Another vacation project finished: I gave my old languishing tech blog a complete redo. Happy with the end result: I did a blogged a small change log:

Mostly been digging through the old Jekyll blog today. I've let it grow stale these past years. Ended up assessing, pruning and supplanting code, functionality, design,...

Moved on from to . The latter having a more mature ecosystem, larger community and a lower learning curve.

If you want to try your hand at functional programming for concurrent/distributed computing, is an elegant solution to consider.

Also, LiveView in is some of the most impressive stuff I've seen in a framework in a long time. Websockets and pubsub made easy.

Here's video of a quick Twitter clone in 15 minutes.

Taking for a test drive this week. So far, I identify myself more with Buzz and less with Woody.

Spend an hour looking at GDPR consent plugins for WordPress. Settled for a plugin that does most of the heavy lifting for me. After 2 years, I feel that these explicit consent forms are a losing proposition as the biggest offenders moved on to advanced fingerprinting techniques anyway.

"Crawled - Currently not indexed". The present bane of my existence as far as my blog and SEO is concerned. Google Search is this magic box that may or may not reference your content.
