Set-up


This is a static site built on a Mac with Hugo. Content is hosted on Github and Dropbox and served by Netlify. E-mails are handled via InMotion Hosting in Los Angeles, California. Fonts for social icons and other links in the footer is sourced under license from FontAwesome.

For its first ten years this web­site ran on Word­Press, the excel­lent, free open-source CMS. Between 2017 and 2019 it ran on the much slim­mer, quicker, more straight­for­ward (and data­base-free) system, Kirby. In an attempt to avoid Kirby’s license fee inflation and migration headaches from v2.0 to v3.0 I decided to move to a static website model powered by Hugo. This has proved to make writing, and website management and design, a pleasure once again while also giving me plenty of time to focus on my other interests. Plus, Hugo lets me edit this site completely offline which is great if I want to put in a few minutes of work while on the go.
