Some site maintenance

I’ve been doing a bit of overdue site maintenance this evening. My picture gallery has somehow become corrupted, so I’ve spent the last couple of hours backing up the files that weren’t on CD at the house, un-installing it, and re-installing it.
My website is fairly old. I wrote the code for this site some six and a half years ago on ASP.NET 1.0. It’s due for an upgrade fairly soon, and I’ve been working on new web software using ASP.NET 4.0. My hosting provider supports ASP.NET 4.0 now, so It’s probably time for at least an upgrade of the web site software – that will probably happen over the next month or so.
The blog won’t be going away, and I plan to (resolve in 2013 to) start posting regularly and considerably more often again. I know one or two people that will like that – assuming I manage to stick to the plan (hey, I kept my 2012 resolution after all).
Suggestions for topics are welcome – add them to the comments here. If there are things you think don’t work, let me know. My initial plans are subject to change, but a few items are in the works. First of all, I’m going to drop the political content. I’m not really that interested in the ephemeral politics of the day. The philosophical content on natural rights vs. the rights of man will remain. I plan to write in more detail about our founding documents and what they actually say – and how that applies to our rights and responsibilities as citizens. Expect more references in the content as well, such as the table of footnotes for this post.
The software upgrade for the site will probably take place sometime this summer. Some of the older content will be archived away in the next month or so. New content has already begun to appear.

Hip hip hooray!
You have long been one of my mostest favoritest bloggers, and I belong to that group of people who keep checking in to see if you've finally posted again. Your return to blogging is the first cheerful news I've heard in some time.
