Well, it finally happened. A hard drive died with no backups. It’s been many years since the last time something like this has happened to me, and I swore that I had learned my lesson. I guess some lessons just have to be refreshed once in a while.
Nonetheless, this brings a chance for a fresh start. I decided to go the WordPress route to lessen the burden of updates and management on myself. The last site was in Drupal. That was a lesson in how feature-bloat could easily overtake a casual site and make it a full-time endeavour.
I’ll be messing with these pages in the days to come. In the meantime, watch this space.
