Already?

I have to say, having the site up for just a few days and already hit with spambots posting to the WP comment paths is kind of humorous to me. It means that my site is visible somehow. A quick search shows that Google crawled the site already.

Back in 2000 I had to work to get my site(s) into search engines, now they find you. And if they can find you, so can the other bots. Fine, I’ll deal with it. I’ll give it some time before I end up disabling comments because all I see is trash.

A new home

Welcome to the new site. OK, first version of the site for this domain. You may never have visited any of my prior sites, I’m actually a bit surprised you’re visiting this one, but I have created dozens of sites over the past few decades. Usually via writing the HTML directly. This is the first time I’m using WP to create a site, so expect it to be extra generic.

This site has a simple purpose: to host random stories that come to my mind and to serve as a non-github home for my open source projects.
