First post using Blogger mobile app

Ok. Let's give this a try.

My blog site has migrated twice this time. It started from own virtual host, moves to openshift, now it's on Blogger platform. Though it's owned(?) by Google, it's quite different from other Google apps on the SLA, I've read somewhere, or maybe I'm wrong.

Originally, this site is on Wordpress, Wordpress is really good open source framework and lots of features and all that, but it's always a subject for hacking. It got defaced couple of times, even without sensitive information, it's time consuming putting it back together and contacting the host vendor on what happened and what are the precautions to prevent this. But that goes on, maybe three or four times, so I gotta move on. 

Then openshift, this one is good, free PHP and limited files hosted, that's all I needed. But Wordpress mobile app doesn't play nice with it. It requires SSL to your host so the mobile app can login to wp-admin, the basic plan uses your openshift URL to connect via https. I plan to upgrade plan, but they do not accept payment from outside Europe and U.S., at least the time when I tried. I needed to write down my thoughts somehow, and make it ready for publishing, revising, attaching photos, etc. But I also wanted to do it on mobile, yeah, compose a post on my phone, why not? And continue updating it on desktop when I can. So what I wanted to do with my blog is continuity. I think that's all I wanted to write in this post. If I need to resume on desktop, I could. Later, or finish it here, right here, right now. 

Up for blogger on this one. 

Whichever platform you transfer to, you have fix paths for images, and internal URL references.

My 'B' - Bickerton 1707

I think it's bang for the buck, almost the same specs as Tern P24h, at almost half the price.

Suits, season 1. Yeah, and now started to think - to fixie, or not to fixie?

The human spirit is more powerful than any drug

The human spirit is more powerful than any drug, and that is what needs to be nourished with work, play, friendship and family. These are the things that matter.

Be grateful for what you have

Be grateful for what you have and what was given to you. Do not find the reason how you got it, similar to how it was given to you.

Working with requests tests and ajax request

Been going back and forth, disabling, enabling use_transactional_fixtures, switching to truncation and transaction.

Finally, made a working version
