2019

September

7th

  • Backfilled the changelog some more. Entries mentioned new posts now link to said posts

  • Swapped the (supposedly placeholder) return symbol (U+23CE) being used as a back button for a circled heavy white rightwards arrow (U+27B2). I couldn’t find a leftwards version so I just rotated it using some CSS

  • Updated some links to be relative, such as the CHANGELOG on the front page which was a link to the live version up until now. Much nicer for working locally.

1st

  • Realised I had broken all of the links when porting to Jekyll! Links like /blog/lore-tabs now looked like blog/2018-02-28-lore-tabs. This wouldn’t be such a big deal but I’ve linked to some posts and I know that searching arch linux on intel nuc on Google brings up my post in 3rd place. Hopefully it’s useful for some people, despite possibly being a little out of date. It’s a handy Arch guide in general I think, since I use it myself. I should write more in depth explainers sometime.

August

29th

  • Switched the primary repo for this site from Github to Gitlab

  • Filled out the majority of the changes for 2019.

  • Added this changelog to track all the different variations of my site over time (will fill it out later)

  • Moved to Jekyll. I wanted to try Asciidoc and Hugo puts some limitations on Asciidoc rendering.

    • I also removed all of the list type pages in favour of having everything the front page. Still not sure how I feel about it so it might change some more in the future!

    • Fixed some small typos on posts while porting them from markdown to asciidoc. Everything starts at v1.0 with those amended updated to v1.1

19th

  • Wrote a post about turning 25. It was mainly just a tangent about what I’d like to do with this site going forward. »

6th

  • Added an MIT License. All of my stuff already carries an MIT license anyway.

July

29th

  • Wrote a post about extracting credentials from Jenkins »

  • Removed pagination from the blog list page

20th

  • Added foresty.io configuration again. It wouldn’t survive very long.

  • Added a post about fixing an issue with upgrading from WSL v1 to v2. I remember drinking a bit when I finally solved this probably so I drunkly wrote this post too :) »

May

21st

  • Revamped everything to follow a dark theme while still aiming to be readable. It was inspired by a website I was browsing on an iPhone 6S Plus set to greyscale mode!

  • All of the CSS was entirely from scratch whereas I had been using CSS frameworks up until now.

March

21st

  • Added a post thinking about the future of emergency services. This would have been shortly after I had been admitted to hospital, if not the same day. »

18th

  • Uploaded my resume as a static asset for easy linking. Not particular relevant to the content of the site.

February

22nd

  • Uploaded some images from a work related incident. Looking back, I probably shouldn’t have but there’s nothing particular useful or secret in there anyway.

10th

  • Uploaded vsreport.html which was a security review of sorts for a videogame I was playing. I had churned it out like an entire year prior but never hosted it anywhere. I think I was talking to someone about it and wanted to send them a link.

7th

  • Tried out forestry.io for the first time and quickly discarded it. It’s a cool project but I don’t have much use for it myself.

3rd

  • Wrote my first review in like 2 years. It wasn’t a review at all, it was more just me gushing about Battle Angel Alita before the film adaption released. I never did go back and write an actual review…​ »

  • Added support for utteranc.es, a neat little comment section powered by Github.

  • Revamed the site to move from tailwind.css to spectre.css

  • Some of the layout changed as a result such as adding opengraph metatags and generally going for a more minimalist approach.
