Here we are, full circle back at Blogger where we started 3,770 Posts and 11,082 Comments ago.
When I left here there was no commenting, and the templates numbered about 5. Thankfully they have improved, a bit, and slowly. They still are not perfect, but they have improved considerably.
I've been using Cold Fusion over at Prairie Fusion and then Wordpress when they turned over to that system. It's a good system and I really have very few complaints if any at all. But at the end of the day maintaining the site and databases, backing up etc. is something I'd like to not have to deal with any more.
And the pain of the change is not lost on me. I realize all the links will no longer work, inside the blog for itself, and external links. I am sorry about that, but maybe that means that the rugged followers will join us here.
I expect that using a system maintained by a larger company can mean I won't have to do this again and I can just worry about content for a good chunk of years now.
Now, if you are still with us, welcome.
Let's see what the next years bring.
