I killed this blog for a while today. I've been stressing over it so I shut it down to see how it felt. I wrote two lines of PHP code and stuck them up in the header of the oldmanjim.com index.php file.
"OldManJim is done." was presented to a blank screen, and then the site simply stopped. Dead to the world.
I left it up there for a few hours this morning, and access to all 2,041 posts across more than five years, thousands of images, hundreds of videos, and tools that have been used millions of times, was gone.
Here's what it looked like:
OldManJim is done.
I've since commented out that kill switch, but it is now less than a minute away.
