Contrary to what the first post says, there seems to be no obvious need to write any more about the process of creating a blog from scratch. Oh, you may notice a few minor tweeks since that post: The color scheme now looks more like the rest of the CyberJerry web pages. Have converted completely away from mysql. Made a small collection of my favorite quotes to display at random on the top of the side bar. Mostly, the past two weeks have been spent testing and shaking out bugs, a process that will surely continue.

In concord with the first post, I believe Jerry's Blog has become pretty much what was intended: A simple tool that should run well on a variety of devices, with reasonable security and without the need to keep up with the demands of Blogspot, Facebook, or LinkedIn, which are constantly 'upgrading' their platforms. I repeat my offer to accept suggestions and criticisms from any and all visitors.

Having said that, this current post represents (perhaps) the last post written about the blog itself. Jerry's Blog is intended to be a tool, not an end in itself, but a means to an end. From now on, I'd like to focus on the end goal: exchanging thoughts and opinions on a variety of subjects which may be of common interest. Or, at least, which are of interest to me, while freely welcoming input from others who share those interests.

I suspect my attention will now turn to my Sudoku Analyzer, and to a "Sudoku Challenge" that I would like to offer soon. Stay tuned.

Blogging about blogging
Writing my own blog. No, that doesn't mean writing posts on a new Blogspot or Wordpress blog. It means creating the blog itself - designing server database tables, writing the webpages and blog scripts, debugging, re-thinking, re-working. . . the whole software development cycle.

What 'meta blog' means is that the first few posts of this new blog will probably be about the progress and regress of the above. Blogging about making a blog. And in this case, blogging about starting over again from scratch, on a new hosting server.

To begin, here are my initial design decisions:

  • Simplicity. I have no interest in top-heavy 'features' as characterized in sites such as Blogspot and Facebook, but a simple no-frills platform in which to communicate and exchange ideas.
  • Compatibility. The aim is to run on a variety of platforms, including old hardware and slow connections.
  • Flexibility. As the programmer, I look forward to being able to make changes as I see fit, without having to depend upon Google engineering decisions.

Would also like to hear any suggestions you might have.

We just can't trust the American people to make those types of choices.... Government has to make those choices for people.
