They always did say you were supposed to say this.
When you did something new, or different, or maybe brave.
You got your little program – for that’s what we called them in those days; not apps – to say: “Hello world!” And I guess the idea was, being as it was a kinder world in those days, the world would care to say – in some thoughtful way – a real and wondrous hello back.
This site is a tumbledown repository of things that will be broken, half-baked, of occasional interest, of no interest at all.
But its main function, its primary aim, is to allow me to say one final goodbye to a past of incomplete achievement.
The rest of my life is ahead of me.
That is really all we need to know.
