It has taken long enough to find the motivation to put something here again, but here we have it. A really plain and rather pathetic blog (god, I hate that "word"). Last night in The Station, our local pub, I mentioned in passing to Liam that I'd found out a few new things about this server during my time at work. We got talking about the old Dovka website and both mentioned that we missed having somewhere to just dump some text, or write an article - you know; that sort of stuff! I also thought it'd be a great way to practice SEO for certain topics, a good place to post any crap about programming or web design etc. that I came across and certainly a good place to post rants about my principle hobby, Counter-Strike.

I did have a look around this morning at the "blogosphere" (another term I hate. I actually grimaced whilst typing it) and there are so many pages that could be carbon copies of each other. If I have to read another post about some person who just finished an awesome layout filled with AJAX, CSS2.x (compatible with 3.x, naturally!) and XHTML1.1S and the obligatory arse-lick comments from passers by that inevitably come with it, I might take a toaster with me next time I take a bath. I'm all for someone celebrating their achievements, but I'm sick of the same achievement being posted again and again ad infinitum on infinite weblogs. Having said all that, I better watch my step. Don't want to be labeled a hypocrite now, do I?
