From 2003-2008 I published two companion blogs (archived; domain ownership now expired) primarily sub nom. “Robosoldiers” and “Continuous Leeks”. These blogs were
written using a blogging program called RogBlog (a PERL script created by Roger Schlafly). I got permission to introduce some small customizations to RogBlog for my own use.
I eventually decided to mirror the blogs on a mirror site (redundantly hosted at a separate domain), but since this was an art project I decided that the mirrored blogs should be what I
called “tru-mirror” viz., horizontal (left-right) mirrors of the original designs. Not perfect mirrors; some of the menu/masthead graphics, and all of the text, was not reversed. My “day job”
was webmaster somewhere. I hung out at my friend’s music studio.
Content-wise, I posted 100+ entries per month covering a bewildering panoply of topics ranging from coding arcanae to military history to modern art. Many posts reveal a formerly strong
conservative political bent. In my leisure time, I tested-out code by making art sites (like one about Shirley Manson I recently recoded here).
Here’s what I wound up with (pics of mastheads, and some content posted on the day I haphazardly took these screenshots for unknown future use):
