So It Goes

I was looking for Windows 97 wallpaper (yes, that’s 97, not 98), and I just know that I’ve got the turquoise version buried on Bugloaf’s archives somewhere (probably several times over, actually). I spent a good half-hour looking for it, before doing an image search on Google and locating it in 30 seconds. I found it on this page: like http://www.insanemath.com/hs_page/theme/wall.gif. It’s still not “quite” what I’m looking for (mainly, a .jpg), but perhaps the .zip file on the site includes it. At any rate, there was once going to be a Win97, before it got pushed back to 1998. Which is also probably why year-based Windows OS releases were phased out in favor of other methods (ME, XP, 7, 8, etc).

While not an exciting story, it helps to explain how my life sometimes is. I just freaking want to do something one way, when the answer lies with someone else, accessible within 30 seconds. I’d still rather search my own databanks for information, partly because looking through old stuff (memories, quotes) is painful, but it’s also nice to see how far I’ve grown as a person.

You’ve probably noticed that Bugloaf doesn’t exactly update daily anymore. Or weekly. Well, life moves pretty fast, and all that. It’s not that I don’t have the free time to update Bugloaf. It’s that I really need to do some other things more often. This site is incredibly time consuming for a hobby. It’s been a lot of fun, but sometimes I just want to read a book, go for a walk, get some project done around my house, and all that. I don’t tend to surf the internet nearly as much as I used to, so it’s also harder to come up with stuff for this site. The stuff I do grab is pulled almost entirely from sites in my lengthy blog-roll, filled with mostly non-blogs.

I greatly appreciate the thousands of hits I’ve had on Bugloaf over the years, and I’m not closing my doors. But I need to get some me-stuff done. So while I’ll be putting some insane amounts of posts on here every month for sure, I’m not sure if I’ll be updating any more often than that.

I just mainly wanted to give you a heads-up, and to say thank-you for visiting. Presurfer, BitsandPieces.us, and Reddit are waiting for you to visit.

Your webjunk poster,

Aaron
