Reboot …

If you’ve been to Drewslair.com before, you’ll notice some changes this time around. After more than a dozen years of managing the site with manual tools, I’ve finally decided to got to a content management system (CMS), specifically WordPress. In the last year, I’ve put my design energies into a new website at AndrewComeau.com and hadn’t done much with this site. When I looked at it again a few weeks ago, I realized that it no longer met the standard that I wanted associated with my name so it was time for a redesign.

This blog has been present on the site for a few years under another address and I decided to move it over to serve as the primary site.  I found out in the process how easy it is to move a WordPress blog from one subdomain to another and that was a nice bonus.

A couple of the old articles from Drewslair.com remain but, to be honest, much of the Microsoft Access content was obsolete and other things have been moved to AndrewComeau.com so what you see here now is pretty much what there is. I’ve had the idea to start blogging about some of the many software and online resources that I’ve found over the last couple years and as I find time around a new full-time job that I’ve taken, honing my skills with PHP and MySQL and maybe doing some more work on a new book project, I’ll be doing that here.
