Finally Wrote A Hugo Shortcode To Deal With Generating Tables For My Weather Station Data

Friday, Jan 14, 2022
I’ve been working on making myself a short code to deal with translating an unusual csv file into data that’s usable to Gohugo. It was to make my personal weather station’s data available on here. The go templates just are not something that’s super intuitive to me.

Tweaking My CSS And Partials

Friday, Dec 17, 2021
I have been slowly working on tweaking the layout files and CSS for my site here. It’s been fun learning new things and learning how powerful CSS has become.

Caddy Redirects

Tuesday, Apr 27, 2021
I’ve been wanting to remove the dates from my URLs for awhile now. It was easy enough to change the way Hugo generates the files but it was a bit more challenging to get Caddy server to do it. Once I figured it out I had the duh! moment though. I was forgetting a (-) because my bad eyes just weren’t seeing that it was missing but my brain was placing it there.

Funny To See A Page Of Browser Tweaks To Get Rid Of Web Annoyances Have Several Of Them Itself

Sunday, Aug 23, 2020
I was searching to see if there’s a method to disable the stupidly used and unnecessary fade in effect that so many pages seem to use these days. There’s nothing like waiting for the stupid fade ins when things can load pretty much instantly now. This is really noticeable with discourse based sites. Between that and the “infinite scroll” that they use it really makes things so much slower than they need to be.

I Don't Need An Animated Scroll Effect To The Bottom Of Your Page When I Click Support

Wednesday, Mar 25, 2020
I just visited Samsung’s website to find out something about my SSD. They’re website has been shit for as long as I can remember, even back when I had a note 5 phone. When I clicked support to find out just out of pure curiosity whether there are any firmware updates available for it after reading about a bug in a different brand. I don’t doubt there are firmware updates since SSDs basically are controlled by their own mini computer.

I'm Looking Into Alternative editors For Markdown

Tuesday, Mar 17, 2020
I have decided that I want to look into alternatives to Kwrite as an editor for my website stuff. There’s nothing wrong with Kwrite at all. It just does more than I need it to do for these purposes and I thought I’d just try something new because that’s always fun. The only prerequisite that it has to have for me to use it is handle markdown well. That shouldn’t be too hard of a task to do since the markdown is basically just text.

Endless Scroll Can Be Annoying

Tuesday, Feb 25, 2020
We’ve all come across the stupid endless scrolling where when you hit the bottom of the screen it loads more entries. One some of the social media sites it sort of makes sense since that sort of stuff is virtually endless but quit with the auto refresh shit so you lose your place in the middle of reading a post. The real annoying use of this that comes to mind are two types of sites.

Bad Websites

Sunday, Feb 2, 2020
For what ever reason I checked out a local business' website and realized I would just personally skip right past their website if I wee looking for their service for the first time. I don’t need animations and transitions when I am just trying to scroll down and read about your business. Worst thing is the pages or screens or what ever the fuck they call them that keep loading are nothing more than generic marketing.

It's Been Almost A Year Since I Switched From WordPress To Hugo

Sunday, Jan 5, 2020
A little over a year ago I was looking into alternatives to WordPress. Not that there was anything wrong with it, I just wanted to give something different a shot. This is more of a hobby with my ramblings for myself more than anything. I gave a couple of other platforms a try and they worked well enough but then I stumbled onto static site generators It seemed like a good idea to give it a shot since this is only a small hobby for me.

Why Are Restaurant Website Still So Bad?

I may have posted about this before but it certainly still seams to apply to this day. Why are restaurant websites so shitty? What does a fancy animated logo add to the website and what do they gain from having a menu system that only works with java script? Then you also have to just love the stupid PDF file food menu. We do go to this place and I do like it a lot but if I hadn’t already been there the website would have turned me off

Trying Out Hugo

Friday, Jan 25, 2019
I don’t use this all that often anymore. Just too busy with other things right now. I’d used WordPress for years but had to check every so often for updates. I’d been meaning to look into static websites again for convenience and security purposes. I came across Hugo and it seemed like it would do just want I wanted. It’s still easy to create posts and such without running any scripts on the server.

What Is It With Pictures Of Menus On Restaurants’ Websites?

Tuesday, Mar 1, 2011
Well I found yet another website for a local restaurant that is pretty much unusable to me and many others. Usually if we’re planning on going someplace I haven’t been I like to look for them online ahead of time to look at their menu if they have a website. For the place we’re going to be going I thought great I found their website. For one thing it’s slow loading and that’s just annoying.

Another Annoyance

Thursday, Jan 6, 2011
I’ve been noticing recently some websites want my email address. This is nothing new but the trend seems to be a box popping up over the content I was looking for. It dims and disables the rest of the page. Note to the sites that use this. I find this intrusive and will immediately leave your site. I realize most sites are trying to make money but don’t be so fucking intrusive with it.

Website Accessibility

Tuesday, Nov 7, 2006
The website for Burger King has to be one of the worst that I have come across when it comes to accessibility.
