I’m on Facebook!
Hey everyone. In case you haven’t already noticed the new plugin on the right side of the page, Milepost 15 is now on Facebook at: http://www.facebook.com/milepost15. I’ll be using the Facebook page to share daily (or near-daily) updates on whatever projects I happen to be working on as well as the occasional one-off trackside photo and other quick things that don’t require an entire blog post. In-depth posts will continue here same as they always have, which is never as often as I’d like, but I do have some interesting stuff coming up over the next few months, so stay tuned!
