Farewell, Dead Reckoning
Dead Reckoning is now Zero to One-Eighty. The time had come. On the weekend I decided to overhaul my site (for probably the fifth time), downloaded the WordPress 2.5 release candidate (when I heard that Zeldman and Co. did the interface redesign I had to try it out), and got to work.
The more I thought about the URL design of the site, and the various naming decisions I’d made, the more I realised that subtracting from the site was the best solution. I haven’t updated my photos in a while, or my projects list (though I’ve been working on plenty of stuff), and links pages have gone the way of the dodo. In any case, I was never really satisfied with the subsections of the site having their own identity, “Dead Reckoning,” “Longitudes” and so on. Now the blog’s home page is the site’s home page, and the rest is pretty simple.
I’ll probably build it up a bit in the coming weeks. I’ve got redirects in place for the blog but please note that the feed URL has changed. That’s it for now. The old DR was a lot of fun, and I think I’m going to miss the curves…
Update: see the Changes page for additional information.
Update (Dec. 2016): feeling compelled to point out that “Zero to One-Eighty” is far from a simple name 😒.
