A Fresh Start
Posted on 27 Apr 2014 By Colin

So i backed up my old dotcom and then flat out deleted it. Now i am sorta scrambling to put together a placeholder while i slowly patch together a new one. The old site was a slow evolution from early html/photoshop learning up to a massive patchworked site that still didnt fit what i had imagined for it.

A few years back i tried to advance the site by adding a content editor that allowed comments, only to learn bots heavily preferred that system and after receiving 800 spam messasges all comments were banned, the content editor itself was clunky and what was supposed to make posting easier and faster only led to me posting less so i decided to go back in time. I was happier hardcoding everything and my html/css skills back then were much sharper, you can keep your web 2.0 features ill stick to notepad and my keyboard thank you very much.

so over the next little while this site will be very ugly while i nail down exact widths and heights of this and that and formats, then ill get back to the multi-design rotation of days of old, just my goal this time is to not use stock photos and to have everything done by me or at least done by someone i know who is ok with me using their photos.

time to open another beer and work.

later days
