I’m genuinely excited about this. I remember going to Brinks as a kid. I was sad when it closed, so I think it’s amazing to see a restaurant come into that space after it’s been vacant for so long.
It’s the end of an era.
Well, two years after complaining about how I’d made it too difficult to post anything to my blog, I’ve decided to just move the whole thing back to WordPress. Hopefully this will be simple enough to encourage me to write more stuff here. We’ll see.
The first order or business is to figure out how to get my archive of posts from the last blog imported into this one. Should be interesting.
I had an idea for a short micro post, went to my Mac to write it.
20 minutes later, after fixing an issue with
rbenv, separating micro-posts from full posts, fixing the build system, etc. I’ve forgotten what I was going to post.
Perhaps my blogging system is too complex.
Perhaps I would blog more if there wasn’t so much friction.
That moment when the file format you’ve been trying to re-engineer starts to make sense to you.
Jim Schutze, on the upcomming city council election for Dallas District 14:
Wood’s waffling on the [Trinity River] park plan is concerning, but I’m too embarrassed to offer it here as a serious argument for anything, because that would be just too East Dallas deep-in-the-weeds hillbilly, and nobody outside of District 14 would even get it.
So let’s say this. The city is on the very verge of a huge change, a generational turnover of power and culture. That’s the hat. District 14 voters will have to make up their minds on that basis. And then we can cut each other’s noses off — that’s the part we really live for anyway.
