First post on the new blogging platform. In case anyone stumbles across this and was wondering, I recently (well, maybe not that recently) changed my hosting provider and in doing so, also had to change the blogging software that I was using. The old Absurd Singularity had been using the venerable MovableType platform since its inception oh so many eons ago. As my blogging fell by the wayside, I never bothered updating the running version past a certain point nor bothered to look for a more up-to-date solution to use as it was working fine for my purposes. But my new hosting provider doesn’t support the old version of perl that was needed to keep the admin portion up & running and the version of MT that I was clinging onto would have needed so many code changes to make it useable w/the latest & greatest versions of perl that I had to finally bite the bullet and switch over to WordPress. I’d dabbled w/Wordpress many, many moons ago and I gotta say, it’s definitely come a looooong way since then.

But anyway, I’ll be fiddling around with the layout and content of this “new” blog for the foreseeable future. No guarantee that I’ll actually start up blogging again but who knows, stranger things have happened.
