Views from the Vault…

Date: August 1, 2010

This is a new template, for a new “sub-blog”…

This will be the home, of old writings I’ve done over the years…

Potentially, some of what will show up here, may be over a decade old…though, I may be unable to date it, precisely.

This is really a glimpse into the past…and some of my viewpoints have evolved, considerably…I may discuss this, as such issues arise.

While I am on the issue, I want to just say one thing about all the content I’ve written and lost, over the years…

In my very early days, I saved nothing…

Within a year, I’d started experimenting with, and developing, websites…[“Steve-D’s Home Page” on GoPlay, “Steve-D’s Faith and Reflections” on FreeYellow, “Steve-D’s Midnight Zone” on Talk City, “The Midnight Archives”, Etc.]. I saved quite a lot of my writing, from that point onward…because I was going to ad some of it to a website.

Tragically, I did not own a computer in those days, and my only option for saving such content, was to copy and paste it into a private, online service, that could save it for me…I chose my eudoramail account…which worked great, until they switched the software they were running on…This screwed up many of these files, and even made some irretrievable.

I was literally sickened, and heartbroken, over five or six, specific articles, that were lost in this manner…and would love to have them, today.

…But, I still do have, a good bit of content from that time era…Not nearly as much as I’d like [and a wider range in scope, would have been nice, also]…but…there are still a lot of really good bits, in there.

Some of these might seem a bit jumbled…Some of them are contrary to my present viewpoints…A lot of them, are direct responses to specific people [at BoyChat, ClosEncounters, and other forums]…

I hope people will find this to be an interesting journey into the past…and, maybe, it will revive some old discussions on relevant issues.
