No one would notice if I didn’t post about it, but for that one person in my mind that loved reading codepimp.org, I thought I’d share why the site was removed.
Codepimp was originally something that my friend came up with and I eventually took over from WAY back in the days, and I’m talking about 15 years ago. That was a time before I had a son, a wife, a business and a daughter (ordered chronologically of course). At that time, Codepimp seemed like a fun name, but 15 years of maturity later I realized that it sends a message that I don’t want to be sending from myself. The word pimp defined by webster is bad enough, but it get’s even worse when you move onto the urban dictionary (where I also might be involved in some other definitions NOT BY CHOICE…fyi). Every time I had to direct someone that didn’t know me to that site, I would kind of cringe, and even more so in a professional setting. I’d also like to apologize to anyone that was offended.
Now I’m not saying that I’m going to be the pinnacle of maturity, but some things, especially anything that carries negativity towards women, is a thing that I don’t want to be part of. Again, another identity from another time that was long overdue for a final farewell. I’m also pretty tired of hosting my own wordpress sites and extremely tired of dealing with shitty service from dreamhost.
PS: During the migration I’ve also removed some posts that were full of really bad advice OMFG WHY DIDN’T ANYONE TELL ME I HAD A BOOGER ON MY FACE!!!
