Hello world!

Ye olde website has moved servers once again.

The long and short of it is I found I could get three years of hosting at GoDaddy for a bit less than one year at Dreamhost. And while Dreamhost is really, really good – my site here requires something between the cheap shared hosting and the $300 a year VPS hosting, which they don’t offer.

And with looming WWIII, rampant inflation, an energy crisis, crashing stock markets, a housing bubble, and the general cost of living almost exceeding my income – I need to save money where I can.

I’d actually thought about just shelving the site here, but I have fun with it and now it’s cheap(er) fun.

The problem I’ve run into in exfiltrating my data from Dreamhost is the backup they sent me isn’t complete… It’s missing pretty much the entire last year. So, even though the dump date is February 13th, 2022, the last entries in the database are from March 28th, 2021.

So, I’m thinking I’ll just start again from here. I’ll put the memoirs back up for the occasional curious tourist, and maybe I’ll do a ‘year in review’ for each year leading up to today just to condense things.
