In the beginning…

So, how did this come about? Well, a Google recruiter found my online resume, thought “hey interesting”, then while checking on me found out that I’d already been working here for a year and a half. Thus I figured it was time to update my web page again. And hey, why not try this blogging thing?

So, after some minor trials and tribulations, I have WordPress set up. Some notes:

  • PHP and MySQL don’t get along well. Some key info is at http://dev.mysql.com/doc/mysql/en/old-client.html
  • PHP abandons the concept of “users” with different privileges, so there’s no security between one part of “the PHP system” and another part. I don’t like this when one of those parts has a MySQL password in it. So I’m going to work on wrapping this PHP in a CGI.
  • I’m going to have to make my own theme, or else this blog will be quickly abandoned on aesthetic grounds.

Hello world!
