I am going to be mostly offline until May 30th, so I probably won’t have any new posts until June.
The redesign is mostly finished. There are still a few things I want to fix, but that will have to wait for now. The good news is the site looks awesome on mobile and the new search engine is much better. It not only searches posts, but your comments as well. Results are not returned in date order, but weighed for relevancy. If you have a WordPress site, look into Relevanssi. Their free version is excellent.
When you do a blog redesign, you stumble upon older posts. Some that are still good and others that aren’t. As tempted as I am to remove some of the stinkers, I don’t. A blog is place where I can throw up an idea that was on my mind that day. It doesn’t mean that I’ll keep that opinion. I often don’t.

The Critical MAS blog now has 1,898 posts and 7,825 comments. It has 487,633 words (not counting this post). Finding the good posts can be difficult for even me. While I am away, I’ll be thinking about better ways to highlight the better posts. The BEST OF section above is OK, but not ideal. Until then, here are 10 random posts I still like.
