Turn Left at the Blogspot

Ok, so I am capping off this blog for now. I have found a new home.

http://blog.boostventilator.com

It took awhile to get the content moved and it is going to take even more time to tag and categorize everything, but I am happy with the move to Wordpress and mediatemple (turns out I am not alone).

Word!

Metro-technical: n. Someone who's willing to try ANY piece of software or hardware for at least a week until the shine wears off and they go sniffing for the next buzz. The metro-technical is to the far left of the tech scale, equidistant from the suspender-wearing sys admin and the nervous iPod upgrader. (Mule Design Studio's Blog)
