Overview

This site is the online repository for all things related to Scott Bradford: fiction, opinion, news, music, and more. It was started in 1995 and is now at version 25.0 (25.0.20/5.2.3). Don’t forget to try and find the Easter Egg, and let me know if you do!

The site is managed using WordPress, a PHP/MySQL-based blogging and content management system, and makes use of common web standards. More information about the technologies used to make this site can be found on the Technology page.

Retro Websites

Here, you can view original or replica layouts of my site and related sites from over the years. These are layout demos, so the links will not work and some dynamic functions won’t either, but they will give you an idea of how that particular version of the site looked.

Off on a Tangent

Previous versions of this site, which was known at different times as Website [Version] and Intersanity.

Notes:

  1. I have no available archive of Website 7. It was probably very similar to Website 8.
  2. Beginning with Website 13, Off on a Tangent was managed using the Movable Type content management system. Previous to this, the site had been manually-managed flat HTML.
  3. Beginning with Website 16, Off on a Tangent was managed with the Mambo content management system, and shortly thereafter migrated to Joomla (a fork of Mambo).
  4. Beginning with Website 20, Off on a Tangent has been managed with the WordPress content management system.

Scott Bradford has been building web sites and using them to say what he thinks since 1995, which tended to get him in trouble with power-tripping assistant principals at the time. He holds a bachelor’s degree in Public Administration from George Mason University, but has spent most of his career (so far) working on public- and private-sector web sites. He is not a member of any political party, and brands himself an ‘independent constitutional conservative.’ In addition to holding down a day job and blogging about challenging subjects like politics, religion, and technology, Scott is also a devout Catholic, gun-owner, bike rider, and music lover with a wife, two cats, and a dog.
