Oh! I didn't see you there! Well... Re-Hello World!

This is my first post for what is admittedly my second "real" blogging experience. It has been about two years now since I have been posting regularly. Every time I say I will be more diligent, I don't quite follow through writing-wise. I have been working hard on the blog in the background though. This is the first sign and more is to come.

Out with the old, in with the new

The old blog had several outdated entries. Those were mostly entries about things I don't know and don't care whether they are true anymore. The remaining out of date posts were inane diversions or filler posts. You really don't need to see my babbling about Game of Thrones or my poorly formatted driver installation instructions. It was time to reduce the noise and up the signal. I want to be writing more long form piece here and have each count.

The outdated posts were removed and only a select few long posts were kept. This is a new blog that has been in the making for a couple of months now. It is powered by a new blog engine written from scratch (more on that later), so it deserves better content. The kept posts were all annotated with the following headline:

EDIT: Hello from the future! This post is part of the old blog. That means it may be deprecated. However, I deemed it valuable enough to keep around. The new blog starts here!

This allows for the image of the phoenix rising from its ashes to make any sense. If you don't see its previous life, you can't tell that it is rising again rather than simply being born. I won't edit these older posts much as they are representative milestones of the progress made.

Looking forward

I am not setting any goals yet. I want to use this space to write and tinker that is for sure. In the near future I will continue working on the infrastructure behind the blog. Then, some long form pieces will start to drop. I have been accumulating some experiences in the past years that I want to outline in written form.

Here is to honouring the past in order to better charge into the future!
