Where's the rest of the blog?
You may have noticed that there are no posts on this blog between July of 2004 and December of 2009. You may be wondering what's up with that--did I just stop blogging, then suddenly decide to take it up again? Well, no. In July of 2004 I switched to another blog host, Powerblogs, putting my blog on their site and their software. Unfortunately, they went out of business in 2009, and I resurrected my old blog on Blogger. But all my posts in those five years were never transferred to the old blog, and thus there's a long stretch between the two. The thing is, I still have all those posts, having downloaded the blog before the servers were taken down. They're just in a format that isn't easily transferred to Blogger in an automated way. And since many of those posts were on current events, and so are now hopelessly out of date and irrelevant, I haven't been particularly motivated to copy them over by hand. That said, I still like a lot of what's in the posts, so from time to time, starting on Wednesday, I'll be re-posting some of my favorites.
