Well, now that I’ve moved the blog stuff over to here, I need to figure out what I’m going to do with the 8dot3 space. Like I said, I want to make it more of a permanent central page, but not sure if I want to do it manually, with hard coded HTML and the such, or use some sort of portal/CMS software. I’ve been thinking of playing with Drupal, especially since I have another possible use for it, and it’d be nice to get my feet wet with it. It does seem to be a pretty flexible piece of software. As for dirtfeed, I think I’d like to give Les’s accumulator software a try, but I’m not sure how easy it’ll be to setup and get working (Les’s software often requires a high degree of geekness to understand and use.. hehe)
Welp, the beginning of the weekend is before me, and I think it’s time to hit that dusty road. Hope to squeeze in a ride tonight. Not sure how much time I’ll have for riding Saturday and Sunday. I’ll probably get to ride both days, but I don’t think I’ll be able to get any real distance in… ugh… Lumberjack is coming up QUICK!

Well, what do we have here?
Yeah, another attempt at the blog.
I’ve have have a couple of domains sitting around, so I got the idea that I’m going to use the different domains for different things. I want to do a more static ‘who I am’ page, that also links to many of my other stuff (things that are hosted elsewhere.. netflix queues, wishlists, etc) Sort of the ‘center’ of my online universe. I think I’m going to use 8dot3 for that. The old blog will still be there, but I’m going to stop using it, and just sort of leave it there for archiving. So that people following those old links off google won’t be dunped into the ether of 404 land, and so I also don’t feel the need to move that crap onto this blog. This one is a fresh start.
I also want to do soft of an accumulator. Someplace I can pull all of my feeds, lists, etc together. Something like a personal friendfeed.com I’ll probably stick that over at dirtfeed.com. I originally picked that up for a home-rolled rss reader, but google reader has become so good, it’s not worth trying to do it yourself anymore.
So, this is it. Pretty bare bones, and it’s probably going to stay that way for the most part. I might be adding some widgets and plugins to help make things work smoothly, so there might be some things moving around, or appearing or disappearing, but probably nothing drastic. I’m going to have links to keep all of my sites pointed at each other.
I’m just looking forward to a clean start at tags and catagories. Fun stuff… *eye roll*
