This blog was begun in January, 2012, although I have been actively blogging online since 2005. It was started to get onto the WordPress platform and off the more awkward IPB system. By the end of 2015, there were more than 700 entries here, more than 500 comments and more than 1 million words.
My older posts are currently offline. Most are outdated now, so they aren’t all that relevant any more. Links to posts there found in this new blog may not work since they generally point back to my old server.
The archive of older posts on the Mumpsimus site included 91 pages of writing, dating from early 2005 to late 2011: more than 650 posts total, about Collingwood Council, science, morality, faith, politics, history, human rights, Darwin, egregious stupidity, skepticism, language, grammar, the environment, computer games, technology and software, my family, SUVs, book and film reviews, music, ukuleles, Tibet, Quebec, motorcycles, taxes, chess, elections, Mexico, tequila, bad drivers, local media, bloggers, urban design, social media, debentures, pets, critical thinking and much more.
It was also the database of many personal posts, about family and genealogy. In the indefinite future, I will restore some of these older posts that are not terribly dated, to this site.
The Blue Agave Forum remains active for those wanting a calm place to discuss tequila.
