Haiku Guestbook migration

So upon closer inspection, there are quite a few things my old hand-coded site could do that WordPress won’t let me. It’s probably for security reasons, but when I try to put any JavaScript in here, WordPress cuts it out before saving. We’ll see if there’s a simple workaround.

In the meanwhile, my haiku guestbook is still up in its old location, outside of WordPress. I can stay there while I figure out how to integrate it better.

New BryceLand

I started stashing my stuff here a really long time ago. Back then I spent a lot more time at the computer, and my job involved web programming, so a totally homegrown website made good enough sense for me. Besides, back then we didn’t have the arsenal of plug and play blogging platforms that are available today. (“We coded our pages by hand without syntax highlighting in the snow both ways, and we liked it!”)

But I’ve finally realized that I don’t really need to personally build the car in order to drive it. In fact, time has shown me that in my new life, building the car leaves me with almost no time to actually go anywhere. Thus it’s time for BryceLand: Extreme Makeover Edition.

Along with this redesign, I’m reconsidering what BryceLand is about. It will remain a repository for my random projects—I’m keeping the most popular old stuff, and the things I’m most sentimental about—but it does have the potential to be more.

Back when I used to have more to say and more time to say it in, my voice on the internet was my LiveJournal. My account over there is permanent, and I can’t quite bring myself to migrate away just yet. I also started a Tumblr account at some point, but I use it mainly to follow other people.

Anyway, who says I have to decide right now what the new BryceLand will become? I’ll watch it unfold a bit first.
