Sorry about the chaos

July 1, 2017 – The devil farted in my face once more…

I’ve been using versions of NetObjects Fusion since the late 1990s to maintain several websites, and after the latest crash of the Malt Madness site I foolishly hoped that I could get the old website reconstructed before I was forced to switch to more modern tools like WordPress.

I couldn’t – and I therefor am…

Even though NetObjects offered me the opportunity to place every pixel where I wanted it, the tool isn’t very stable. Suddenly losing an hour of work because the program freezes is quite frustrating – as is the fact that you can only use so much external links. And because you’re not working directly in ‘the cloud’, the eventual crash of my current PC will also mean that I will be unable to maintain that site. Unless I start from scratch again, I will not be able to keep Malt Madness up to date in the future.

So, now I am going to use this ‘spare’ personal site (the main site at www.johannesvandenheuvel.net still works) to re-acquaint myself with WordPress and hopefully bend it to my will.

You will be able to see for yourself whether or not I succeed…
