I have decided to shut down all my projects and start looking for a new host.  I need a break from this place.  Here is my new place:

Only started.  Slowly moving my projects there. 

Trying to learn new editor and reformatting things on the fly.  Editor: major improvement and white background finally.


Been playing around a few days, I think I am getting the hang of things.  The editor is a major improvement.  Gone are the usual complain/bugs.  If I accidentally quit the browser while editing, it saved the copy as draft  and I can go back in without missing a thing!  Wow.  No missing first character or pictures that get deleted when you only meant to delete some text.  I guess when a company is specialized on blog hosting, they tend to do that well enough.  How long do they take to "try" to fix bugs here again?

I have a lot of control on how I can theme my own web page.  Everything is about freedom of my choice/preference.  If I don't like the colouring scheme, fonts etc.  I can change all that as I am the admin of my own site.

Let's say I have not regret the move so far.

Didn't you just post something new?

Totally been feeling this lately as I've been trying to de-"social network" my life (oh crap, I'm doing it again...). Added your RSS feed to my reader!

Totally understand the desire for "freedom", but don't leave us out -- those of us who follow along with your projects would love to keep doing so!  

For instance, you could just start up a project called "stuff I'm doing on my other site" and the toss in a project log with links.  That way, folks here would get notified when you do something new.  Best of both worlds?

(Or just submit to -- we'll take care of the rest...)

Thank _you_ for all the fish!

Working on it all day today.  This is a rather big project.  Slowly converting the 30+ project logs and reorganizing them into a more organized manner.   Can't believe of the stuff I have done.  I feel too old now to pull that off again.

I don't want to know what you do with that if it is NSFW.  :P  Let me know if things are missing as I have done quite a bit copy/paste between different sites, reformatting and scatter-gather the episodic project logs into topic related blogs pages.

I bought a modest house on a lake, so every morning I stare at a mile of water over my morning coffee and wonder what's underneath.  I could buy a sidescan sonar, but where's the fun in that :-)

I found some 60W 40kHz transducers on ebay meant for ultrasonic cleaners, and have been (slowly) experimenting with them.  The cheap 40kHz modules you explored allow easy low-power experiments in air before I scale up.

Thanks again for all your work on this and other projects.  I get that you need to move, now I'll just have to read your stuff somewhere else :-)

Good luck. You (along with Ted Yapo) do the coolest things.

Thanks. I'll still be doing those those things just at a different place with different rules.

A new host, eh? Try out Instructables, it's similar to this, but instead of logs and descriptions and all of that, it's just step-by-step projects. is also pretty good, and it's similar to Hackaday, but more IoT oriented.

All the best, happy hacking, best wishes, and good luck!

  Are you sure? yes | no

K.C. Lee wrote 07/25/2018 at 11:13 point

Definitely not instructable. Can't stand their webpages.

A lot of my project don't necessarily have a list of instructions - they are heavy on theory, formal design, ideas and half the time incomplete projects.  There are times I want to write other than projects. I might move towards blogging instead of project oriented.

So? You're free to do whatever you want. Have a nice break, everyone needs one once in a while.

Cheers, Jan
