Everything Old is New Again

Our long national nightmare has come to an end.

It's a fresh start for Greg and Deb on the Web. In the past you could always get here via www.gregorylee.com. These days that URL is the only way to get here. That's good and bad. By making the change I'm going to lose my Google rank, it'll take months for the crawlers to find me and my hits will dwindle to around three each day (two of them will be me to see if you've left any comments).

The good news is the new site directory looks squeaky clean. The old server was a leftover from the days before you could publish photos, sound files or movies on Blogger. It was clunky and cluttered and ready for retirement.

We're still using Blogger. I got a free copy of Movable Type and read a little about using it. The more I read, the more visions I had of me sitting in the basement until 3:00 a.m. trying to get everything to work. As much as I hated to return to Blogger I knew it was the easiest way to get back online.

So here I sit, blogging on the couch while I listen to Allie read aloud and Julia mutter what sounds a little like obscenities as she plays with some of her new Christmas toys.

Deb is reading; quietly.

Speaking of Deb, if you read her blog you'll find out if Allie is going to live.


She's going to be fine. She had kind of a crappy Christmas, but hopefully the sea of toys I'm looking at right now beneath the tree will be some compensation for the massive amount of puke she's had to deal with over the last few days.

Guess I won't be sending any letters out anytime soon. That's okay. You wouldn't have been able to read my writing anyway.

I thought I left a comment here, but it doesn't seem to have posted. Is that due to my incompetence or Bloggers?
