Site Maintenance Update

Update – 11/14/2020

Unfortunately, I’m temporarily postponing the completion of the site maintenance/deletion of pages. Since starting on the project, some other, personal things have arose and I’m going to be busy with important projects over the next week or so. (I’m going to try to publish out my thoughts on Big Sur in the next day, but that will likely be the end of my involvement with the website for the next week.)

You may notice the normal homepage/index for the older section of my personal website is gone and has been replaced by an auto-redirect page. Since many of the images and assets serving the old section are now missing and many pages will be deleted, the Internet Archive version is probably best anyways.

Unfortunately, some of the older entries and pages on my blog (this site) contain images and other assets on the older section of the website, which means they may go missing. I will be going around and checking for missing images and other assets and updating them or removing them. (I also noticed that some images and assets from some external sources are missing, as well.) There should be minimal affect on newer articles and pages, and all text/content should still be available.

Over the next couple days, I will be deleting pages in the older (static HTML) part of my website. I will be placing redirect pages in their places, which will give you the option to either visit the content here on the WordPress-powered site (if the content has been moved over) or view the archived version on the Wayback Machine.

I will also be slowly working my way through assets (images, audio files, PDFs, etc.) stored here. Files not being used by anything currently will be deleted, and some files may be compressed or resized.

This will be done to conserve storage space for additional future content, and make the site as economical as possible to operate. Furthermore, compressing and/or resizing assets like images or audio files may make them load quicker and use less data – which will be especially important for mobile users.

Operations here on the WordPress-powered site should not be impacted, especially for newer content and posts where all assets are stored within the WordPress installation and not on the static part.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.
