Changing Spaces

So I think I’m done with WordPress. I like being able to write with Markdown. WordPress makes that difficult. Yes, there’s the Markdown block, but it’s still something of a WYSIWYG.

I suppose they’re catering to less techy people, and that’s fine. But it doesn’t suit me well.

Slack recently updated their text input to a rich editor that automatically formats their (odd) flavor of Markdown as you type. It’s okay in that context, but I like being able to compose in a basic text editor and then just copy/paste into the blog site.

So I’m going start this up again, and I’m going to do it with GitHub Pages. I’m also working on transferring all of the posts from here to there. I might write a post about the process, but don’t hold your breath.

It’s been this long since I previously posted. A bit longer won’t hurt. I’ve already got a new one up on my feelings regarding C# 8. It’ll be my first post on the new site.

I’ll put up a new short post here when I have the other site up. Ideally, I’d like to configure a redirect, but I don’t know if I can do that.

Edit

It’s up!! I’d like to present my new GitHub Pages site! I still have some work to do as far as theming. I have literally no web experience, so it’s going to be a journey.

The article is just one of many over the past few years that talk about task management tools and why Trello is inadequate, and decided that I’m tired of Trello being lumped in with apps that are specifically designed around application development and team/task management.

Goodbye, Daley. You will be missed.

We need to take a break from code for a moment to discuss another important matter. I’m going to do my best to make this not sound like an obituary, but in some ways, it feels like it should be.

Friday evening, I was faced with the news that the Dallas Stars had made a trade: Trevor Daley and Ryan Garbutt sent to the Chicago Blackhawks in return for Patrick Sharp and Stephen Johns. Most of the analyses have centered on what Sharp can bring to the Stars, but I’m heartbroken by who they lost. Continue reading “Goodbye, Daley. You will be missed.”
