Disclaimer: if you're digging around in this archive of my developing brain, take heed: some of it is terrible nonsense. I started writing this blog in 2005 when I was sixteen years old, apparently with the straightforward mission of proving that all teenagers are irredeemable idiots.

Let there be absolutely no doubt that while there are some fun and thoughtful posts in this my ancient blog, there are also some indefensible ones. I had fallen to some degree to post-9/11 xenophobia and had some fundamental misconceptions about my fellow human beings. Like many teenaged boys, I revelled in feeling smart, so Dawkinsesque arrogance was like, totally, my thing. I was an idiot, it's embarassing, but I'm leaving it here to remind myself and you that no one is beyond saving.

Laugh, don't cry; I'm feeling much better now.

26-12-2009 Now listen here

As the year's end draws nigh, the beginning draws ever further away. Soon, it will no longer be the closest beginning in the past. Eh? Eh?

Anyway, I've made a big decision: this blog right here is going down. Now, before you type your emails proclaiming your indignation at my flipfloppery, allow me to clarify: this.

Let me say that a bit louder, just to make sure you didn't miss any of it:

this.

While I'm happy with my decision, somewhat of a problem will be that I won't have as much control over coding and aesthetics and such as I do here, and god knows I likes me some total control. But you know, I'll happily hand in some of my delicious power for all those pretty variable metatags, commenting systems, permalinks and other such pretty, shiny joy that PHP provides. Perhaps - and this is me out on a limb - you won't have to kill yourself of misery.

And guess what? Merry horsemas, a happy new year, and a jolly fucking easter, my friend. And read my blog! It's super duper.
