After almost ten years, the old VirtualRobin.com has been retired.  You can still visit it at virtualrobin.com/old_virtualrobin if you really want.  That’s where you’ll find the photos and other content.

Why did I do this?  Well, when VirtualRobin first went online there were no blog applications.  There was no easy way to just install something and have a blog.  So I wrote it from scratch.  And I had no idea what I was doing.  As a result it was pretty horrible to use.  Adding photos was a painful process, adding posts wasn’t much better.  Slowly I stopped bothering because it was just too much trouble.  Now, with WordPress taking all of about sixty seconds to set up, there wasn’t much reason for me to keep the old system going except for nostalgia.  I’m hoping that this new blog will be a little more active.
