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.

A Few Fixes Matthew Tunstall |
Headings Some of the headings were a little oversized for the body text. Hopefully these are now a better size. I’ve also changed the font-weight back to bold to make them stand out. Sphinx Build I was getting frustrated at the time it was taking Sphinx to build the site. I had been looking around for solutions/alternatives. It was only after digging into the build options and looking back over my Makefile that I found my bottleneck.
Goodbye Matthew Tunstall |
Today is the end of an era. I closed my hosting account with I’ve been hosting sites with them for about 20years!! Earlier this year I moved over to Mythic-Beasts as I could get the same service for half the price. I’d left the account active as the renewal was not until July. Today with a pending invoice for renewal I finally took the decision to close the account.
IRC Move Matthew Tunstall |
I’ll admit that I’ve not been the most regular IRC user over the years but I do log on from time to time. Until this week I had been using the Freenode network as it had some of the OSS channels that could be accessed for support. Events this week has seen a hostile takeover of the network from the volunteer staff that have been running it for years.
April 2021 Update Matthew Tunstall |
Changes It has been a while since I last posted a significant update. If you are returning to the site you will notice the biggest difference, no more WordPress. I finally gave up on WordPress. I was never happy with it since the introduction of the block editor. I had been considering the move to a static site for a while and had experimented with a few different site generators. I settled on Sphinx as it meets my needs and that is what generates the site today.
