I quit using this blog for about 18 months. I hemmed and hawed about whether or not to even renew the domain the last two times. In my neglect, I let the site get hijacked. As near as I can tell, it was just redirecting traffic to some site in Russia that wouldn’t load. Still, that was stupid and slack of me. I don’t know if I’ll ever do anything with this site again. I had to wipe away everything that was here before to get back to this point. All of the content I wrote between 2004 and 2010 is gone. I have no back ups of any of it. I won’t ever let that happen again. I actually did write some decent stuff here once. I also made some very accurate and very unusual predictions about some past elections here. That’s all gone now. Bummer.
