Like any tech blogger, I spend almost as much time writing as I do tinkering with the site. + +The most significant difference in this incarnation of the blog is moving back to my old domain. The nickname was cool[^old-domain], but I am not controversial enough to hide my real name. All I write about here are computers, dead musicians, old TV shows, and anime. Therefore: hello, my name is Michał. [d-s.sh](d-s.sh) is now returning 301 redirects to [michal.sapka.me](michal.sapka.me). Come to think of it, this change is possible only because I own both domains and rent the server. I would be at someone else's mercy if I were using an external provider or social media site. +[^old-domain]: It had a nice [three months long run](/2023/new-domain-bsd-and-sayonara-memes/#new-domain). + +I have also changed how the site looks. It's only the first of many iterations that will be visible here soon, but the site already looks different. Nicer? I have no idea. I like it more now. This change was brought to you by adding footnotes[^footnotes] +[^footnotes]: There's a [clash of IDs if there is more than one post on a single page](/2023/footnotes-in-hugo-and-goldmark/#footnotes-in-hugo). + +It's simpler now and nicer to read while not being too brutalistic[^brutalist]. +[^brutalist]: As a Pole I love [brutalist architecture](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brutalist_architecture), but it can be too much. + +The next one is the least impacting now, but it will change the site for the better. Until now, I have been trying to keep an almost daily schedule. It was a nice run, and it allowed me to create content that makes this blog worthy of visiting. But it also hindered the quality. Some people can keep such a schedule while providing insightful posts very often[^ruben], but I am not one of them. The worst offender here is the urge to split a good post into multiple worse ones[^bsd-post]. But more often, the follow-up never materialized. Therefore, I will still post random small posts here, but I will make the bigger ones more compelling. +[^ruben]: [Ruben](https://rubenerd.com/) being a prime example. +[^bsd-post]: Like [this one](https://michal.sapka.me/2023/desktop-freebsd-wont-improve-unless-people-are-using-it/) and [this one](https://michal.sapka.me/2023/comments-on-desktop-freebsd-wont-improve-unless-people-are-using-it/). + +The last change, for now, is the emergence of categories. I looked at what I wrote and categorized it all. I consider a category the primary subject of an article, while tags are weaker links between different articles. What emerged from that are the primary subjects here: +- Emacs, as I am diving deeper and deeper here +- BSD, or rather my fight to use FreeBSD daily +- Engineering, with all other articles for computer programmers +- Star Trek, as I still have months and months of watching +- Computer History, as this something I am deeply interested in[^comp-hist] +[^comp-hist]: You can read [a dedicated article](https://michal.sapka.me/2023/computer-folks-ignore-history/) but know that there are dozens of us. Dozens! + +There are more categories, and I will update about page in the coming days. + +See you soon!
