For some reason, Blogger dumped some of my earliest posts prior to December 24, 2007. That's the oldest date for which it retains a posting at this point. I should probably read the EULA/terms to see if they have a cut-off date for older posts. In any case, from my best recollection, I started this blog in November 2006 and maintained it through now with a few manically depressive drop-outs and whatnot. \
Since early 2008 I've tried to maintain a regular presence, especially throughout the period of unemployment between March and June of 2008. As much as I hated it, the blog was somewhat of a therapy instrument (I apologize for dumping so many of my stupid hair-brained rants on you all - er - all three of you, that is). Somehow, I overlooked the November anniversary date, which would have been four years. Since my birthday is next week, I figured I'd just lump it together and wish my blog a belated happy birthday. I'll have to drink an extra beer or three this weekend.
In fact, I may be providing some technical assistance to some friends who are producing a beer-tasting podcast show. They were going full-bore for a while and hit a road bump and had to put everything on hold. But now they're firing the engine back up and they asked me to help with some tidbits. I hope to have some interesting news and links to share soon. Til then: CHEERS!
