Back in the day, I ran a dial-up bulletin board named My UnKnown BBS. This blog is the reincarnation of that board, more or less. Shout out to Erik 'the' Ratcliffe who did run across this whine fest. Another to the members of Net-109, or at least those who might remember me. Same goes for the TriBBS SysOps of the world, what few are left. Oh, the name "Kuramarujo" is my Shikona, or fighting name, in Sumo. I play a few of the virtual sumo games (think Fantasy Football) under this name.
Ever since I started running the WebTrek server back in 1995, I have run it on my own system. First it was co-located in MD at a friend of mine's site. Then I ran it from home. But now, I will be moving it to a virtual server with the company 1&1 Internet. This will cost less and give me as good, or better, service. With this move I hope to start working as a consultant again. Some of the things I'm considering are -
Custom web application development
Custom mobile app development
PC game development
Mobile game development
Anything else I can think of
There's also the potential of reselling web service but that seems a bit out of reach at this time.
The key is going to be my getting organized. That's not something I'm known for, though.
It's been unreal here lately. After Mum had the stroke my son got into some difficulties that have taken up whatever free time I might find. Not only that, our financial situation is, well, crap. It's never been this desperate before.
Now that school has started back up I'll have time to try to find some kind of work. I want to get back into blogging here, too.
