Other Views: Month Year

This is my blog where I update occasionally about why I haven’t been updating the site on a regular basis.

May Update Matthew Tunstall |
It has been a while since I last posted anything on here. Without quite knowing where to start I think it’s best to review my aims for 2023 given that it’s almost halfway though the year. Gereral Read More Books - It’s not going well at this point. I’ve made it to the halfway point of “The Three Body Problem”. I’m enjoying it but I’ve just not been picking it up on a regular enough basis.
Aims For 2023 Matthew Tunstall |
General Read More Books - I have a pile of books to get through. Just started reading “The Three Body Problem” by Cixin Liu. Lose Weight - Will be easier once the Christmas chocolate is gone. Eat a more balanced diet - More salad and vegetables with meals. Projects Build a new PC - I already have my storage drives purchased. Just need to decide on the other bits. Learn Vim - This will be an ongoing project.
2022 Review Matthew Tunstall |
2022 was a busy year for me. We are already well into 2023 and only now do I have time to reflect on what has happened. Timeline January/February/March 2022 - I was enrolled on a work related course and was busy with assignments in the evenings. I passed the course but it’s been a long time since I’ve written such a long assignment. June 2022 - I was successful in gaining a promotion at work.
Going Live Matthew Tunstall |
It has taken far too long but the new look DeltaNova is now here. History Back in January 2021, I made the decision to move away from WordPress. This was the start of a long process of exporting the data from the WordPress database into static files. The static files were in ReStructured Text format and I move the site over to Sphinx. Until now this is what the site was being built with.
Theme Development Matthew Tunstall |
I am tying my best to get the site theme into a state where I will be happy to make it live. It doesn’t need to be perfect but I want to finalise my structure a bit more first. The blog side of things seems to be ok. I want to work on the archive side and viewing old posts a little bit more. It’s functional enough for now. I want to get the longer form Article/Reseach layouts sorted next.
February Update Matthew Tunstall |
It has been a while since the last site update. There are a few reasons for this. Last year I started working on a plan to switch the site over from Sphinx and Restructured Text to Hugo and Markdown. I made a good bit of progress with this and the new design was coming along nicely. Work and other commitments then proceeded to take up my time. Things have calmed down a little and I hope to have a little more time available to work on the site.
