False Start

I resurrected this blog with the intent of trying to write more – so far I have failed. I host this myself, so I worked on setting up fun things like a reverse proxy in front of it so I could use a single IP and redirect to different hosts based on the hostname, and making sure it was secure, etc. /geekmode

Once upon a time I used to make it a point to write every morning, before I’d venture off to work when I was a police dispatcher. Those posts at 0500 weren’t my best. I look at them back in the archives and I shudder. I have thoughts of deleting them all but I feel like that’s not a good idea. The ability to look back on things from your past and recognize that you’ve (hopefully) improved in some form or fashion. I hope when I look back at these current ones the reaction will be better.

Third Time’s a Charm

This is probably the third incarnation of this blog, dating back to the early 2000s when it lived in a form known as ‘LiveJournal’ ¬†and then migrated to WordPress, back and forth between hosts and finally just set to private and was largely forgotten for the last three years. I find it interesting that the last post I made was about being in Seattle for a job interview. I didn’t get that job in 2013, but I got one here midway through 2014 and so, here I am.

I am not entirely sure what purpose this site will serve, but here we go again.
