When I first started this blog, I thought it would be an experiment. I was exploring WordPress as a platform and wanted to know how customizable it was. I wanted to know if it could grow and expand with my interests. I wanted it to be a place where I could post pictures and maybe experiment with podcasts and other internet stuff.
What I did not intend, however, was for it to become a full-fledged website. It was supposed to be a side project, and I figured that I would eventually tire of it and move on. That's why it was set up at oak-tree.us/blog rather than oak-tree.us. Oak-Tree.us was always meant to be something special. (Just to save you the trouble, there's still nothing there. I have yet to find the "something".)
Over the past two years, oak-tree.us/blog has become quite a bit more than an experiment. For a little hobby website, it gets a respectable amount of traffic (sometimes as many as 1,000 hits in a single day) and I think it's time that it have it's own respectable domain. For that reason, I am moving the website from the current address (http://www.oak-tree.us/blog) to something relatively unique. (For me, this almost counts as living dangerously.)
From here on out, the site's address will be:
The good news, however, is that is where the changes end. I only have so much tolerance for change, and a different Url is about all I can handle. Everything else will remain the same. All of the content, comments and files have been migrated. I'm even using the same WordPress theme. The only thing that's different is the Url. Thus, please update your bookmarks and feedreaders and I hope to you over on the new site!
(Just so people and various search robots don't become confused, I'll keep a copy of the old stuff here. The archives will still work, and the file links will still be active; but comments are closed and the site will be unmaintained. For updates, releases of Time Drive, LyX-Outline news and book related material, please go to http://blog.oak-tree.us. Thanks.)
