Hiya, anyone left reading this! Tech_Advancer here!

It's been almost 5 years since I last posted anything to this site and the age of the information is showing badly. You're probably wondering what I've been doing for the last 5 years now. I've been working for some large companies doing web development, web security, and DevOps. There was so much that I needed to learn that I didn't even know where to begin for the information dump that I'd have to put on my website to catch everything up to modern practices.

After 5 years now, I think I have an idea on how to tackle the problem and get the website back into the modern world. I'm going to break down everything I learned between the end of college and now. The goal is to make this a useful reference for people still in school or for people that recently graduated.

It's probably going to take me a while to organize all of my thoughts, but in the next few months, expect the website to get a giant dump of new posts all at once. The main problem is that the tool I was using to edit the site has drastically changed since I last used it and it doesn't work anymore. (I'm writing this post directly in the database.) So, I'll have to find or build a new website backend, which will take a while.

Also, I saw our forums got hacked. They were very out of date, so I pretty much expected that. I just deleted them for now. I'm still deciding if I should re-open them or not. In any case, a major reorganization is coming in the next few months.

jackobuddy, if you're out there and see this, send me a message! I haven't heard from you in ages! It would be cool to catch up and see how things are going!
