I’m getting a little bored with WordPress, the size of webpages even without the text seems an awful lot for when is displayed and what I want it to do, and my GoDaddy hosting seems to be getting slower.
So I began looking at alternatives, one of which was ghost.org. While this does seem like it could be a good replacement, it is still in its infancy and I don’t want to put the effort in to make it work the way I want it to right now.
So I will be waiting until plugin support is added, then giving it another considering. I would recommend looking at it though.
I’m currently doing a general cleanup of the blog this morning. I noticed that WordPress doesn’t allow you to order your categories, a quick Google found Category Order which works great, and has a nice Ajax interface.
I’ve also added some of the iOS apps that I’ve worked on, it’s weird how sometimes I come by stuff in my backup drive that I have just plain forgotten I have worked on.
For example, when i was in Sixth Form I was part of a team that made a robot for fighting in a local event Cyber Scraps (very similar to Robot Wars), setup by the nearby nuclear power plant Sellafield. I can’t find any pictures of our robot.
My browser at work seemed to keep the background image, so for now I’ve removed the image from the website so it won’t be able to find it.
At the weekend I’ll see if I can find out whats causing it to appear.
Also at the moment I’m working on trying out some types of pagination for multi-page posts.
Just updated the site theme to v3.0.0, seems WordPress doesn’t notify me when it goes out of date since I was using v1.0.8.
Text seems a lot more crisp in this one.
