Well, we can kiss another one goodbye. And good riddance. Welcome to Twenty-Twenty-Too. Beer is in the fridge, I’ve got Jameson for those who like it a bit stronger, and I’ve got bong hits for those who partake.
I, for one, never expected to make it this far. My ticket was only going to get me as far as 2020 before I hopped off and found some other plane to occupy.
But here I am. Old, tired, and well, cranky. If I had a lawn, I’d tell you to get off of it.
So groovy — We have another year to fiddle-fuck around in.
But that isn’t why I am here.
The last time that any major work was done on this site was back in 2013. This thing is literally falling apart from all the patching and tourniquets that have been applied in order to keep it running. It reminds me of my liver.
It needs a major overhaul. A bunch of stuff here needs to be archived, and the poor database needs to be retired. I don’t know how many times in the past couple of months that either I or one of my people have had to pull the gremlins out of this thing to get it back up online. It’s old code, and much of it is no longer valid. It’s all going to have to be rewritten and brought up to modern times.
So over the next few weeks, I am going to be throwing this thing into “Maintenance Mode” on a regular basis while I test some new things out here. Sometimes you might come here and find that I’ve installed a random theme while I am working here. When that happens, you should still be able to read and write here.
I don’t have a lot of time, so I will be working off and on here over the next three or four months. I will TRY to keep as unobtrusive as possible.
If you have a wish list of features you’d like to see here, tell me in the comments.
