I also wanted a journal where I could post all my technical notes without putting my main blog readers to sleep. A lot of these notes are for personal use, but figure others could use them as well. Like when I learn a new command, or build some Gentoo box, or whatever tech stuff I am doing. I also wanted someplace to put odd quotes,links, and facts I collect, mainly technical, but other stuff will sneak in as well.
Also, I wanted an LJ account before someone stole my name and claimed to be me (that's happened before on an e-mail alias, although, only as a harmless prank), and hammered all my friends. Mean people suck, man. An LJ account also helps collate my friend's LJ blogs together, post LJ comments, and so on.
So, here I am. I updated the site with a lot of junk I had lying in clippings around the hard drive. More to come.
