I've spent a bit of time today importing my old blogs here-- if cutting and pasting could be considered "importing", anyway.
I was very surprised and happy today to find that I actually did not lose all the content from my old blog. Older than my last blog, which content I have not re-posted yet (as there was little), but of my last last blog when I actually blogged. Apparently this was back in 2008, as the dates show. Nonetheless, I decided to repost them for prosperity's sake, plus I still get lots of hits for the links. Just if you do read them, take note they are older, possibly deprecated, and that I'm a bit older and hopefully a bit wiser these days.
So I apologize for the formatting of the older posts. I wonder if Drupal 7 / Gardens has something to make the code show up properly and colored... hmmm.
