This is the 2,000th post I’ve done for this blog. In less than two years. The amount of people looking at this blog has increased since I started so I thought that I would share some posts that are cool, but almost nobody else has seen. This is stuff I posted a long time ago, but that didn’t get seen or noticed. Some of these are stuff that I would now put in a tech stuff post. Some of it is just stuff that never got noticed when I posted it.
