This evening finds me exceptionally happy. Ever since I had to move my blog to wordpress, I longed for my archive of old entries to be restored. It was always sort of on the back burner: I knew it would be a huge task, and I didn’t have a clue where to begin. A few days ago, though, I began to think about it again, and started asking questions on facebook. My Australian friend Darryl noticed and kindly offered to help. I was in two minds about it at first, but he obviously knew more about it than me. I sent him the archive in pdf and gave him access to my blog, and I’m overwhelmed with joy to report that my full weblog archive, from 2003 to 2018, is now back online and readable on this site. This might sound silly, but it feels like fifteen years of work, fifteen years of my history, have suddenly been restored to me. I’m ecstatic, and feel like a party. Most of all, I’m indebted to Darryl.
