Hello World! (again...)

Read a little bit more about what I am going to be writing about

March 18, 2021

After not so brief hiatus in (blog) writing, I am back on the saddle.

It's been on my to-do list for years now to create a new site. I've collected a huge pile of notes with ideas, screenshots, links to sites with interesting ideas to explore, and so on. I never did anything with them because there was never really a purpose behind committing to such an effort, and because ... you know, life.

What changed now? There is a side project brewing for several years now, since late 2015 perhaps, which I finally decided to push to completion. Unlike my other projects, this one will require some deeper conversations and explanations, and ... well, more writing.

In addition, there really have been a lot of interesting topics to explore over the years. Mostly about software development, but not limited to that -- as there is a more to this world other than work (at least that's what I've been told, I haven't verified it myself yet).

I'll share updates about my projects. Or at least I'll try to push the occasional post so that people will not think that I am dead.

From the archives: #opensource is hard 💀☠️

Are you dead?

The had this idea to make it only using late 90s HTML, with no CSS and Javascript, just plain old prehistoric HTML. While I like that very much, it will not be a fun website. I went with my trusty khaki color instead, and again with almost no Javascript. You might ask then "How is that fun?" -- well, if you even wondered what this site would be like in that bare-bone HTML look, click on the logo, and you will be to see it.

I am drawn more and more to using old-school HTML as I fiddle with my new website. No #css, no #javascript, just prehistoric late-90s HTML.

But man, this Times New Roman is butt-ugly... =)

Old-school HTML

This site is made with Couscous with only a few small added scripts to help with the generation. Everything has been really easy and fun, I am amazed how quickly I managed to get all of this going.
