A long time ago this was a real web page, updated once or more per day. By multiple people, even! At some point, it probably turned into a blog, because every website had to be a blog by about 2004 or so, unless it turned into a social media site somewhere around 2007. The aughts were hard to keep up with.
Those days are past us now, of course. For a bit I had all of my twitter posts being mirrored here as news updates, but then that integration broke and I didn’t bother to fix it. Then the custom theme we wrote way back in WordPress 2.0 stopped working, so I swapped in a theme that was reasonably close. Then that broke, but I didn’t fix it for over a year. And when I did fix it, I fixed it by abandoning the color scheme Jux used since 2002 by installing the default WordPress theme and leaving it that way.
I think it’s time to put this to pasture. Will I ever blog here again? Perhaps. It’s not beyond me. But if nothing else, I feel it’s time to stop pretending this is somehow the same place it always was, with a bunch of friends sharing content, actually bothering to update. It’s just me, Graeme, now. It’s been just me for a very long time. I see no reason to not change the site to reflect as such. I think the long period of half-broken appearances was enough of a memorial period.
The old content is still there, but there’s no more recent posts on this here homepage. If you bookmarked something, go nuts. I don’t plan on ever purging it entirely, although I also don’t plan on putting any effort into keeping it up to date, so who knows what will happen to it now. Benign neglect.
New content? Doubtful. I’m on the social medias of various types, like the kids are today, and that’s good enough for now. Wife, kid, career, all take precedence. This domain remains my home on the web, but it mostly hosts things like email now, or specific events on subdomains.
Until we meet again, strangers. Lovely to see you, as always.
