Go on — call it a comeback

… aaaaaand we’re back.

Welcome to the newly unified Soapbox, my one and only blog for the foreseeable future. This feat of modern code magic would not have been possible without the tireless skill and dogged determination of Suuru Designs (who adapted the hell out of this WordPress theme for me, making it fit the rest of the site) and krischel.org (who wrestled server shenanigans to make it all work), so they both deserve endless praise and gratitude.

Let’s inaugurate this with some self-serving blog-fu, just so we know where all the bodies are preserved in disturbing life-like poses.

Oops. Maybe too soon for that. Oh well. Anyway …

THE RISE OF KHART HADDAS: If all of my blogging is moving here, whatever happened to The Hundred and Four? Well, that’ll now be my own little sandbox to experiment with, where I’ll toss up any crazy thing I get the idea to (which will clear some operating room here on the main domain). It retains everything that went before (I’m touchy that way) while keeping a “heads up display” of my currently abandoned Twitter feed (back in 2011), an RSS of this blog and my linkroll (updated six to seven days a week). Just so ya know.

SEVEN YEARS STRONG: My weekly review column, The Buy Pile continues its largely uninterrupted run (I’ve missed maybe six weeks in seven years, maybe) thanks to the wonderful people at Comic Book Resources and — much to the dismay of many — will not be stopping for the foreseeable future. That H-Teezy reign just won’t let up …

GIVE YOURSELF TO THE DARK SIDE: As many of you might have noticed, this is in fact a WordPress blog … which means I’ll be eating some crow for all the years I said WordPress theme mavens weren’t real coders and what not. I stand corrected. The amazing (and rather labyrinthine) work done by Suuru Designs has shown me the error of my ways, and I accept that not only is this a valid methodology for blogging, but with MaStory going on my N900, it’s almost like live reporting. Just saying — be warned, I could cover anything, anywhere now …

That’s all I have time for, as I have another blog to do and two meetings to prep for. No rest for the wicked. I’d be happy to hear what you think of all this in the comments or what have you, and I thank you for joining me on the ride.
