I'm not giving up blogging in spite of having a full-time job and plenty to fill my leisure computing hours. However, any chance that I'll spend that time developing a Drupal-based blog or Website is just plain unrealistic. Despite the DailyRazor's excellent hosting services and reasonable cost, I'm pulling the plug and therefore, my oberononline.net domain is going into retirement until I can figure out what to do with it. I can't really claim Web hosting as an expense for this year, so that's $180 I can reinvest in other ways.
I haven't quite figured out what to do with all these "retired" blogs. I would love to somehow turn the clock back on my laptop, re post an article to its original post date and carry on. What I will do instead, is re post revised articles with their original post dates in the opening text interspersed with new posts. I will leave out some that don't seem relevant. Since this is a professional blog, I will continue to write from that perspective and keep personal journaling to my Great Hot Shaves blog.
I am sticking with the Die/|\Hard branding, however, marking this update as only a change of platform and exploration of Google apps.
Welcome to Die/|\Hard 3.1.
[4-18-2012] I found out I can turn back the clock--these new-fangled blogs!--so I've reposted them with appropriate dates.
