Welcome to my new and much improved home on the web.
I finally overcame my inertia and spent a few hours setting up a WordPress blog. After a year+ of putting up with the geriatric dinosaur that is LiveJournal, I feel like Robin Williams’ character in “Moscow on the Hudson” when he gets his first taste of freedom. WordPress is a far more powerful platform. In fact, it can do way more cool stuff than I even know how to use at this time. As you can see, all the content from the previous blog has been ported over. I also spent a few bucks and registered alexshvartsman.com – so no more clunky web addresses. If you can remember how to spell my surname – which in itself is no small feat – you can find your way over to this page.
Over the next few days I plan to play with my shiny new toy. I’ll check out all the bells and whistles WP has to offer. Who knows, I might even manage to update this blog a little more often. Stay tuned!
