Hello, and welcome to my online world!
This journal will serve as my regular communication outlet to all who come my way via the web. (Isn't that what a journal is for, anyway?)
(In contrast, the forums that I will be hosting and the (more or less) static web pages that I will have available will cater to a set of very specific and limited audiences. You may or may not find anything of personal interest there.)
As I begin unlocking my site, note that this is only a dry run, so not everything is up and running or running as it should be. I haven't even prepared my forums yet; I'm waiting on my database to be setup by my host. However, don't expect anything to necessarily remain either as it is or even at all. I may scrap anything and or everything all together. I also will be rolling out a PHP-Nuke content management system down the road as the content expands to the point that it becomes useful and necessary.
This site won't open "officially" for several more weeks, at the earliest. Until then, feel free to look around and see what you can find. Actually, I welcome it! By using my site during this interim period, you have the honor of serving as one of my beta testers. Also, feel free to test my security, within the limits of common courtesy. All that I ask is that you DO NO DAMAGE! There is an old adage that I like to recall: "Locks are meant to keep honest people out." If you end up someplace where things seem unusual or out of place, consider that your hint that you probably aren't meant to be there. Remember, you wouldn't even be here if it weren't for my invitation (or that of someone else who happens to know me, for that matter…). It's on your honor that you will respect this privilege.
Just as a word of thanks, I want to mention that this site is being hosted by Mac (a friend of mine) on his own personal account. Thank you, Mac! You can visit his web site at http://www.educedvoid.com.
