For a few years, I had been storing public notes to myself (that might possibly be useful to others) at http://asheesh.org/scratch/.
Then OpenHatch happened in May 2009, and I paid decreasing attention to that site.
Eventually, as a semi-unprotected MediaWiki instance, it became spammed to smithereens.

- Clicked every link off the front page, and manually reverted it to the most recent non-vandalized page I could find.

Honestly, it is a huge relief to see those old bits of text back on the web. It makes me feel so much more pleasantly connected to the timeline.
