Welcome to my blog!
Nanoman's Company has taken over what was once my News page. I needed a replacement outlet for my personal announcements and musings, so I created this blog to fill that role.
Into this blog, I imported my old News articles. The "Lundi Links" articles that I posted from 2011-03-21 until 2015-03-16 didn't seem relevant for this blog, so instead of moving them here, I moved them to their own page.
I've cleaned up my personal pages, and added a few new ones:

Congratulations to Mozilla for fifteen years of improving our open Internet!
If you haven't done so already, you should try their Mozilla Firefox web browser or their Mozilla Thunderbird email client. You can also watch the documentary of Mozilla's original release:

Happy Pi Day!
To honour this international celebration in a completely unrelated way, I have rewritten my website's content management system. The old version was only partially built when I started using it on 2005-07-02, and updating my website was far more tedious than it should have been. I decided it was easier to rewrite than to resume, and I'm very satisfied with the finished product.
Here's a summary of the changes:
- The layout has been redesigned to make pages less awkward in web browsers that are text-based and/or lack CSS support.
- Pages load faster, require less bandwidth, and consume less electricity.
- The minimum display resolution I recommend has been raised from 640x480 pixels to 800x600 pixels.
- Redesigned the menu.
- Redesigned the News page.
- Converted the News Web Feed into Atom format.
- Created a page for my company.
- Created a page for my personal content.
- Created a page for links to other websites.
Rather than limit this "News" section to posts about my own website, I've decided to start posting links to external content that I think is worth sharing. Like my site's content, the links I post will not necessarily be appropriate for all audiences, so viewer discretion is advised.

My homepage's age is now measured in double digits!
Work has kept me very busy lately, so I didn't have time to implement all the changes I wanted to make in honour of this awesome occasion. Nothing new has been added, but there are a few changes worth mentioning:
- improved layout
- more standards compliant
- significantly reduced power consumption
I'll post more later.

To celebrate my website's eighth B-day, I've added a WCISA that I discovered when I was in grade eight: Everything from Onions to Pneumatic Drills.
Don't let anyone control your mind!

I've added a page where I rant about the F-Lock key that exists on keyboards with "enhanced" function keys.
You can read it here.
