bn.net Has Moved to a New Host!

I'm happy to announce billnapier.net, and my wife's dawnsdarktreasures.com, have moved to HotDrupal. I asked around on a Drupal group on Facebook. I received a lot of great responses. I chose to jump right in to HotDrupal as they had decent prices and have the servers tweaked to run Drupal. We moved away from Smarterasp.net as a host. They had a catastrophic failure of some type. Both of our sites were completely wrecked. What was terrible about it was the fact that I was almost finished adding content to both sites.

The Site Is Growing!

More content is being added periodically. I have most of my Python page loaded. There may be some rogue scripts that slipped through my fingers. When I find them, I'll post them. I'll start on batch loading something else soon. The front page is coming along nicely. I have featured my newest flash fiction "The Lake". Please take a look. It's an amateur attempt at Lovecraft's Mythos, but I just cranked it out in sessions during lunch. Even so, it's fun. Lovecraft had many stories and he had created several well recognized types.

billnapier.net Has Been Overhauled Yet Again

Welcome to the bigger, better billnapier.net! The site has changed and grown in many ways. As I learn new things, I tend to rebuild the entire site. This one, is my first time using both a template, and a content management system. It feels like I'm cheating as I'm used to hand coding everything. This experience hasn't been without its issues. A CMS is not terribly easy to learn for someone who is used to building everything. I have backups of everything I've ever done on this domain. I still have the original billnapier.net. It's quite hilarious. It looks like an early 90's site.
