So I am testing out Mobirise, a drag-and-drop app that creates web pages and such. I had a site I had been working on when the upgrade to version 4 from 3.12 I was using happened and it erased all my work. Over three months of pain-staking, trial and error, tedious work.
Needless to say, I was not happy. Methods to get the app to read my project file (to no avail) were;
- Deleting version 4 then downloading and installing version 3.12
- Deleting version 4 or 3.12 and installing version 2
- Importing project.mobirise file
So alas, I have to start over. Luckily I have a uploaded index page, inside templates to child pages and contact form page all saved for reference.
They should probably work that bug out and patch it immediately over at Mobirise.
It is long overdue, I have also done it three times or so, but now is the final time. six03 studios, any web development or graphic design/branding is now retired. I will keep maintaining the three sites I maintain, but as for new work, unless it presents itself, I am not taking any more on.
It has been 15 years of up and downs, but it has provided more good then not for me and I am grateful to clients, collaborators, and everyone I have come across in those 15 years of work. It has been very quiet of late and with a job and parenting duties, I just don’t have anything left in the tank when I have free time. Which is spent better with my kids.
I’ve spent the better half of a quarter century around web development and will dabble on the side and with my current employer, complete my Code School, Codecademy, online learning courses to stay updated, but taking on new projects is just not in the cards. So with that…
