it's been a long time -- like two years -- since i've written. i took the time today to move my blog to blogger.com, primarily because it looks like the hosting setup i had is going away, and i needed something quick, easy, and free. i hope you'll forgive me for the google ads on the bottom; maybe someday they'll get some traffic. i'm not holding my breath, but you know, anything is possible.
so far i like the service; it's clean and well-designed, and i don't have to hassle with update issues with wordpress. the gadgetry is functional and fast enough. and there is even a way to update by mobile phone, so i might even make some use of that.
