Life, Tech and Unimportant Minutiae


Created by Charles on 4/22/2022.

I don't know how or why you are here - in truth everything here is, and always will be, best classified as personal minutiae... the very definition of meaningless - a blast from past when internet was a a different place, bits of life floating peacefully in the dark void of the forgotten outer reaches of the net... the only new thing likely to happen here is more randomness thrown into this strange rippleless deep!

Why are you here again?


In 2006 I started writing on using and for a good few years I wrote about tech, life and adventures. By the 2010s the posts were all about adventures, more and more about the Santa Catalina Mountains. The site was never taken offline but it was last updated in 2015.

In the early 2010s I started another site - - on which I put notes about what I was reading, watching and listening to. That effort ended in 2013...

These first sites informed my efforts on Hike Lemmon! | Hiking and Adventures in the Santa Catalina Mountains which I started in the mid 2010s. For many years that site took all my attention - and of course the 2010s were huge for Facebook, Instgram, Twitter and other now forgotten social media sites that at the time seemed useful and important.

Since 2019 my focus has changed - Pointless Waymarks and the software to generate it Pointless Waymarks Cms: A .NET 7 WPF Gui for Static Site Generation have taken my time and attention, I'm rarely on social media and a new house last year has meant fewer adventures.

Sometime in 2022 I looked back at, enjoyed it, and with the Pointless Waymarks CMS in a very usable state converted the tech and life posts to this new version of the site along with the content from The posts related to the Santa Catalina Mountains will move to a new version of HikeLemmon (in progress atm) and adventure posts about areas outside of the Catalinas have been moved to PointlessWaymarks.

If you're reading this you are either here randomly and are unimaginably deep into the long tail of content on the internet or your a friend - either way send me an email, charles at cmiles dot info, and say hello, if nothing else I will be glad to congratulate you on somehow finding this!
