Whilst I’ve been going though all the data that needs to be migrated to the new site it’s become apparent just how much I’ve forgotten, but I’ve also been surprised how much I’ve remembered. Whilst writing some of the texts it seems like only yesterday when I was living and breathing this technology on a daily basis.
I do wish I had somebody else who I could reminisce with and bounce ideas around. I’ve got some glaring holes in my knowledge and with little documentation or anybody else seeming to know anything about these machines I’m pretty much on my own with this. Still it’s fun to dig back into all this again.
I’m trying to be more organised about how I lay this site out compared to the previous incarnation, but it’s hard work. I start talking about one subject, which then branches into two more subjects, and each of those branch into more subjects. There’s so much to write and document and it all needs doing at the same time. I’m having to make notes of posts that I will need to go back and insert links in once I’ve written additional posts.
What I am annoyed about though is that I had a lot of pictures in my archive but I never labelled them correctly; I obviously elected to trust my memory – stupid boy. It means I’m going to have to go back and figure out exactly what some things are. Still, once it’s done, it’s done.
