Comments Gone

Well seeing as I'm going to open this blog up again I figured I better come in and have a little clean up. Checking the comments it was obvious that most of the 1000+ comments were some form of spam so I decided that I'd clear then all out, including the good ones, sorry about that but I didn't have the time to read each one and decide what was worth keeping.

It seems that the blog still gets a number of visitors even though it's not been updated in some considerable time. It's linked from a number of significant places and still rates reasonably well in Google.

In the next few days I'll be writing something about my new Raspberry Pi computer, including setting up MySQL.

It's as if I never went away

It's been getting on for 3 years since I updated this blog and more like 6 since I regularly added to it. It's actually pretty amazing that in that time it's still prettying relevant and useful, that's not something you could have said in my first 6 years in the IT industry back in the late 90's.

I'm writing this sitting on a train, it will take me a couple of minutes to update and post, something even back then that would have seemed pretty out there. But the last six years hasn't seen those same radical shifts in programming, what I wrote back at the start is still relevant today, let's hope that what I write in the following months stays around for as long.
