Local WP is nice, but no.

I just figured why you give me so much trouble.

Playing with an instance of WordPress on my computer by way of Local and I’m at a loss. What’s that big friendly-looking thing with the unobtrusive buttons? Where are the 150 things I need to remember for a single post?

Well, they’re probably in the part where I’d need to make sure everything is up to date. With the static site once it’s up I don’t have to care about it any more.

My brain hurts.

I felt like Fezzik.

Well, I haven’t fought one person for so long. I’ve been specialised in groups, battling gangs for local charities, that kind of thing.

Only — you know. Smaller. Not so intimidating.

You use different moves when you’re fighting half a dozen people, than when you only have to be worried about one

Nah, I’ll stick with my overcomplicated site workflow for now.
