My old blog is still around

Due to a server crash my old web hosting service shut its doors. Thankfully the administrator is a solid guy and was able to give me the last backup dump of my website. Unfortunately, migrating to my new server has been a pain in the ass and I can’t get Drupal fully cooperate. For some reason I cannot login or stay authenticated with that instance. There is probably a simple fix but whatever it is, I haven’t been able to find it for the past 3 days so I give up.

Counter-intuitively, mostly for SEO reasons, my old blog is available at This new blog on will continue to have the dry, heavily technical cut and paste instructions while I teach myself various engineering things.

In summary:
