Preparing for the Centrale Retirees

| No Comments | 4 TrackBacks

The Centrale/{retired} category is being furnished as retirement quarters for previously-active Centrale subcategories.

That may seem a little strange but it works.

A category is implemented under Movable Type as a subdirectory of the blog.  Nested categories fit into nested subdirectories.

I want to capture historical information about the various components of Centrale that go back to even before there was a LAN and workgroup named Centrale to tie them together.

While I’m doing that, I will use the expanded categories that go back to the beginning of my adventure with personal computers.

Later, when I’ve captured and said enough to suit my purposes, I will remove the category from use.  That won’t delete the pages created under those categories though.  And even though the category structure will be streamlined and simpler to navigate, they retired categories will still have their pages available.

This {retired} category will tie those category-specific subdirectories into an index page here as their categories achieve emeritus venerability.

I am seeding all of the new categories with posts so that they will be included in my backup procedures and archived on my development web site from now on.  I can then populate them further as time permits and the spirit moves me.

For reasons that I am uncertain about, I created a structure of five categories on this blog.  I don’t need those particular ones.  I might not need any (well, maybe just two, plus the no-category top level).  In particular, some... Read More
