Our first post here was on 26 August 2008, so we’ve made it to 5 years with 275 posts now in the archive here. I’d like to thank all my regular readers and subscribers for their support over the years. As I’ve said before, I run this blog in my spare time so page views, subscriber numbers and reader comments mean a lot. If you’re new here, have a look through the archives and categories in the side bar or search for a topic that interests you. Please subscribe if you can.
What sort of things are covered here? Well, I’m currently looking at moving to Linux from Windows 7. I’ve written three posts in that series and there are more to come. I have a Google Nexus 10 tablet and will probably soon change my HTC Legend smartphone for a Google Nexus 4 given the price drop announced yesterday so I’ll be blogging about that and useful Android apps for both. I chose the domain name Tech and Life so it allows me scope to cover stuff outside tech so you’ll occasionally get some posts about my philosophies on life.
Finally, just to leave you with something useful, what else was happening 5 years ago? I came across a post on Reddit recently about catching up on news if you’ve been away for a while. Just search your chosen month and year in Wikipedia. You can use this to check out what was happening for example 5 years ago as this blog was starting up. The Summer Olympics were on in Beijing, and Illinois Senator Barack Obama accepted the nomination of the Democratic Party, becoming the first African American to be nominated by a major party for election as President of the United States.
