Hi. I know, I know, but it has been lying fallow for sometime now, and one day I just got a wild hair and took a scythe to it.
All of it.
And it felt good to just throw it all away. Damn good. Huzzah.
Of course long-time visitors may recall there was a lot information here, of various types and descriptions -- from my deepest and sometimes rather darkest thoughts, to how to get Linux and WinDoh!s to work together. There was lots of work-related writing as well, everything from -- relatively! -- recent semiconductor crap, to a blog I kept while meandering about China in 2005, to scans of crap I wrote in the '90s. And don't forget all those lovely photos.
But now it's all gone. Every last bit, figuratively and literally (get it? Bit? Never mind ... sigh). So sayonara to this blog. Toodle-loo. See ya in the funny papers.
Alas, poor blog! I knew him, Horatio, a fellow of infinite jest, of most excellent fancy. He hath bore me on his monitor a thousand times, and now how abhorr'd in my imagination it is! My gorge rises at it.
Heaven forfend I bid adieu and not borrow from The Bard. A blog of most excellent fancy, indeed.
So I've got something different in mind for this space. What that is, I'm not exactly sure; I've just been ... well ... wondering. I won't say when, exactly, either -- we all know how that goes with me, deadlines and whatnot -- let's say before the spring of 2021 -- isn't that a Rush song? RIP Neal Pert -- there will be some new goings-on here.
And lest you feel the need to reach me: jchappell68 at yahoo. And no, the new whatever-it-is will not involve any sort of social media, so don't ask.
