I was checking referal traffic the other day and discovered that my illusory cones demo was picked up by Richard Hull at GitHub to be used as an example for programming enchiladas. I’m not exactly sure what that is, but it sounds delicious.
My server got zapped during a big storm this morning. Fortunately I know a few people with plenty of spare parts, and the power supply was the only thing damaged. I got lucky. Pardon me while I do some fresh backups, get a better surge protector, and change my shorts. Yikes.
I recently got a deal on a new desktop, so I’ve converted the old one into a server for hosting the site myself. Configuring the lamp stack for the web didn’t give me too much trouble. And moving WordPress was fairly simple. I also set up an icecast stream which you can listen to here. I’ll post specifics sometime in the near future.
Navigation has undergone some changes as well. Links for older and newer posts can be found at the bottom of the blog page and below each individual post. The archive and tag cloud page has been removed for the time being. That’s all for now.
