Two small notes…

This color scheme (*) is tentative, and I should mention that I’m mildly red-green colorblind. I’ve run it by Marie, and she seems to like it, but if you dislike it or have any suggestions for improvements, please leave a comment or email me.

(* It’s mostly dark green, with a pale green sidebar/menu, if the colors are long gone and this is in the archives.)

As a second note, this address (the main page of ) may or may not be a permanent URL for this site – I’m waiting for to become active, and intend for that to be the long-term address of this site, although in the short run that will just redirect back here until I can get some of the technical details worked out.

Welcome, though there’s basically nothing here yet.

I’ve been meaning to start a blog/journal for a while now… this election is giving me an ulcer (only metaphorically, I *hope*), and the mailing lists and newsgroups I’m on have only a limited tolerance for off-topic speculation on the topic.

Similarly, I expect that by being able to just post things here, I’ll be passing on fewer junk forwards, whether humor or otherwise. We’ll see how that goes, and ditto for personal announcements and news.

I don’t honestly know whether this will be of any interest to anyone who doesn’t know me, either in person or online. I’ve just spent too much of this evening installing and tweaking WordPress to really write much, but as the subtitle will say if I can figure out what to change to have it display, we should be seeing “Random musings, justifiable rants, and occasional News of the Weird.” Keep tuned in.
