While I'm in Facebook jail, I've decided I'm just going to post stuff I would have posted there to here. It's a bit of a pain because this blogging software currently takes over an hour to do an update, but what the hey...

This social isolation business may mean I'll have the time to migrate to new blogging software. I've found a few static website generators (I'm not a fan of WordPress or other server-side content management systems) and have actually looked at some of them.

While the number of people the KGB Report Facebook page reaches is not trivial (>10,000), I'm getting really tired of being warned about posting items which "violate Facebook's community standards," the standards being what a piece of brain-dead AI software can comprehend.

Stay tuned.
