Occasional updates on what I’m thinking about and working on

As I’ve transitioned off all social media (except for LinkedIn, I guess, but I can’t imagine hanging out there), my goal is for this to provide general updates on a longer time scale.

July 2023

My big personal project of the past month has been getting this version of the website up and my notes integrated. Because I had some specific ideas about what I wanted to happen with backlinks, I switched the site generator from Hugo to Jekyll, and had to learn a tiny bit of Ruby to make that work, which is more Ruby than I knew before. Also, it was my touching CSS for the first time in many years. It’s gotten impressively easier.

My notetaking system has been my longer-term project, and I’m happy with how it’s working for me, so it feels gratifying to be able to work with the garage door open like this.
