Luddites 'R' Us

I dunno about this whole blogging thing. Old dog. New trick. I guess I’ll try it for a while and see what happens.

Now don’t get me wrong; I may be a Luddite, but I'm comfortable with technology. I started programming computers (in numeric machine language) in 1963. And I write standards-compliant HTML today. Sure, I used to set foundry type in a composing stick. But I’ve also kept up with the latest advances in digital typography.

I’ve been an active Usenet participant for a decade or so. So it’s not like I don't know how to do this. It’s just, well, it’s just going to take some getting used to. But give me a few weeks and I’ll get the hang of it.
