This marks my third(?) migration to a new site format! 🎉
I've recently started learning to use Emacs after leaving the Emacs manual lying around for the better part of a year. Since I've decided to try my hand at some common lisp I figured it would be a good time to start learning, and my goodness I wish I'd started this sooner.
Ever heard of Void Linux? Me neither until a little while ago. My friend had orginally introduced me to Void when I was looking at going back to Arch Linux a few years ago, stating that it was (in many ways) a vastly superior system. I was intrigued, but I ultimately ended up sticking with Arch as I was familiar with it and was unwilling to give up on using the AUR at that point.
I've made a few changes to this website. Well, not really a few changes, more like a complete overhaul. I was getting a bit bored of using Hugo/Markdown and decided to challenge myself to the following:
It's Been a Little While
Every time I have a blog I am always really bad at posting to it consistently. Actually, a lot has changed in recent months so I thought I'd do a little brain dump.
Making a difference
It feels good to actually have a positive impact on something. One of my biggest gripes about working in support is that you are - as a support agent - inevitably the face of disappoinment and/or failure at some point. The job is time and attention demanding, and sometimes you simply have to tell someone that things they want are not possible.
Okay, so I'm slightly reneging on my earlier post by writing about computers again, but trust me when I say this one is as much personal as it is technical.
And Now For Something Completely Different
I've been writing posts on this website for a little while now, mostly relating to my technological exploits and sysadmin misadventures. While this is a big part of my life at the moment, it's not the only thing I do. I'm going to try and write a bit more about non-technology things just to try to encourage myself to focus on other things alongside computers.
As the astute among you may have noticed, this site has undergone some changes over the last couple of days. That's because I've now completely moved away from Wordpress and destroyed my old server in favour of a different provider.
