Coming home

After years of wonderful service the future of (my current blog host) is coming into question due to an acquisition by Twitter . In light of this I will finally be getting around to bringing my blog back in-house, here to Gullickson Laboratories.

This isn’t the first time I’ve hosted my own blog, in fact my first blog was hosted at, on blogging software I wrote myself before the widespread use of the word “blog” existed. Unfortunately little remains of that initial series of posts, but if I ever find them I’ll add them to the backlog here.

After the original Skylab fell (thanks to Charter Communications shutting down inbound traffic to port 80), I switched to hosting my sites elsewhere and at one point off-the-shelf blogging software was good enough that I stopped hosting that content myself. This lead to livejournal, blogger, Wordpress and eventually posterous.

Posterous was so easy that I was hooked after day one. Needless to say when I brought online I saw little reason to move the blog and happily kept it hosted abroad.

However the time has come, and having setup a self-hosted Wordpress site for several others I decided it was time to do the same for myself. Perhaps as i become more familiar with Wordpress I may expand the use of it to other aspects of, but only time will tell.

For now all future blog posts will be landing here, and I will be bringing over any interesting posts which currently reside elsewhere (as time allows).
