My whole blog and web site died the other day. One day it was working fine, the next, nothing. Couldn’t even get a back up to work.

So I’m taking it as a sign. It means one of three things:

  1. It’s time to change hosting providers. But that’s way too much work and hassle and expense for many reasons.
  2. It’s time to abandon all thought of writing/blogging. But I can’t yet bring myself to do that.
  3. It’s time to start fresh and clean. So here I am. The old stuff is gone. Even if there was value there – and conceivably it could one day be recovered, in theory – it might as well be compost on the forest floor at the moment.

So this is my first post on the re-created blog. Brilliant, I know. But I have to start somewhere. And it’s kind of interesting to see again what a clean install of WordPress looks like.
