| |Time has come for a RadioActive Blog ...
|It's all about the content
the beginning my first website was to prove to myself that it could be
done. That was about 1994. I could tell that most of what I had for
sharing was gonna be ham radio related. By 1996 I had split my web
world into the 'alan' site and the 'wb5rmg' site. In 1998 I registered
the name 'SomeNet.NET',
and they lived on my own hardware. My personal site evolved thru
different html generation platforms, but the RMG site hung on with raw
html editing for a while longer. Maybe about 2003 I started using a
WYSIWYG style editor 'KomPozer' to help generate tables and a maintain a fairly consistent presentation. Shortly after that, I setup WordPress on my server to manage my personal site as a Blog - and it still appears as www.somenet.net ... which includes some ham radio related posts, and pointers into the original radio web site.
it is nice to have my own server, sometimes it feels like it gets in
the way of just having a place to put stuff, without having to mess
with it. When I have the ability to custom tweak a lot of features and
make things behave a certain way (my way of course) - I tend to spend
more time messin with the stuff, than I do actually just generating the
WordPress.com tries to make it easy for folks with this affliction - I can now build a site on their server, using their software (which they
regularly upgrade - not me), and take advantage of all their latest and
greatest tools and widgets, and other cool tricks. I do sacrifice a
tiny bit of custom-geek-tweaking - but they have built a lot of power
into the content management capabilities... I think I'll come out ahead
in the long run.
So with this introduction . . . . .
please go visit my new RadioActive Blog : http://wb5rmg.wordpress.com
add this new site as a bookmark, or favorite - and come back now and
then to see what else has been added. This old html site will continue
on, mostly to host the last decade or so of content that's already in
here, but to also provide a home for the random bits of stuff that just
won't fit into a blog structure very well. Enjoy !!
organizations are consolidating some of the overhead associated with
registration and training of the membership. Join us on the 2nd
Thursday evening of each month for a good meeting at the HMC EMA EOC
