The WordPress “Classic Block” window pop-up, and other things I don’t understand

For a few months now, when I open up WordPress to start writing about Super Bowl commercials, music, or even hilarious satire, I get this pop-up announcing a new way of putting a post together.

There are two problems with this…

  1. This new style of post is no longer new. They’ve had the “block editor” system for many months.
  2. I reached out to WordPress to find out how to bypass this pop-up, and here was their response.

This feature can not be removed as it is a way to introduce starters to the block editor as part of getting started with a new blog.

How’s that for a solution? WordPress people, if you’re reading this… please make this pop-up go away! I’ve met the classic block. We’ve become very familiar with each other. I do not need to keep being reintroduced to it.

Other things that I can’t figure out at the moment… my A/C duct work is making a ping sound at random times in the day. Based on research, I think it’s an affect called “oil canning” but I do not have the tools to fix it myself. That is, IF it’s “oil canning.” I may have to call the A/C folks to have them come take a look because just like the WordPress pop-up, it needs to go away.

Lastly, I can barely remember a day in Nashville that was above 50 degrees. We are expecting snow today, which will be fun. But come on, man! I miss the days of old when I could go outside with less than 19 layers of clothes on. Plus, I have a bike I’m dying to ride! I know it will warm up, it seems to warm up every spring, but for some reason this winter has lasted 539 days.
