So I doubt I was the only one who got hit by this issue. Basically everything was fine in cPanel land until one day I was randomly getting logged out of cPanel (sometimes immediately after I’d logged in, other times after a few minutes). When I did manage to log in the cPanel interface appeared broken with missing images and occasionally missing stylesheets. In some cases I’d be blocked from even loading the login page. It wasn’t an isolated incident either as this problem cropped up on different hosting services.
Understandably frustrating when you rely on cPanel to configure your hosting.
You’re not a real website designer or developer until you learn to hate GoDaddy. I joke but GoDaddy doesn’t have the rosiest of reputations among seasoned designers & developers. Recent news of GoDaddy acquiring ManageWP (a popular service to manage multiple WordPress websites) has kicked up #WPdrama dust and once again stirred the GoDaddy hate.
Designmodo has a quick overview of what to expect in Bootstrap 4. My initial thoughts:
- Moving from Less to Sass. Crap, now I gotta learn Sass and set up my development environment to support it.
- Grid System based on ems instead of pixels. Nice.
- Dropped support for IE8. OK, whatever…
- Dropped Glyphicons. Uh… please announce a replacement.
- Optional Flexbox. Yesssssss…
- Cards as a new component. Nice.
My biggest gripe is easily having to switch to Sass. Ah well, I’ll live.
In late 2014 I participated in the BSB International Marathon organized by the Brunei Athletics Association. How did I do? I’m glad you asked 🙂 I placed 33rd out of the 127 runners in my category and covered 5km in 32 minutes 28 seconds, a personal best.
Despite the issues that plagued the marathon, I think a hearty “Congratulations” is in order to the Brunei Athletics Association. I’m sure they will take the lessons learned to heart and do even better next time. That said, there are a few website matters we can scrutinize and draw reminders from.
