Site Layout Updated

It’s been a while since I worked on this website. I’ve been busy with a lot of things (like I wasn’t able to post or update anything for more than 1 year). Recently had the to work on this website again and decided to update the layout and look. Hopefully it renders well for everyone. I tried this with all common browsers and may phone and it seems to be working fine.

Hopefully I can update more often. With what’s going on with the world recently since the start of 2020, I hope everyone stays safe.

Been A While

It’s been a while since I last posted…. Well been very busy with real life and a few things came up, far more important things I needed to a attend to (i.e. business)

Since the last updates with keycool and my SA profile keycaps. I have long since sold most of my SA keysets with the exception of Carbon SA. Well I tried to sell it but someone backed out and I told myself I’d rather keep it seeing how the prices are going down because of Carbon SA Round 2 coming up. I might as well keep my set and buy the extra kits that I need to make it compatible with all keyboard layouts.

I have also been getting a few DSA keycaps sets and found out that I do have an unused DSA Granite Elven Kit in my stock room that I have totally forgot about. So I might be testing out this profile with my new KBD75 build since the I feel the SA profile does not feel really that well with the board and also my SA Carbon does not have all the correct keycaps to fill up the board correctly.

I will be posting multiple updates today about whats happening with my keyboard scene.

Flat File CMS

Flat file webpages are fast. Been into this open source cms things for sometime now (like since the first wordpress version came out) and all of my time with this has been spent with CMS + database which is not too bad if you have nice hosting and you don’t get too much traffic.

Some of the issue I have encountered with dynamic database driven cms are

  • you need a fast server & web host if you will run a lot of plugins
  • the more users, the more database calls hence slowing site performance if you are not on a fast server
  • needing fast server/web host means needing to pay more

Above are just few things I can think of. Don’t get me wrong but I am for dynamic websites that is if you need one. I have ran an SMF Forum site for years before and I know the pains when you have large number of users specially forum websites. I had to move from shared hosting to reseller hosing to VPS and finally to a dedicated unmanaged server within 1 year because the website growth went fast.

Recently I got into static webpage generators such as Jekyll but it was too technical for me. I am not that technical when it comes to back-end coding and shit hahaha.

A few months back I remember reading about this flat file cms (i.e. grav, kirby, pico, automad, nibbleblog etc). So a few days ago I went on to Mr. Google and searched for flat file cms. I read about bludit from a reddit link I found and tried it out. So far so good for this CMS at least for this personal site that I am running.

Plugin availability is enough for me atleast for what I need but I’d like to see more of the things I got used to wordpress but I ain’t complaining bitches

So for the first few runs at bludit, it seems all good for now.
