The Struggle is all I've been working against for the last 10 years since I started this blog. I don't want to say that The Struggle is over, but if it's the mountain I've been climbing I think I'm basically at the top of it now.

You had plenty of options for how to build one but me personally, I was totally fine with Wordpress and Drupal. They didn't force me to know what was going on under the hood to be productive and they provided a way for me to learn that stuff along the way while feeding my family. I learned CSS on the job while building the first couple things I ever built.</p> <blockquote> <p>Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is a...</p></blockquote> Thu, 19 Sep 2019 12:58:56 -0400 Bienvenue https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/314-bienvenue <h2>Problemspace</h2> <p>I haven't posted anything in over a year. I'm almost rusted shut, yet I lately feel the need to commit to creating a new row in the database that backs this blog.</p> <h2>Solutionspace</h2> <p>Just start writing.</p> <p>I've been at this gig for over 3 years now, and I've learned a decent deal about the "real world", the one that I wanted to exist in toward the end of my last career. I scored that tech job, I got bumped up to mgmt about 8 months ago. I actually really enjoy it and I'd kind of...</p> Wed, 18 Sep 2019 17:51:50 -0400 Removing GA tracking https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/313-removing-ga-tracking <p>Well hey, I haven't written anything here in 2018, that's wild.</p> <p>So here's what I'm doing - I'm removing the GA tracker from this blog. I don't check my stats anymore and I suspect what audience there is to this blog probably has ad blocking enabled. Hell, I have ad blocking enabled. Seems kind of hypocritical to have an ad blocker installed so that the eye of tech-Sauron can't follow me as easily around the internet, and yet to have GA tracking on my own blog. So I'm getting rid of it.</p> Fri, 13 Jul 2018 06:45:49 -0400 part 2 https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/311-part-2 <h1>The Book of Platform - 2.md</h1> <h2>Getting started</h2> <p>In this chapter we'll walk through the process of setting up and deploying your very first project on Platform.sh. We'll go through the free trial and checkout process, clone a simple project from a public GitHub repository, and push it to your new Platform.sh project.</p> <p>After that we'll dazzle you with how easy it is to set up development environments for various features with the click of a button. We'll make a couple of simple code changes...</p> Mon, 28 Aug 2017 11:38:54 -0400 The Little Platform.sh Book - Introduction https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/310-the-little-platformsh-book-introduction <p>The internet is hard these days.</p> <p>It started simply enough - for instance, all you really needed was a Geocities account and some initiative to learn HTML and you could have your own place to put whatever you wanted and make it available to the entire world. From such simple seeds, complex structures did grow..</p> <p>Geocities was permanently shut down in 2009, at once both a tragedy for the loss of so much content, so much <em>history</em>, and yet also a wake-up call for so many of us that we needed to...</p> Wed, 23 Aug 2017 07:56:31 -0400 Check in https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/309-check-in <p>So much to say, so much to say..</p> <p>Some day I'll write a memoir, but that day is not this day my friends. The most outwardly memorable thing I've done so far this summer is fly out to Oregon to the String Summit to cover for Mike Devol of Greensky. Mike had a baby a few days before, and back in the winter he called me up to see if I might be interested in covering for him on some summer festival shows. Duh, yes.</p> <p>So I had several months to prepare, but not prepare so much that I got...</p> Tue, 22 Aug 2017 13:37:12 -0400 So that was fun. https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/308-so-that-was-fun <p>I just switched this blog over to a Silex application for a few weeks, but I never got around to adding in the functionality to add new tickets, and add new tags, and link the two together, and all that other stuff that a framework like Laravel just gives you.</p> <p>So we're back.</p> Wed, 05 Apr 2017 06:38:51 -0400 Setting up SSL on your Platform.sh site with Cloudflare. https://www.ignoredbydinosaurs.com/posts/307-setting-up-ssl-on-your-platformsh-site-with-cloudflare <h2>Problemspace</h2> <p>You've got a new site on <a href="https://platform.sh/">Platform.sh</a> that is basically at the end of its development stage, and you're <a href="https://docs.platform.sh/development/going-live.html">preparing to go live</a>. You've decided on <a href="https://www.cloudflare.com/">Cloudflare</a> to host your DNS. Cloudflare is a good choice for smaller sites, and I recommend it often.
