Hello and Welcome. Thanks for visiting.

“The mess is shifting.”

I’ve begun giving halls.md some improvements. The old simple html style pages from 14 years ago, are slowly being re-made, using either Bootstrap or WordPress. I’m still experimenting to find a new style.

Halls.md was my first website.
This page tells some of its history.

A few words about popularity.

View ranking information about halls.md in the Majestic Million.
This humble website gets traffic.

I was pleasantly suprised when MajesticSEO.com showed its ranking of the top 1 million websites. Being ranked around 150,000 is an honor. Halls.md gets about half-a-million unique visitors a month.

My popular calculators were small and fast.

MooseMoose
Yes. Simple, fast, and no bullshit.

Dr. HallsDr. Halls
Er, ya. But they didn’t fit well on smartphones.

MooseMoose
Is that fixed yet?

Dr. HallsDr. Halls
Barely. I only learned how to do “responsive” a few months ago. The redesign work is happening too slowly.

MooseMoose
How’s it going?

“See the new look.”

The new Body Mass Index calculator.
It used to have teddy bears, and now it is being Moose-ified.
 
The old style BMI calculator for men is here, and hasn’t been fixed-up yet.


“You should explain
Moose-ification.”

Although I’m a practicing physician, a busy full-time Radiologist, I also have a hobby of software development. Many years ago, I created the original Talking Moose. Then I raised a family and built my medical career. Only recently, in the past few years, my passion for creating software reignited, and the Revival of the Talking Moose project began. I’ve spent insane amounts of money on it. Many hundreds of thousands of dollars, which seems ridiculous.

You’re not insane. Doesn’t everybody waste their life savings on something?

Dr. HallsDr. Halls
You’re not helping! Actually, writing software of triple-A quality, isn’t cheap, and there were a lot of setbacks along the way.

 
 

Like any software product, for instance, 3D games on Steam or the App store top-sellers, it’s going to take some Marketing. If I spend a million dollars on software development and zero dollars on marketing, then it’s doomed to fail. I’m thought to myself: HEY, I have a popular website. I could advertise the new Talking Moose on it.

That’s illegal, or unethical, or against-policy…

Somewhere. Help me understand. People come here for medical information and are exposed to ads, like a sneak attack. And for what? A software that isn’t even finished?

I know I’ll never recover the money I’ve spent on it, because the Moose software will be FREE. Thus, I’m advertising something that is FREE because it’s a wonderful software that people should know about. It makes people happy, every day. It improves their health too, because laughter does that.

Lets get back to Halls.md, re: the Blog.
I’m hiring writers to help me create a bunch of new BLOG posts, on health topics. These blog posts are where most of the gratutitous moose-related silly-ness occurs, during discussions of weight loss, diets, etc. Click on the blog link, for some amusement.

And here below are the rest of my links to my old style web pages, that I haven’t found time to update yet.
