Hi, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve head a blog post. I’m not dead or anything, don’t worry, I just haven’t been that inspired to write much of anything. I think the trick is going to be to write less for some imagined audience and more about whatever it is that’s on my mind. I have to understand that not all of my readers will enjoy all of my posts, but as near as I can tell this is the only weather/sports/sysadmin/high-performance computing/high-throughput computing blog in the whole world. So I’m writing this first, and then I’ll get a few posts pre-written to give me a bit of a buffer. Oh boy, this should be exciting!
