I registered this domain back in 2007 and never did anything with it. I figure it’s time I did something – anything.
I’ve been paying hosting fees for 10+ years, although my provider, NearlyFreeSpeech.net, has made this as inexpensive as imaginable. Yes, that’s a plug, and no, I didn’t get anything for it.
And so, it’s a blog. I’m so cutting edge.
Over the past six months, my interest in technology and programming has re-emerged. I’ve been programming again. Originally in Python, now I’m trying to learn C++. I’ve gotten hooked by KDE, a Linux-based organization that’s created everything from a desktop environment to an incredible range of pro-quality, entirely-free software. They’ve been around more than 20 years, so something good must be going on.
I’m going to try documenting my journey, sharing what I learn as I go. I’m only a year away from turning 50, but I’ve still got so much to learn.
And so I figure I’ll bore the rest of you with the ins-and-outs of a graybeard old dog who’s trying to learn new tricks.
