This blog turns 10 years old in September. I started blogging in summer 2002, actually, but didn't keep it up. For a few years I put a lot of effort into this site. In those days it was one of the most important things in my life. (I do not say this wistfully.)
That was a long time ago. This site has run its course.
I'll be shutting waxbanks.typepad.com down in the next couple of months, and settling both waxbanks.net and tortles.org at a different server. Wordpress, most likely. My blog archives, accessible at the link up above, will probably come down at that time, though I'll repost some of the archives in one form or another.
For updates, follow me on twitter.
To everyone who's read and commented on this site since 2003, from the bottom of my heart, thank you.
