parsing feeds is always a pain. Don’t parse feeds inside the template engine kids :-)
Why blog? One key reason is for framing offline and organic discussions — they’re the best. Online discussions tend to devolve into “peanut gallery” takes for any range of topics. You can’t know it all, but being in the gallery is fun?
It’s painful to realize that a program’s state is name spaced wrongly/scattered. You’ve then got to either accept the complexity or rewrite select portions + migrate to a more correct data hierarchy. Databases exist to make that easier.
Though, the simplest form of system administration is when you only have to backup/copy state directories from one computer to the next.
is a solid tactic. No one “inspect elements” every site. Everyone’s a user, even programmers — they won’t know until someone tells them.
