For what it’s worth, after a not insubstantial period of downtime with a database connection error, we’re back. Naturally it was an easy fix. Since there have been no new posts since 2016, people wouldn’t exactly be flocking here, but hey.
Ironically, the last post was about plans to open new Dairy Queens, and perhaps a week ago a friend posted pictures of food from one such area DQ on Facebook. I’d forgotten about the expansion plans entirely until the site was revived and I saw the old post.
Since I’m doing an administrative update of sorts, some explanation of the posting drought. If you can call it that, given that not posting has been more normal than posting. Anyone paying attention can see that this is one of a set of blogs that, whatever their origin or history, are meant to cover different topics. I’ve come to think of myself as and perhaps even accept the status of “semi-retired.” The hosting exists. Most of the domains existed and they’re cheap for the next clever idea that’ll be quickly discarded. I love to write and theoretically have time. Revenue might theoretically be possible from blogging. So hey, why not do a group of blogs and see what happens! Yeah… that went well. While I haven’t dismantled the “Elhide Publishing” thing as it exists online, I also haven’t pursued it. That doesn’t mean I’ll never post at a given blog. It doesn’t even preclude a burst, or something longer, of intensive posting.
Just don’t count on it.
Hey, for all you know I could suddenly get a “real job” and no longer be semi-retired because “old” in tech started at least twenty years before more traditional retirement age. With the improving economy, who knows. Just don’t count on it.
