A couple of years ago, the Pirate and I had a website built as part of a program that taught people website-building skills. We were excited to be able to get a cool new website while providing a service to folks in our own community. But, it turned out that all the big plans we had didn’t really pan out. Certain things, like putting pictures into the blog, ended up being a little more cumbersome than they should have been, so we didn’t use them.
On top of that, the comments thing became a problem. The CAPTCHA never worked quite right, so we turned it off. As a result of that, we’re being inundated with spambots that are posting dozens of spam comments a day that have to be manually removed.
It may take a while to figure out moving all my old posts over to this blog, but in the meantime, this is the new blog. Hooray!
