    Howdy. This is Bob. The Bob of Bob Blog. This blog contains about five minutes of my thoughts each day. A record. A history. And occasionally worth reading.

    How did I come to find Blogger?

    My personal site (http://www.mountabbey.com) used to have a news section that I rarely updated. However, I moved and my Sun Blade server has been put out of commission due to being on cox.net now instead of Road Runner (which didn't seem to be as proactive in hunting down servers.) One of the things I have had on my todo list is to get this back up and running. I also am convinced that writing for 5 minutes a day will be benefitial to my sanity. And finally, I wanted a better way to document some of the web research that I have been doing.

    I was going to invest some time to write my own code using Flash MX and ??? on the server side. I may end up trying to parse the files using Flash to make a nifty user interface. Why re-invent the wheel when there are so many of them with more features than I could ever hope to include...

    And today I found blogger...

    Some blog options:
    Blogger - http://www.blogger.com
    LiveJournal - http://www.livejournal.com/
    NewsPro -
    GreyMatter - http://www.noahgrey.com/greysoft
    WikiWikiWeb -

    I am leaning towards just turning back on the service I had been using (NewsPro?). I hope to clean up the templates, see if it can do some cool new features like icons, and maybe some form of user feedback. And then I also expect to continue to use WikiWikiWeb for the things that make sense.

    I really want to also have a calendar system with upcoming events, links back to the photos, etc. eInvite might be good enough but I think this may be where I put the focus of my next Flash project. Or a cool web polling system. Or...

    Expect to see a list of hosting options soon. My target: < $10/month for reasonable space, bandwidth, and service. I will need to find someplace to host my site once I have it working enough to want to move it off my staging server...
