Welcome to the new blog system.
I guess the main question is what happened to previous blog entries and previous site?
The short answer, the server hardware crashed earlier this year. Hard disk was replaced. Some contents were lost.
According to my record, I joined in March 2004. Back then, it was ServerMatrix, then it became part of The Planet, and became part of SoftLayer. Then IBM purchased SoftLayer.
And I decided to switch web hosting and to restart the blog.
So, welcome to the new blog.
