billy blog archive - 2004-2006

Friday October 24, 2014 03:00:17

billy blog began in December 2004 and was updated regularly over the next several years but was discontinued for a period while a new system was introduced which has made maintenance easier to perform and our enhanced site security. This process took longer than expected and was sidelined as other projects took priority. In early 2009, I ported the old blog into the new database system and all entries are available here. For both administrative and technical reasons, I made the decision not to integrate the old blog into the new blog but leave it as a stand-alone archive.
