The upgrade is painless enough. I’ve been working on the back end of the site and a new problem raised its head in the form of Meetup, which has more or less made it impossible to use.
I’m thinking this is a good thing in the long haul, but in the short term, it is creating a headache and is more than a little distressing. I’ve been thinking for awhile about the firewall between my martial arts me and Darwin Atheist me, and it is time to merge the two.
Some other weird stuff going on in the background that I will get to as time permits. Lately I’ve been involved on some of the Meetup boards about where to go and what to do, which doesn’t help you much, I do understand.
It isn’t that I haven’t been writing, trust me, it’s just that what I have been writing hasn’t been the general news thing, which some of you are signing on for.
One of the the good things about being the only Gavin Impett is I’m not so hard to find, should someone want to find me. As a fairly private person, it is always something of a shock when something I write actually gets back to me, by someone who read it.
In the world of Martial arts and JKD land in particular, this can be something of a problem , but in the words of the prophet, sometimes you just have to say fuck it.
And that is where I am at with the current situation with my little in the park group. They are happy to support me and endure the type of stupidity meetup is heaping on them, so be it.
I’m going to a different writing format, which is a bit more suitable to this sort of thing. And I may even put google ads back on my site. We shall see.
