Dopefly update

posted under category: General on February 12, 2019 at 8:27 pm by Nathan

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.


Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
