All About the Move to Hugo

I finally got done, moving the blog from Nikola to Hugo today. I already wrote about why I did it. These are a few more thoughts about what went into the endeavour; and some colophonesque details. One, really small hope, is that it will help me learn Go. The DevOps world that I now seek to enter, speaks Go. I also, now run two Go programs that are indispensible to me, Hugo and Miniflux....

Begin Again

Moved over from Nikola, to Hugo today. In two minds about what to do with all the old posts. Do I just shed them all, like I’ve done in the past? Or work to move them over?

The combination of cold capsule ingestion, followed by its smothering by food an hour later, has fixed the burps for me!...

10

It’s way past our anniversary on the 10th of September. But that day was filled with togetherness. And the days before and after were filled with all sorts of madness, both personal and professional. Dear Abby, it’s been a decade. And it’s flown by us like a quarrel of sparrows. Here now, and vanished in the next instant. And yet when I look back on it, we’ve been through so much....
