After several years of maintaining (or rather ignoring) a 1990s-style personal web site hand-crafted using HTML, I decided it was time to join the modern Internet era and refactor the content to a blog style site. It was a relatively easy albeit somewhat tedious effort requiring a small amount of re-formatting and a couple hours learning WordPress basics. I will confess that I did very little content editing so whatever was posted on the old site is reflected on this site. Content updating is on the to-do list for 2010. On the positive side, these updates will now be painless and I might even be inclined to make the occasional blog entry if a topic moves me enough to commit the time and energy.
