The great titling and tagging project of 2009

So, thankfully, with the WordPress UI being completely revamped, I’m inspired to tag and title all of the previous entries.

I thought that this was an awesome, awesome idea.

Until I realized I have been super lazy this entire time that I have maintained (and I use the term loosely) this website.

It started out as a windows 2000 box where I manually updated the index.html and then moved older entries, again, manually.  Anyone remember the Code Red virus?  Yeah, that happened to me.  Oh the joys of running your own webserver.

Then blogger came along and that was a godsend.  “It can do dates automatically?!”

And then it ceased to be a godsend, and I migrated to WordPress circa 2004 and haven’t looked back.

Right now I’m contemplating a “clip show” where I round up posts that I forgot I had written and then post snippets.

This project is going to be long, but I foresee it being shorter than the “digitize old written journals” project that I’ve sort of ignored since 1990.
