Dopefly update

Popcorn post incoming. I'm kind of tired of seeing how non-mobile-friendly my web site is when I see it in google's search results. Also, I feel a little bit of blogging coming on. That, plus work having calmed down over the last few months, and I upgraded my PC at home, it just feels like the time to clean up a little bit and start typing more.

Did I mention that I'm on Hostek now? It's fantastic and very affordable! Such a great service, I highly recommend it! Better tools honestly encourage me to do more.

Speaking of... maybe I should upgrade my own little blogging software. This is an extension of the 2nd one I wrote, with a couple data migrations, some hacks and bug fixes, and hardcore caching thanks to a previous host I had with an unreliable database. Unfortunately the posting software is just the worst. Clearly I have the skills to do something great here. Some day I'll get to it.

Also, I'm about to remove my own commenting scheme (thanks, spammers) for a regular old Disqus comment system. That's happening in 3... 2... (probably by the time you read this).

So yes, I'm mobile friendly, finally, about 5 years later than I should have been. Flexbox layouts are so stinking simple! I noticed my last post said I was hacking on UWP apps. Thankfully that chapter closed! I'm back on the web, grateful to be doing the kinds of things I want to do.
