In November of 2004 I bought the domain http://frank-mitchell.com. Then some stuff happened.
In January of this year (2018) I resolved to start blogging on this site, for reals this time. In October of this year (2018) we learned that G+ would soon be no more. And today I finally use this site for its original purpose. Or at least that’s the plan.
The blog you’re reading now is all static pages generated by Hugo. I’d considered Jekyll but people kept telling me “Hugo is fast”. That’s kinda all they said really. After some research I found out it’s modeled after Jekyll. And it’s a single compiled executable written in Go, not interpreted Ruby code. (Except I read and write Ruby, and don’t know Go. So, theoretically at least, if Jekyll doesn’t do what I want I can patch it.)
In the next few days I’ll back-fill interesting posts from other sites, play around with themes and configuration a bit, and get an idea of whether I’m going to stick with Hugo or try something else.
Beyond the blog, I hope to add or revive some of the projects I’ve been talking about for a while but never really working on. I’ll keep the old site’s contents around for a while, if anyone cares.
If anyone has any genuine questions or constructive comments, e-mail me at this site. (Speak, friend, and enter.)
