Welcome to VHS Overdrive

Here you'll find assorted writings about things I'm passionate about. I'm not on any kind of deadline, and I'm not setting myself any kind of schedule, but I do hope to regularly update things around here and help provoke some thoughts. Whether you agree with me or not, I hope you'll find something here that you enjoy as much as I do.

I picked the name VHS Overdrive because it reminds me of the 80s and 90s, which is a part of my life that I'm often nostalgic for. It was a simpler time, and this is my way of trying to capture a little of that magic again. The color scheme was inspired by the old P3 phosphor monochrome displays that I did a lot of my coding on in college. They were old systems even by the time I started working with them, but again I have fond memories of that time.

So, here it is. My little homestead on the web. It’s been a long time since I’ve published a site, but I’ve got a lot of experience doing it - mostly because I’m just old. In any case, I figured that before we really dive into things, I might want to take a minute to detail just exactly why I’m going to this much effort. I’m not making any money at it, and I honestly don’t think very many people will read anything I put here. So what’s the point?

So there you have it. My justification for building this thing. It's probably delusional ego stroking, but I don't care. It's important to me to get some of this stuff out there, and If anybody else finds it interesting or useful then that's good enough. Anyway, I hope you'll enjoy your time here. Come back every now and then; I might have something new for you.
