As the title says, i’ve now cleared out all the old dead links to posterous and all of the old images.
Also updated the WP themes and plugins, i will one day actually use this site for content, but my life is currently bogged down into work, that i should be doing. especially since it’s 12.35am on a Monday.
Man, it’s still kind of annoying that they closed Posterous, as it was a good catch-all social site,
but tumblr, kind of outmatched it in a lot of ways. a pity, since tumblr often had so much … inane … filler and LiveJournal + Animated GIF content.
unlike this site. which is chock full of content.
I sort of dislike the idea of blogging. But I’ll be putting content up onto this site, so I should at least make a positive start, get some fresh paint, update the theme and spruce things up.
I need to test a few mechanisms and plugins over the next few weeks, and tie in some portfolio work I’ve been recalcitrant on adding, due to incompleteness.

I would feel angry, but it is, ultimately, where I have chosen to be. In as much as I don’t know the people, I don’t have the skill or the experience; I have an idea, and now I have no team. I should feel some shame or grief or guilt, mostly it’s curious abandonment, I have to start again, or follow another North Star, another bright light towards a distant destination.
And, its not a very original story, not a very difficult concept, it’s not challenging. Not at all. It’s sufficiently stupid, and sufficiently engaging. But I still feel attached to this vestigial idea, and it will never happen.
