The end of the end

I suppose the secret is out; a desktop image was leaked a week or two ago into the Unix screenshot area of reddit.

That can mean only one thing: Yes, I’ve been answering e-mails and concocting some low-end systems again, for better or for worse.

So yes, I suppose I am … you could say, if you want, maybe, it’s possible, kinda-sorta … back in the game. 😯

But there’s been a definite sea change. After a year and a half of inactivity, I can’t just suddenly pick up and run.

The best way to handle a transition of this magnitude is to acknowledge the closure, and start again fresh.

So without any further ado, here’s a new page for you to visit:Β

That’s meant to be a double- or triple-entendre there. I want the focus to be on software for text-based systems, the kind of software that was a joy to write about here, again and again, for so many years.

Therefore, in the console. (Cheesy, I know, but with the layered meaning that I know geeks will appreciate. πŸ™‚ )

Fewer personal rants, fewer esoteric system settings, and more applications that are useful for embedded, text-only, or very low-end hardware. More of the goodies.

And good grief, I know I still have enough software to skim through. 😯 My hands were full when I shut down this site, and are still full now.

Either way, this is the end of the end — things are starting up again, albeit in a new location. If you can take the time, please stop by and see what new toy I discovered. And tell me about your favourite. I do love a good text-based gizmo. … πŸ˜‰

    That’s so good to hear. So after all, there was a reason I never purged this blog from my feed reader. Looking forward to your posts, mate!

    And thus 2013 starts with a very positive note. Welcome back.
    Adding rss feed as we speak.

    Welcome back!
    I hope that you will still keep this old site up and available in the interwebz? πŸ™‚

      Of course! πŸ™‚ I would be in big trouble myself, if I ever removed those notes from the web. No exaggeration, but I probably refer to this site once a week for some silly script or plugin that I mentioned five years ago. It may become a fixture of the Linux landscape … it’s already a fixture in my household. πŸ™„ πŸ˜‰

    Good to have you back, K. I did a trim of my RSS feeds at the end of the year, and for some reason your blog slipped through the net. Lucky escape. πŸ™‚

    some of us never left you here btw πŸ˜‰ We’ve just had your RSS feed idling in the background for cases such as this…all the while knowing you’d be back.
