This is the home of my 2nd personal wiki.

The first wiki post

About Wills & Probate, the first post on snipsnap.

The Cobalt Qube dies.

The blog server hardware in my home died. The bliki content became unavailable.

Hosting by AWS

My bliki, snipsnap, is now back on-line, hosted by Amazon.

Transfer to 1and1 WordPress

This is the date of the Hello World post! It represents the establishment of this wiki instance at this address.

Restoring Snipsnap content

I recovered the file system dump of the Snipsnap bliki and started the of restore wiki content, Some was not brought forward.

The end of my snipsnap bliki

The migration of my snipsnap bliki to davelevy.info is completed. Most of the wiki articles have been transferred.

Nulis theme

I installed the Nulis theme.


This first was held in a snipsnap wiki, hosted on a Cobalt Qube and then Amazon. I started to copy it to here, a wordpress wiki hosted at 1and1;  I started the transition on in June 2013. Some of the dates set in the new wiki, for articles and comments are not particularly accurate. Not everything was brought over, although currency was not the major test.  Some pages were merged; particularly those that are likely to be irrelevant such as stuff about my old mobile phones. It also shocks me that this little wiki is longer lived than some of my source material. In particular much of the Bioware Community Forums material and now the Neverwinter Nights’ Vault have disappeared.

  1. The code posting plugin has changed, the code snip names must be globally unique it would seem, mine are uniqe within post. 🙁 I need to fix this.

  2. When I moved to Nulis, I made the following comment.

    I tested the theme with current browsers, Firefox, Opera and Internet Explorer. I know that the theme is not compatible with IE 8, which makes it unusable in some workplaces. (Some of the content is relevant to some people’s work.)

    I have moved it to the comments today.
