About this site

The primary reason this site is here is for my education and amusement. I haven’t setup a website since the mid-1990s, in the dark and cold days when it was all raw HTML and text editors. Things have changed just a little bit since then, and I figured I should dip my toe back in. Also, the writing involved in doing this sort of nonsense should keep my skills up. Use it or lose it.

As I just said, this is also for my amusement. I don’t care about how much traffic it receives, nor will you ever see any sort of advertising here. If you find anything I wrote interesting or useful, then great, but that’s secondary to my purpose. Likewise, if you don’t like what I’ve written, then just go away. The Internet is full of Lolcats to entertain you.

You may notice there’s somewhat of a wide array of topic postings. I have sort of an ADD situation when it comes to interests, and my focus moves around a bit. Over time, I get involved in a lot of things, unfortunately usually not in enough depth to get really good at any one thing. Half assed jack of all trades, master of nuttin’. The upside is I can pretend I know what I’m talking about in a whole lot of areas.

I have no intention of making this a “blog” type site. You know, where some mentally masturbatory individual thinks so highly of their opinions that you, poor reader, are subjected to essays on why chartreuse is the best color or funny stories about their dog. I tend to deal more with facts, data and places that are out of the mainstream and not generally known. Any stories I present are done so with the idea they might provide an unusual or inside look at things. In general, I’m using this as a repository of unusual or obscure information that may prove useful to someone now, or in the future.
