Fair Enough, or Goodbye Aldebran

Today is a sad day as one of my favorite blogs has gone away. Stefan Poag has officially closed aldeboran. He left this message on his blog:
Blogger has just been too frustrating to continue to work with because of the constant bugs and spambot invasions. I'm moving my worthless words of wisdom to elsewhere on the web. For those who have enjoyed the blog, you can always catch up with me via email or google+ if you do that. I seldom participate on google+ other than to post updates in the campaign updates for an online campaign I participate in, but I usually stop in most week days to see what is going on and chuckle at the funny pictures of cats.
Over the last bit aldebran has been updated at a slower rate than I would have liked, but when you have someone who is so enjoyable to read it's perfectly okay to wait. Aldebran was a bright spot out there and I'm sorry to see it go.

  1. I am unfamiliar with the blog, or with Stefan's work, but your words make me wish it were otherwise.

    1. It was one of those wild places where you never knew what you were going to find but it was almost always worth the visit.

  2. I am sorry to see it go as well, even if I have found less and less there that has interested me of late.

    But seriously I have never run into the bugs people talk about and spammers are easily taken care off.

    1. The only bugs I've experienced have been the blog reader not working and occasionally having posts disappear - which can be incredibly frustrating.

  3. Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo...

    I loved the art and enjoyed a lot of the other posts. He still has a Wordpress site, http://stefanpoag.wordpress.com/ which hasn't been updated lately but gives a sense of how awesome Aldeboran was.
