up on MTV now and then and they were generally part of the background din that was so much a part of the early 80s. (For any younger people who read this, MTV used to stand for [……]

Pause

Just an FYI - the blog is on hold while I deal with a medical issue. Hopefully I'll be able to think clearly enough to write again in a couple months or so.

Blog development update

Work on the blog continues.

Yes, I realize that you most likely don't give a rip.
No, that doesn't concern me.
Yes, you can sue me if you feel that strongly about it.
No, you won't get anything because I don't have any money.

So anyway.

On the front end, page titles are now getting generated correctly. Again, I'm probably the only one who really cares about that but it matters a lot for search engine recognition and analytics reports. The biggest addition that you will notice is that pagination is now working. Next on the agenda is to finally get comments working [……]

Where's My Head? : The Relaunch

Yes, you read that right, dear readers - all six of you. The Where's My Head? blog is back from the mostly dead. It turns out that, after spending WAY too long being seduced into Twitter's 140 character arms, that I really miss working out my thoughts and writing them out in a more long-form fashion. And seeing as how I'm wrestling with a lot of emotional and spiritual changes these days, I also really miss the catharsis of writing it out. And that's all this blog was ever really for anyway. It's really more my personal journal that I [……]
