wrongtree.info was originally intended to be a blog maintained by my fake publishing company with the sole purpose of promoting my fake book (see previous posts). Due to the overwhelming response of the public (and the extra bandwidth left over in the shed) I have decided to expand the scope of this site.
‘Round about a year ago during a real serious New England cold snap I was laid off from my home-building and remodeling job. I had been laid off from jobs before, and I had a crazy idea this time—instead of spending almost all of my winter downtime lying down and re-watching every season of Futurama two more times, I could use the time to learn something, such as skills. I could even use the time to learn skills that would help me make the jump to a new career, in a different industry, something I had been anxious to do, anyway.
I had some crazy ideas last winter. But it was really cold.
I’m going to start using wrongtree.info to start documenting my exciting life in the exciting world of technology, computers, coding (if easy), and technology-related stuff. It may not be the most interesting topic for all readers (computers, career stuff) but I need somewhere to keep track of all the stuff I’m trying to learn. Also, I probably need to get some writing practice in as long as I’m sitting at a computer for so much of my day. I was thinking I would start a new website or blog in order to practice coding but that plan needs additional research,* and, having already been delaying this documentation project for a year, I thought I might as well start with what I already have going.
I will file all these under the [restart] category.
