Harvey

Years ago my mother used to say to me, she’d say, “In this world, Elwood, you must be” — she always called me Elwood — “In this world, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.” Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. And you may quote me.

Software Update (or E/N = Old)

So, forgo daily has been around for a while. From back in the days when ‘blogs’ were ‘E/N‘ sites. Obviously, the Everything/Nothing name didn’t last (you can still see me here). It’s been 6 years, but forgo daily is still running the same software to post the news (you can search or browse the archives all the way back). Admittedly it’s severely modified and hacked apart by now, but it still may be recognizable as News Publisher by Grant somebody (whose site was apparently hosted by Roosh who is harder to find now but is a DJ in D.C. — ahh, the nostalgia).

Anyway, the thing I like about what I have now is that the comments for posts are handled by the forum. So, there’s one place to go to see all forgo daily posts and comments and forum posts. Everything else about it I hate — the lack of easy customization, the interface for writing forgo daily items, the fact that I’m locked into an old version of the script and forum because of the changes, the lack of ease in putting pictures or content from other sites into posts and everything else. I would love to switch to WordPress (as Loki’s page uses (soo much easier and enjoyable to write items and add features), but I lose the forum integration.

Tell me, what should I do?
