After the last upgrade of WordPress, some minor aspects of my website are still broken. I don’t really have the energy any longer to fight WP, tinker with its godawful PHP innards, and fix those problems after each major update.
In other words, I’m nearing a conclusion to dump WP altogether. Still don’t know what I’ll do instead, but maybe rolling my own is the best solution in such a case. It will give me ultimate control, as well as a fun project to hack on. To avert the danger that this will be one of those eternal projects that will be finished only after the Internet is replaced with something else, I will continue blogging using the existing platform in the meantime. If you run into some glitch with the website, please let me know.
P.S. recommendations for a good hosting / platform to run Python 3 web apps would be appreciated.
