Welcome to my new URL, dear readers. I’m pretty pumped to be hosting my own WordPress site. But keep your fingers crossed that it won’t melt into some cyber wasteland of over-coded, under-linked HTML.

Too. Many. Plugins.

Or this?

You can OD on widgets.

I know tech people don’t mean to make life difficult. And today, this article reminded me of the good things scientists dream up. Real inspirational. But I think I’ll stick with coding rather than entering the bowels of some university hospital and performing magic on lab rats. And to those who feel my blogging incompetencies, let us [W]press on.
