It has been said that you can’t know where you’re going until you know where you’ve been. So where this website/blog has been is relevant as the relaunch begins.

Roots

I grabbed the jimmundy.com domain years ago when I owned a small Internet service provider (ISP) back in the late 90s. Originally I used it only for email and then a really crude blog (driven by the Blogger platform). When I returned to school at Kennesaw State University in suburban Atlanta (go Owls!) to complete my bachelors degree one of the classes challenged us to create a website coded purely with HTML. And the longstanding jimmundy.com was born.

Even with my HTML 4.01 compliant site using CSS (state of the art at the time), the site really remained a place holder so folks could find me as I moved around the southeast US.

Now, of course, we have amazing tools like WordPress, and trying to manually code something even as simple as the version of jimmundy.com that you are viewing today in HTML would be way too time consuming. And so the engine under the hood now is WordPress and I am over my guilt about not coding it by hand.

As for content, this site is really a general catch all. As I posted in the last days of the old site, my personal hobbies include ham radio and photography. My professional world as a sales engineer is telecommunications and information security. And posts will span these and other things that interest me and that I think might interest others. Ideally, as I become more comfortable with the platform, I may launch subject matter specific sites for the technical topics.

Most blogs and websites quickly become stale because cranking out content is not easy for many, myself included. But I’m gonna give it my best shot!
