Nerdland has been “down for reconstruction” for almost a year now, since July 11, 2008, and had been almost completely stagnant for at least two years before that. Today, it has re-opened with a new purpose. To quote the About page:
Nerdland is my personal website. It has been many things since it was first brought online in 1999. Historically, it has been an my experimentation ground for web development. These days, it is a place where I put records of my thoughts and activities, mostly related to my dual career-hobby of computer programming, and my interests in theoretical computer science. Nerdland is not strictly a weblog. Shorter comments and time-relevant materials are posted in weblog format, but Nerdland also serves as a collection of standalone articles, which are permanently accessible through the links on the left.
The primary difference between this and previous incarnations of Nerdland is that I will be creating significant new content myself, rather than simply providing a framework for contributions and hoping for others to do so. Also, the content will generally have an overarching theme, albeit a theme that is wholly defined as “my personal interests”.
The new Nerdland is powered by the WordPress content management system. The design of the site is based on the design and the color scheme of the previous incarnation of Nerdland, but with a cleaner, more minimalist feel. I will probably be tweaking the design frequently over the next few weeks, but the site should remain functional throughout.
All pages and posts on Nerdland, with the exception of the About page and pages that are only indexes to other pages, allow comments. I encourage contributions and remarks from any and all readers. Comments will be moderated for spam and blatant offensiveness, but not much else.
Friends of mine who had “user” pages on the old Nerdland continue to have them under the same URLs as before, although from now on accesses to the user pages will be re-directed to the users.nerdland.net subdomain.
