I’ve deleted all of the users that were in this site. I had to do it. There were over 3000 spam accounts in the database and I just had to kill them all.
If you had a user account on here and you commented on previous articles, sorry. You can use a G+, Facebook, or wordpress.com account to post. I will not be allowing user registration on this site any longer.
I got tired of wrestling with Hugo and the static site generators. At some point, when you’re too old and have too much to do, you just punt to what worked in the past. WordPress is still slow, clunky, and the wordpress.com app is just incredibly lethargic.
But I’m trying to move to an iPad on iOS 11 as much as possible and I just needed something that would work. I was able to hook things up over git with Lambda (see earlier post). Sometimes, though, things would just break for no reason at all. I don’t know why. I also don’t know why wordpress.com and the Dreamhost MySQL backends are just slow as hell.
If I had the money I’d move my WordPress sites out to AWS and use CloudFront. But I just don’t have that kind of cash, sadly, so I’ll keep them on Dreamhost for now.
Sorry about the shifting. If anyone is still around and reading this blog, please speak up and say hello.
