A large part of what I post on this blog has to do with new stuff: new technologies, new services, new trends. In order to offset this large amount of information regarding new things, I’m going to periodically write articles under the heading “Backlog”, i.e. articles regarding slightly older technologies and tools, but ones which are still useful today. Don’t worry, I’ll try my best not to turn them into boring history lessons, wherever possible I’ll be drawing comparisons with modern alternatives and giving instructions to put these time-tested utilities to work for yourself. I intend to post one Backlog article a week, starting from next week. And also from next week I intend to post at least every alternate day, if not everyday. Once again, thanks to all my readers for sticking with me through a dry spell and I will try not to disappoint again.
