CHOPDEWEY.COM

I’m thinking maybe I should resurrect ChopDewey.com. Same shit, new and extended packaging. A complete CMS w/message board, user-and self-generated articles, plus content aggregated from across the web (AKA as “theft”, but everybody does it, including the big guys, so it must be OK). Show of hands, waddayall think? I already own the license for the message board, but will have to shell out a few hundred extra for the complete CMS (if I decide to go with a platform I’m familiar with, i.e. vBulletin). I could also go with something completely free and open source such as Joomla, but I’d have to learn how to use it and also dig around the web for plugins and extensions to get all the functionality I want.

Now I really regret taking down the original ChopDewey without saving the email list, since I had so many friends there I’d like to contact and invite should my new project come to life (that was an insider joke).

Introductory Post

Hey, I’m Lars. Who the fuck are you?

I’ve been meaning to get this blog up and running for ages, but between having nothing better to do and only twenty-four hours a day to not do it, I couldn’t find the time. Yet, here it is. I first tried Joomla, but it was just too complicated, so I went with WordPress.

OGNDY.com resides on my wife’s web hosting account (thank you, sweetheart). I guess that makes her legally responsible for everything I write. Please instruct your lawyers to address any complaints to her.

OGNDY is an acronym for Old Geezer Not Dead Yet. That would be me. It’s my mission to tell you the truth about everything, so you can just go ahead and delete all of your bookmarks; OGNDY is all you need.

The next several posts (everything in the category Getting Started) will be old stuff used as filler posts just to get shit going.

I know I do not own and have no right to use the header image. I’ll take it down shortly, as soon as I find a decent replacement.
