The First Post


Well here it is: my first blog entry on this new platform. When I set up Rubenerd all those centuries ago it never really had a purpose, in all honesty is was always a website that just had random stuff on it that I either thought was groovy, weird etc. Now it's a blog site with random stuff on it that I think is groovy, weird etc.

I've kept a log at home for some time now, I think my first entry dates back to around 1999, but just in the last 2 years I've been a lot more involved and my entries have been progressively getting bigger and bigger. I don't know, but the idea of keeping a record of my life, however dull it is, might be fun to look at in years gone by!

Anyway I was finding that I was writing some pretty involved stuff and I thought that maybe one percent of it, or maybe two, might be useful to someone, especially with respect to some of the tech problems I've had and solved over the years. So here it is.

I hope you find this site useful or at the very least good material for whatever you want to do. I had a podcast going for a while but for the time being my Webserver is simply too small to accommodate them. Maybe in the future I'll take it up again.

Happy holidays!
