Welcome back! If you’re reading this, you’ve successfully transitioned from the old blog, vector, to the new one, The Brunch Table. Why the change? Most immediately, I realized that the hosting plan that Justina and I have with DreamHost could host more sites than we were using it for, so I decided to move retrovirus.com over there and save a bit of cash money. While I was at it, DreamHost has a one-click WordPress install feature, and WordPress has better anti-comment-spam options than the old version of Movable Type that I was using before, so I decided to migrate over to WordPress.
At the same time, some things had changed about vector. For one, it had become just as much Nick’s blog as mine (he’s been much better at posting interesting stuff than I have). Also, I found myself conflicted by my desire to talk about both work stuff and random interesting things about the world in general, because I thought those two trains of thought might have somewhat different audiences. So, this blog has become The Brunch Table, more focused on the sorts of things that Nick and I would talk about at Sunday brunch. (Thanks to Ratha, LiveJournal users can syndicate this feed through
brunch_table.) At the same time, I’ve created a new shop talk blog for myself called The Incrementalist, where I can geek out to my heart’s content without boring you guys with my code listings. Also, neither here nor there, I’ve been posting more photos to my Flickr account, which tends to be more about my day-to-day life than either of the blogs. So, thanks for reading—we’ll keep doing our darndest to stuff your RSS stockings with worthwhile content.
