My new computer arrived yesterday, and everything is now up and running. I'm self-hosting again (you should notice the drastic speed decrease), but on the upside, I've posted all new pictures in the photographs section (they're not clipped and resized). Enjoy!
Writing is going well. I'm working on a longer musing that I'm taking the time to draft over a few days. It's nothing earth shattering, just a way for me to get my feet wet again.
