The New York Times Sunday Magazine cover story today is entitled: Ghosts in the Machine. It's about how one's online life lives-on after death.

Or maybe not.

My former blog host, Blog-City, is calling it quits and I either misunderstood or they lied, but I am no longer able to access my old blog's admin pages. They did send me CSV files, but cannot figure out how to convert them into data that is usable.

I knew the demise of Blog-City was coming and had slowly been copying and pasting entries into WordPress, but I didn't get far. There is a a gap between February 2004-March 2005. And a really big gap between March 2005 to October 2008.

In retrospect the timespan of the missing entries were not the happiest days of my life, but I'm sad to lose the archive.
