WordPress is great if you have a lot of dynamic content. I created and manage a WP site for our high school bands, we have regular updates made by non-IT people. I easily taught a few people, including the band director, how to create posts (dynamic content), and taught the booster president how to update static pages. A lot of providers have one-click installers for WP, and if not? You know LAMP so you'll not find it a challenge.
WP automatically provides a mobile interface. I can't say it's the best, but it is certainly functional and it cost me no time. I expect that it's possible to customize that, but it hasn't been a priority so I have not investigated.
Cons? Learning curve and hidden costs. The basics are very simple, but things ramp up. None of this should be difficult to an experienced web developer, but you will eventually have numerous plugins, all with differing interfaces and quality. Knowing LAMP makes things easier (I didn't) but you'll spend more time than you expect learning how the components work. Again, not difficult (IMO) but time consuming.
WP is popular so it gets hacked. I have plugins for: login security, web page security, reducing comment spam, backup-n-restore, plus various miscellaneous things. A lot of plugins are free, but the quality varies dramatically, as does the documentation.
Hidden costs? My provider is about $110 USD/year, including 1 domain, infinite sub-domains, unlimited storage and bandwidth -- this is my known (fixed) cost. WP is free and you can get a free plugin for virtually anything you need.
However ... quality varies. Free themes have issues (ya get what ya pay for), so I finally invested in a commercial theme (which I use on multiple sites). The hassle it saved me and the flexibility it provides are worth the money. I also purchased a good backup/restore system as the free ones tend to be complicated. The one I bought requires some technical knowledge (how to create a MySQL database) and how to use an FTP client. Again, money well spent -- although I use these products on multiple sites so I get more bang for my buck.
Note that WP sites are NOT my day job. I'm supporting a couple of groups and doing it for myself, so it's all off-hours work.
You can install WP locally and play with it. I suggest you do that before you commit yourself. WP has great value but it's definitely not the right solution for all problems.
Is it me or the people after the Netflix series Daredevil is making a terrific job?
I've just seen the end of the season 2 and I think it is a wonderful tribute to the best comics for this hero.
SEASON 1 SPOILERS AHEAD
Great portrait for Kingpin.
Great introduction to the hand by showing us Nobu dressed as the sect dresses their ninjas.
Powerful characters (Madam Gao, Nelson, Page, Stick).
Melvin Potter as The Gladiator (which is never shown as the villain).
SEASON 2 SPOILERS AHEAD
Wonderful The Punisher character.
Again Nobu and the Hand which now it is fully shown.
Elektra, who is what the comic depicted.
Well to be fair Breaking Bad started off very well, but got progressively worse and maybe people gave those votes when it was still good. I don't see many people give fair marks to any series. Let's take Supernatural as an example. It's very popular and the story was very good to about the end of season 6/7. It has 8.6 on IMDB and the first few seasons are really good, you have monster of the week format and a bit of story behind it, then the "main" story picks up, with a few funny episodes to ease the tension. All in all well connected and even though it's not completely fresh, it's very entertaining. But if you would judge Supernatural by what it is now... it doesn't even go beyond 5 for me. They just rehash everything they did in earlier seasons. How do you mark it then? By it's previous success or by the bad series it has become?
Saying that, I'm not sure how the Walking Dead got 8.6.
Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - I'd just like a chance to prove that money can't make me happy. Me, all the time

Both of these were caught by the automated spam detector as "possibly dodgy post" and required human intervention to accept them.
And I had to accept them both so that you wouldn't get a swift kick as a spammer, and then manually delete one afterwards!
I know it's annoying when it doesn;t appear, but give it a little time rather than reposting immediately, please?
