Site rebuild

May 17, 2016 - 1 minute read - Comments

After spending a long while considering the fact that I spent more time doing upgrades to my website management software than actually making updates to the site, I’ve decided to switch platforms and use a static site generator. After trying a few, and feeling like I’m bashing my head against a wall getting them to run, I’ve settled on Hugo. Hugo is downloadable as a single executable file instead of a bewildering array of Python/Ruby/JavaScript packages and it just runs. I like it. Maybe it’s not perfect but it’s good enough for me.

Considering the topic of preserving all of the old data from my blog… I’ve pulled the data archive but looking over it, it’s largely fluff… some of the posts don’t even have anything resembling content. Just a comment as the title and nothing of substance. The point here is to keep useful data so I’ll be going through the posts and re-posting those that are worth it.
