Back From the Dead
It’s been quite a while since you’ve heard from me, mostly due to a combination of laziness, misconfigured blog settings, and general burnout. Seems like this is a common trend with dev blogging, so kudos to those who keep an active blog.
A whole lot has happened in the past couple years.
(I won’t mention that, uhm, 2020 thing)
Anyway, how about some quick updates? I removed a lot of friction in the process to publish blog posts. My previous setup involved manually building the
hugo project and then
rsync‘ing the output to a remote server. Now I’m using DigitalOcean’s free static hosting that autodeploys off Github, super neat. Hopefully this brings back my motivation to write more. I also got lazy and didn’t treat my blog as a real
git project. I spent some time tidying up my project files so things should be in order now.
- Alacritty as my terminal
- rg and fd for

- Fork for my git client
- Charles Proxy for network sniffing
- Firefox for web browsing
- 1Password for password management
- Bought a condo
- Built an AMD gaming PC
- Got a new 2020 Macbook Pro (opted to skip the M1 for now)
- Swift is still amazing
