I began my Mumpsimus blog in early 2005, using the more awkward IPB system. This blog was started in January, 2012, when I moved to the WordPress platform. By the end of 2016, there were more than 900 entries here, more than 700 comments and more than 1.4 million words.
My older, Mumpsimus 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 Most are outdated now, so they aren’t all that relevant any more.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. Some older posts may still be visible to members and subscribers.
