Well the first order of business for reviving this blog is to improve the blog engine itself a bit. I've not messed with this code in years, so it's a little frightening to delve back in. But it appears I've at least managed to add some useful features that might encourage more writing, to wit: I now have a "save draft" option so I don't have to choose between publishing something half-written and creating things offline and then forgetting where I saved them.
Now, you might ask why I don't just give in and install wordpress or drupal, or just use a blogspot account. I thought about it, I really did. But it seemed contrary to the spirit of my site NOT to use some clunky half-functional home-baked site.
I mean, look at it this way: would Han Solo have been nearly as cool if the Falcon had always worked perfectly?
