RubberTreePlant began somewhere over a decade ago, as a place for me to drop “excess” ideas, make comments and post interesting snippets where I could find them again. It went on hiatus in 2006, when the custom written website vanished after the company hosting the domain managed to mess things up, and lost the database.
Malaise ensued, and I couldn’t be bothered to re-instate everything – the hours of hand coding, the awesome scripts that confused spammers, the general messing around. Fast forward a few years, and now everyone has a WordPress blog. I have always had at least a few other websites (though none personal) and after stumbling across an old SQL dump of the site from 18th June 2005 I figured that, well, I can put this site back up in half an hour, if I put it onto WordPress’ platform and backend.
Obviously I figured without the annoying nature of the old SQL dump, and so the posts have to be piped in by hand, but we are getting there. If you see anything that is broken, or obviously out of whack, just leave a comment, and I’ll sort it out (or perhaps delete it if the rest of the info is gone into the ether.) There quite a bit of spring cleaning to do, but hey, with all this global warming, it’s like spring already. Certainly the wasps are already about!
