Right, blow this, I'm off...

This will be A Fading Tan's last post on Blogger. Basically I've had it. Blogger is shit.

I've been keeping the blog here — and letting enthusiasm whither — for the worst of all possible reasons: a single post had decent SEO standing.

— I think that means a single post was any good.
— Too harsh. A couple of other posts did help people.

Anyhow, I can't be wasting energy on a platform I'm not interested in. I'm moving to a simple weblog generator called Pelican. I will be contributing on GitHub.

A Fading Tan's animus will continue on noumenal.co.uk. In the meantime there's Twitter.

Metaphorically, this is me:

If you're a software developer, then it's you too.

Technology moves forward like a giant wave. There is so much to learn that we must paddle like crazy (or get a tow!) just to get on the wave. Then we must work like crazy to stay on it.

With luck we won't fall off.

[UPDATE: Hmmm. The YouTube Embed doesn't seem to be working. Not sure why they put it there if it's not going to do anything. Anyhow, the video is only short if you've got 2 minutes whilst your build runs.]
