I've had a web presence in some form or another since about 1998 or so, when I made my first hand coded HTML pages available online. Or maybe I used Netscape Composer; honestly, I can't remember. Over the years, the various incarnations of my website have been hosted on, in no particular order, U of T servers, PCI Geomatics servers, Geocities, Netfirms, and a series of home machines set aside for this express purpose.

When I finally started my blog in earnest, I basically pushed aside all the old content in favour of the new. The stuff I had written up until that point was largely forgotten, and started gathering dust on my old Sun Ultra 10, which was the last machine to host my site before I finally gave in and started using a web hosting company (then a VPS and then, finally, a dedicated server which I rent from kimsufi)

I've recently dug out my Sun Ultra 10 from my closet and have since been knee-deep in nostalgia. I think my old site or, at least, selected parts of it, deserves a home, and this page will act as such - your gateway to the past! Expect new (well, actually, old) things to show up here as I work my way through the years.

The content, for the most part, remains unchanged, with a few exceptions (like converting the HTML to markdown and fixing broken links where possible). Enjoy! Or not...
