I can’t believe it either. It’s been 10 years since my first ambitious post.
As far as posts go, some months are obviously better than others, and so much has happened in the last 10 years, I’ve moved cities, states, countries and continents. I’ve been though breakups, marriages, children, deaths, losing jobs, losing money, starting companies, renting houses, buying a house… It’s been incredible.
Looking back, in some places, I wish I’d written more, as this blog has been really technical which isn’t so bad, but even then it’s exceptionally terse. Lots of stuff doesn’t format correctly, and the one thing I don’t like at all is that it doesn’t render on older browers. But I have so much going on during the day, I don’t have time to write a CMS. I had tried a few people to spec out something to read the wordpress DB, and generate pages + gopher pages, but they always go running for the hills.
I hope to keep on trying to modernize Darwin 0.3 . I know that the world at large really doesn’t care, and I have a feeling that Rhapsody DR2 has some fundamental flaws that really prevent it from being anything useful, although it can’t be re-sold so it’s dead anyways.
So where will I be in 10 more years? I really don’t know. I know one project I’ve been constantly putting off will have to come to light sooner or later, but I do want to move to virtuallyfun.com . I know my blog is hard to find, it’s a custom name, on a really really long DNS zone. 10 years ago, I was hosted on wordpress, back at blogspot.com, but after their nearly 2 week outage, I moved out onto my own machine. I’d almost move back to someone managed, as I have so much other stuff going on, running a site isn’t worth my time, but I haven’t had time. When I do make the move though, most people won’t notice I plan to do a 302 + a refresh to bounce to the new domain, and all being well it’ll preserve the same schema so other than a shorter domain in the titlebar most people won’t notice. Right now it’s doing it, but backwards. But rest assured, I’m still keeping superglobalmegacorp.com ..
I hope to at least keep this thing up, keep it slightly interesting. Over the last year, the #1 page is Darwin 0.1 + Rhapsody DR 2 booted! I honestly didn’t think that would be anywhere near as popular as it is, but even after OSNews locked the topic, I still get over 100 hits a day. The #2 spot is Dunc’s Algomusic MkIIIb, after being linked to from [Vinesauce] Vinny – Text to MIDI. Which just goes to show, I really can never tell what is going to be popular..
