  • Changes

    Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes… Turn and face the strange. After 13 years I recently decided to switch out my webhost. It's not that they were horrible, but I have been wanting to revamp/rethink https://rfquerin.

  • 2020 Git, Github, and VSCode

    Happy New Year! This is really just a post I needed to write because I'm finally incorporating Git and Github into my blogging workflow and this is a test post of sorts.

  • Remember it's December.

    You must have thought I'd never post to this blog again. You were almost correct. Oh so close. Christmas 2019 has passed. But with my lovely daughter's birthday and then New Years Eve still to come, there is plenty of time to make this… hold on… let me check… gulp… third blog post of 2019.

  • Analytics Note

    Just a note to remember because I'm old and forgetful: I like this Kiera theme on the blog, but it's not without it's issues. While the README.md file for the theme conveniently suggests the following line in its sample config.
