New Blog Theme

Posted on .

I have updated this blog to use the Tiles theme. I was looking to shake things up and I was impressed with the layout and animations. It provides a bit of visual interest, while staying true to a pretty straightforward blog site.

Having all the posts on a single page is different. And I do miss my old orange circuit board cover image, but I'll get over it.

If you like it, you can buy it here: Theme Forest Link

Support is excellent from the developer.


Ghost Blog

New Ghost

Posted on .

I upgraded to version 0.8 of Ghost over the weekend. I am pretty proud of myself as it was all command line on Linux.

It would have been a half hour job if I had just followed all of the instructions here. Unfortunately, when they say follow all the steps exactly, they mean follow all the steps exactly.

It was true in first grade and its still true today: following instructions is hard.

Anyway, I didn't blow away the core directory I just copied the new one over the top and that led to weird problems down the road.

Fortunately, the fix was easy. Just follow all the steps exactly and voila! It works.
