Blogging


OSX Full Time

Months ago, I don’t remember exactly when and I wish I had saved my tweet, I announced on twitter that I was going to start using my MacBook Pro full time since my Windows machine bit the dust. Not exactly sure what happened to the machine. I thought it was the SSD drive, but now I’m beginning to think it’s either the motherboard or the cpu since it powers up, but never gets any further than the BIOS screen.

Migrating to Hugo

I recently migrated away from ghost.io to a static website running on S3 utilizing gohugo.io. I ran into a few issues here and there, but it was a matter of figuring out go templating and getting everything re-organized. I believe I have all the appropriate redirects in place and I’ve moved over some disqus discussions. I wanted to kill off the last monthly $5.05 bill that I had, S3 should prove considerably cheaper, but I won’t know until I get the first bill.

Working remote

Late 2012, I was laid off from a 12 year job which turned out to be an inconvenient blessing in disguise. I rushed to get my resume out there and I fielded a bunch of opportunities. I was rather surprised that some of them were for remote work. I had never worked remotely before, so I didn’t know if it was going to be a good fit for me at all.

Dusting off the dust

After thinking about my blog for a month and trying to make a decision of what I was going to do, I reviewed google analytics and realized that: I haven’t been blogging that much. My most popular posts were minecraft / bukkit server setup and the railo setup guide. One of the issues of why I haven’t been blogging is that ever since I joined Wrecking Ball Media, I’ve just been super busy.
