Hello world! June 12, 2017

Hello there! I'm David, also known as __init__ or TheInitializer. This is my corner of the internet where I'll be writing stuff, I guess.

I made this blog in about 1 hour with Python and Django (really cool), then spent about 3 days trying to get it set up on OpenShift. OpenShift is frustrating. D:

I made the comment system myself, and it's very simple - I didn't want to use JavaScript - but if it becomes a problem (e.g. spam), I'll add more security stuff to it.

If you have any feedback on the styling of this site, feel free to leave a comment below!

I made this as kind of a "welcome to my blog" type thing, so I'll list a few things about myself here, because I don't really know what else to write.

About this blog

I made this from scratch. Here are the things I used:

I guess that's it? This is 300 words now so I guess this is enough. If you want me to add any more, leave a comment :P

"Xamarin (writing a super cool Android app!)" — ohh, when you've made some progress on this, it'd be fun to read a blog post on this!

Well, hrmph, lol http://xn--cr8h.xn--nj8hz0a.ws/stems/ Anyways, why are posts listed from oldest (top) to newest (bottom) on the home page? It definitely makes it more difficult to see when a new post is made. (I actually go for the extreme opposite on my blog – I present the most recent blog post on the very front page..!)

fl: Oh, oops. I keep on meaning to do that. Will do it later.

fl: Fixed it - turns out it was a really easy fix :P - https://github.com/TheInitializer/blog/commit/4f9f6095b08bb776534165a26b9b15a5dc1d1569#diff-5296a9bd1023370b6d4776c0d2dfd1dc

Nice scratch pun. Also anyone can use any username it seems

I'm a bit fed up with the website address :/ But anyway, didn't know you had a blog! I assume __init__ is your favorite part of Python, or did you just choose that username because __init__ represents Python the most?

oh, this is neat :P I found it via the Scratch ATs, anyone else?

kenny2init: I chose it because it wasn't taken and it represented Python :P

"__Init__": I hope it won't become a problem - if it does I'll change it.

"__Init__": Also, the pun wasn't intended :P

kenny2init: It's the punycode for 👽.🔝🍰.ws - try typing that into your browser instead and it'll bring you here! :P
