Among Other Items, my humble blog, has been undergoing a bit of a change behind the scenes. Formerly, this site was powered by an old desktop computer, probably released in 2002, which had been converted into a Debian server. Now, this site is powered by a Raspberry Pi, a $35 computer which is running a… Continue reading AOI, now powered by Raspberry Pi!
The name of this blog, “Last Temporary Name,” was a play on the fact that I could never decide on what to name this blog.

In addition to this blog, I am now (at least occasionally) blogging on two other blogs out there in the world: Southern Sources and BlueNC. They’re both very different, obviously: Southern Sources is the blog of the Southern Historical Collection, where I work as a manuscripts processor. Things posted there are probably going to be… Continue reading Blogging here, there, and everywhere!
The Wren Building at the College of William and Mary. The most famous building on campus and the building where I had a lot of my classes. All of my Religious Studies ones in fact. And I was going to write something about religion, but I’m not going to. Instead I’m going to metablog, because… Continue reading Back at William & Mary
