A Fresh Start

I could come up with a story about how I wanted a fresh start and felt “deleting and starting over was a good idea,” but basically, I did something really stupid. Shame on me for doing something incredibly stupid. Shame on me for not having backups. Basically my blog postings on www.phoneboy.com are gone–two and a half years worth of blogging into the bit bucket.

Actually, that’s not entirely true. Since I use a private version of Reblog as an RSS reader, my posts from June 2006 onward are backed up. This gives me some sense of recent history. I also have postings from when I ran my website on TWiki. However, those postings are likely of dubius value these days.

In any case, since I have to do a fair amount of “starting over” anyway, I have decided to try a different CMS system. NucleusCMS was okay, but I really wanted to give Drupal a shot because it will make it easier to do certain things I want to do later on.

Meanwhile, it’s going to take me a while to get the site looking and functioning the way I want, not to mention adding in the content, so bear with me for the next few days. If you’re bored, you can also look on my personal blog over on Vox.
