The “First Post”…

Well, this is the “first post,” in the sense that it is the first thing that is published on this version of this site. It is, of course, far from the first thing that I have written… and I hope it won’t be long before it is lost in a long shuffle of posts soon to be written. I’ve missed writing.

As is probably implied, posts which are older than this one are imported from either superfloppies.tk or previous incarnations of my blog here.

It’s been some time since I’ve had an “open” line of communication with the world. I don’t know that I’ll be perfect about it this time, but I’ll try to do better. The blog will, of course, be the primary means of that. I also have an account in the ActivityPub fediverse using Mastodon, though most of what I say there is only visible to those who follow me.

Among other things, I am going to try to make maintaining this space a priority. I have several goals for this year:

Only time will tell if I manage to pull all that off. But I will try.

Alright, then. Hello. Again. I hope I’m sticking around awhile this time.

Thanks for reading.
