Can you feel it? It’s the start of a new year; it’s the feeling of anticipation of starting things fresh, of having yet another go at those resolutions and goals that you never got around to last year. It’s the feeling of renewal, of excitement, and of hope.

Yep. It’s now 2005, and if you missed that, well… let’s just say that perhaps you should resume your substance experimentation.

For the rest of us, happy new year, and welcome to 2005. As you can see I’ve made some rather significant changes to my blogging software; I’m now using’s integrated editor. It’s pretty slick, actually – with only some minor complaints and limitations which I’m sure there’s a work around for (but at this point I just don’t care.) This new stuff should make several people quite happy (yeah bob, that’d be you). You’ll no longer have to be signed in on to comment on the blogs, which is a pretty big deal for some of you, apparently. I’m also hoping to blog a little more often, and at least occasionally a little less “heavy”.

All that said, I hope you have a happy new year!
