This Is An Old Blog

This blog started in the winter of 2008. I'd been in the industry for a few years and Django had reached 1.0. I figured it was time to make myself a blog, knowing, even then, that it was completely unnecessary. I just wanted the practice.

My last post (something not-that-great about Christmas) was, until now, from December 2012.

Anyway, a lot has changed in the software world. I've also caught up with a few things I wish I'd known 10 years ago.

So, lacking anything else to write about. I'm going to try and refurbish this blog and write about that.

Here's just a few of the things to address:

  • deployment - this thing deployed via git, I wouldn't mind making it into a tidy little docker image
  • Django version - running on Django 1.0, which is only 13 major releases out of date
  • CI/CD - didn't have any, now I want some
  • tests - LOL
  • new server - this thing is snuggled into a janky 14.04 server. I want to move to my new 18.04 server
  • new postgres - the older server's running Postgresql 9.3
  • new design - It'd be nice if this thing looked a little better
  • disable comments - I think I only ever got about 10 actual comments. The remaining >30,000 are all spam.
