After a nearly one-year hiatus, I’m pleased to announce that Waileia has officially re-launched. Welcome back! The world hasn’t stopped changing since my last post in February, 2005, so there’s clearly a lot of catch-up work to be done.
I’m excited to announce that after many months of debating, designing, and coding, I’ve officially switched to WordPress, an open-source weblog engine that I think will provide me with more flexibility in getting my thoughts from my brain to the world.
Unfortunately, few changes come without downsides, and this is no exception. If you’re one of the many incredibly cool people that have linked to me through a previous permalink, you’ll want to update the link to the new format. It’s not too difficult to do – just delete any zeros in front of the file name and erase the “.html” extension at the end. If you do use an old link, I’ll provide a direct link to the new location in the 404 error message. (I may decide to make this a permanent redirect, but for the moment, it’s not.) As long as you’re using a recent version of a mainstream feed reader, you’ll have no problems with the new RSS 2.0 feed – I’ve set up permanent redirects on the old feed URLs to make it easy to find.
Thanks to all of you for your support of Waileia over the years. It’s truly you that motivates me to share this journal with the world.
