TL;DR: The hat is back!
It has been over 10 years since I last wrote something on this blog. Some usual life stuff happened that I won’t trouble you with. The rain fell, but mostly, the sun shone.
After 5 years of letting the site rot I’ve just spent the best part of 2 days getting it back up, it’s had:
- OS upgrade;
- WordPress upgrade;
- but most importlanty a new logo!
5 years of rot has gifted me about 4,000 accounts created by SEO spam-bots so in a fit of rage I deleted all registered accounts. As far as I can tell there is very little spam (if any) on the site, which brings me to my next point.
I’ve disabled comments. I realise, a blog without comments isn’t really a blog at all. But the problem is, as the number of spam posts increase it becomes painful to moderate and so I don’t. Turning off comments is fairer to potential commenters, who might write a comment and never have it published. At least I’m saving you some time.
I’m looking into alternatives, but so far in all the usual places. Perhaps I’ll find something that addresses my problems with spam that doesn’t involve Google. We’ll see.
After all the work of getting the site up I felt like I should probably write something. I’ve been doing some interesting (to me) hobby research into knowledge engineering and separately, computer graphics and shaders. Alongside my day job of project management, there’s a lot of potential topics, and perhaps some of those musings will end up right here – in the hat.
To keep the pace up, the promise I’m making myself is that new posts will be shorter. So … let’s end it there and see what happens next.
