I haven’t posted anything for ages. Partially because of preoccupation and partially because I kind of lost motivation. Quite a lot has happened since my last post, and all of these things have affected both my life and my desire/ability to write something in one or another way. Disturbances at work, pandemics, changes in personal life and, finally, last year, war came to the doorstep of my home, ruining everything.

A few weeks ago, I tried to gather myself and finally get my hands dirty in an attempt to make this site look the way I wanted it. Refreshing HTML/CSS skills took some time, so did digging through the Hugo documentation, as well as trials and errors. It turned out that Hugo is indeed a great tool: powerful, flexible and at the same time relatively easy to deal with. There is a learning curve, but it is not as steep as it looks at first sight. It was fun, and I do not regret a single second spent on it.

And here we go. While not perfect and probably not optimal here and there, the site is good enough, and I’m quite happy with the result. Still need to migrate old posts, though, and maybe make the whole site multilingual.

Let’s hope that now I will return to more or less regular writing.

Bye-bye, nginx, bye-bye, WordPress

As it is said, the subject says it all. I replaced nginx with caddy and instead of WordPress took HUGO. Both are more than enough for my needs. Moreover, it is a bit more convenient now.

All that is left is to tweak the theme or maybe even create my own.

For a long time I have been thinking about the possibility of starting a blog. Many times I have been asking myself “For what?”, and then answering — for convenience. It is convenient to keep my thoughts, publish various ideas and share experience… And now, after a thorough and lengthy process of choosing a platform the blog has been created.

Here I will post about everything that is somehow related to my interests: programming, databases, opensource, GIS… Perhaps I also will go beyond these topics. Anyway, after a few posts it will be more clear how and where it goes.
