It is good to be back.

What’s it been, a few months?

Now I’m back. I don’t like private hosting. Mainly because I don’t have the time to spend on customization and fiddling with the details. I guess I feel like that because the WordPress team has done such a good job making all the features and overall site usable and their stuff just works!

The reason I created a blog originally was to jot my ideas down. Not to become popular or to recieve lots of comments. I just wanted a record of my activities and mind set for later and so I will strive to do more of that as time goes on.
