Time for a reboot!

Yes, I know… It’s been well over a year since I last actually added something to this site (and when I did, it was only to re-add the historical content after someone hacked the WordPress installation). There are two reasons behind that. The first is a simple lack of time. It’s amazing how a young child in the house will do that to you. The second was that my employer’s computer use policy includes a statement that posting on a blog was prohibited, and that by doing so I could be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination. In this economy, that wasn’t something I was willing to risk!

Still, time marches on, and I finally came to a couple of conclusions. First of all, some of my friends have similarly aged children and they are able to keep their websites updated. In some cases multiple sites. Telling myself I don’t have enough time probably means that I am actually wasting it. Besides, who needs sleep anyway?! Secondly, the company I work for really has no right to tell me what I can do in my free time as long as it doesn’t negatively impact them. Since I have no intention of revealing the inner workings of their code, or product plans, on this site I’m probably safe. I certainly hope so anyway.

So, what next? Well having decided I need to do do something with this site. I shall! For starters, I migrated away from my previous hosting company, which appeared to be getting slower and slower, to a new one Arvixe. They offered everything my previous host provided with better response times and lower cost!¬†As for the content, my goal is to follow the example of several others I know and post at least one new entry each week. In between postings, you can find me on both Twitter (@richardjfoster) and Google+ (+Richard Foster) feel free to stop by and say “Hi” in either location, although I’m currently more active in G+ than Twitter.
