Blog Upgrade

I'm an engineer, and I'm an Emacs nut, so yes: I tinker a lot.

My latest tinkering was to move my Nikola- and Emacs-based blog out of GitHub, when I abandoned that service entirely, and moved all my code to GitLab.

My reasons for moving are pretty straightforward: I think the "AI" hype is bullshit, and I won't have anything to do with it. I certainly don't want Micro$oft training their "AI" LLMs on my code. Fuck our robot overlords. They can meet me in the street and we can fight it out.

GitLab also has "AI" features, but nothing like GitHub. What's more, I can host my own GitLab and eschew their "AI" fuckstickery, entirely. Can't do that with GitHub, so it was an easy calculus to perform.

I did try to use GitLab Pages, which is really part of GitLab CI, which is to say, "Pipelines".

Overkill, yo. Too much configuration-over-convention for my taste. I don't like Python Django, either, for the same reason. If I'm doing web work, gimme Flask any day of the week.

Anyhow, while I was moving my blog, I thought I'd give it a new look. No more white background, and no more left-aligned container div.

Still not much here on this pathetic blog, but maybe now that I can write and easily deploy to my own host, I'll actually blog a little more.

I might even write about something besides Emacs!

Ya never know…
