Freshening up

If you haven’t visited in a while you may have noticed that things look…different. Clearly, content creation hasn’t been a priority since, uh, 2013. (If you’re one of my compatriots from the WLAN professional community you very well may never have been here before.) In fact, at one point during some system maintenance I broken Movable Type so badly that I couldn’t even make a new post if I wanted to.

One of the interesting thing about the WLAN professional community is that blogging and social media participation is a thing that one does. And so if I want to be a participating member of this community (which I do) I needed to revive my blogging platform. I know it would have been easy to just pay WordPress for hosting, but I figured I’d see if I could get things set up myself. And not only did I repair my MT install enough to extract the older content, but I also got WordPress up and running just fine. Oh, and now running a supported version of FreeBSD which seemed like a good idea.

I’m fairly impressed by WordPress. This is a “stock” theme and it suits my personal design preferences quite well. It’s a pretty impressive tool, but I’m sure I’m doing this all wrong. But a learning experience never hurts.

Looking at that older content I’m not really sure if I want to keep it up or not. But I have done a few things to allow folks to narrow down what they look at:

  • Any Wi-Fi related content will be categorized as such, and be visible at Hypergeek Wi-Fi so if you’re only here for the Wi-Fi content feel free to use that URL.
  • Personal content can be found at personal.hypergeek.net. That’s where all the old content is at the moment, for example.
  • And, as always, you can just hit the main site to get the whole thing.

So feel free to let me know what you think. We’ll see what happens as the situation evolves.
