Working, always working

Well, it’s complicated. An ecard website always has people’s email addresses in its database, so I’m always concerned about security.

The other thing is that over the years Wrongcards became a very, very large web-application. So much so that maintaining it became very time-consuming and tiresome.

Complicated web applications are not good, particularly when most of the time there is only one person keeping an eye on them.

I’ve known for a long time that, come November, I’d be refocusing my energies on creating cards again, but the thought of dealing with Wrongcards’ antiquated back-end application gave me the screaming heebiejeebies.

Then one day last month, out of the blue, I had an idea - a guaranteed way to make the entire website much more secure, and simpler - and faster! - and ludicrously inexpensive to maintain. It really was a very good idea. I have those occasionally.

What does this all this mean? Well, nothing for you, probably, but a great deal for me. Psychologically, making Wrongcards easy to manage means a great deal to me. But importantly, it will free up my time and I can get back to writing books and creating cards and going for walks!

I know this isn’t a very informative post but it’s really just to reassure people that I’m still here, and that Wrongcards - after nine years of operation - will be relaunching in November ‘17 in a big way.

So here’s to that.
