Brandon: Email Problems
Apparently emails aren't getting sent from this host.

So, uh, I'll try and fix that one of these days.

Brandon: Jenkins as a CI Server
Why do people use Jenkins? It's a steaming pile of crap that is lacking basic features that every CI system should have.

Jenkins does not have templates, something that would be very useful for a CI system when you have a lot of projects that are built and tested in nearly the same way.

The plugin system is a mess and poorly documented. One plugin may not play nice with another one.

The UI is atrocious and has not been updated in years.

It doesn't use a database to store test results or run results, so seeing metrics of jobs is a royal pain.

I lost the battle for using JetBrains TeamCity product because, aside from templating, there was nothing that TeamCity could do that Jenkins couldn't.

I should have fought harder. There more I use this system the more I wonder how large organizations use it.

I have a feeling that they don't. They pay for a system that doesn't require babysitting all the time.

I will cease ranting now.

Brandon: New Hosting
I'm moving to a new web hosting provider. Things look like they are working well so far, but let me know if you run into any problems.

So I'm going to PAX Prime this year. I'm rather excited about that. I'm hoping to get a lot of swag and stuff.
