Computer Curmudgeon for Hire
Sometimes you just need a curmudgeon – the old guy who sits at the messy desk in the corner with his laptop (a Thinkpad, of course) and his coffee, knows the answer to almost every question, and is stubborn and patient enough to keep answering in six different ways until you understand it. He has lots of great stories about the way things were in the old days, but his browser tabs have titles like “ReactJS”, “Elm”, “What’s next for GitHub?”, and “Linux Weekly News”.
A Computer Curmudgeon is someone who gets annoyed at your computer so you don’t have to.
I have spent the last couple of days backfilling the blog with a selection of relevant posts from my Dreamwidth/Livejournal archive. By the time I was done this afternoon, I had a script that does most of the work of importing, and 20-odd new posts. (Well, old posts. New here.) A little manual editing is still required to correct the occasional tag that’s unique to the original blogging engine. They cover much of my recent writing on security, software, and the web.
The site is almost presentable at this point; I have started to bring over some blog entries/articles that were originally published elsewhere. Most of these were originally published in my personal blog, so they should be considered cross-posts. Articles that form a series can be grouped using tags.
Please excuse our dust; we’ll get the construction debris out of the way soon.
