Getting Started with Hugo and Micropub

I was really interested in doing this, but ended up moving away from Hugo and instead building my site on top of Python/Django. I still really like a lot of these ideas and have taken a lot of inspiration on what Jamie is doing and built it into my own site.






Adobe Lightroom Workflow

My current solution (all personal photography) is that I have one large Lightroom catalog. I have everything from 2015-2018. Everything is organized by year/month-day shortname. For special things like multi-day vacations they get merged into a single folder. I have the last 3-6 months of raw files saved inside of my local Dropbox folder for some basic backups and everything older gets moved to my Synology NAS. I use a couple different Lightroom Hard drive publishing services.

Make opening your terminal fun

My favorite and least useful thing I have set up on my laptop is to run fortune | ponysay when I open a new bash session. In my .bashrc file I have the following snipped: 1 2 3 if [ -x /usr/local/bin/ponysay -a -x /usr/local/bin/fortune ]; then fortune | ponysay fi If you want one script to install everything for you: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 #!

Taking the Plunge

Today was my last day working for Track Revenue. It was my first job after graduating from California State University, Stanislaus. I learned a lot in the 18 months as part of the Software Engineering team. I was challenged and there were struggles, but ultimately I came out better than I was before. When I started working at Track Revenue I was still living at my parents and my girlfriend Aubrey was almost 2 hours away finishing her Senior year at Stan State.

TurlockCityBooze shutting down

All great things must come to an end, unfortunately that time has come for TCB. I am no longer living in the Central Valley and I would not be able to keep the site up to date, so I made the tough decision to shut it down. What was an idea during my last few semesters of college became a surprisingly successful website in Turlock. TCB was a website that showed local bars and restaurants when they were having a happy hour along with beer reviews.
