More about the site

I’ve had a blog for over ten years. It started out as a way for me to practice programming in Perl and later PHP, but I’ve made a lot of friends along the way and I have become (just barely) a better writer.

Version 1 of my blog was powered by a collection of Perl scripts using flat text files. Later, I created my own custom PHP/MySQL content management system. When I moved to New York (and had to give up hosting the site off my linux box), I switched to MovableType. In the summer of 2005, I migrated to WordPress, an open-source PHP/MySQL CMS.

The site is hosted at Hostgator.  I use EditPad and WebDrive to write & edit all my code.
