weeknotes 69: redesigning

·1 min

It’s one of those weeks where I didn’t get up to much that I feel like rambling about.

But I did redesign the footer of my website. And I’m pretty pleased with how that turned out. I’m enjoying learning more about layouts in CSS using flex (and implementing them with Tailwind).

I’m as pleased with this as I am the site header redesign that I mentioned a couple of weeks ago. I realise I said I was ridiculously excited about that and then I haven’t said anything about it since publishing it, but that’s only because it’ll be a blog post rather than a weeknotes, and well, I’m good at procrastinating those.

weeknotes 66: memory lane

·1 min
  • the academic season is kicking off and consequently there have been a few notifications of lecture series landing in my inbox. i have signed up for a few. i rather enjoy listening to folks talking about old maps and the history of cartography and such
  • went to a gig to see a band i haven’t listened to much since i was a teenager, that was a fun trip down memory lane
  • i started playing around with redesigning the header on my website – i am ridiculously excited about one particular aspect of it but i am going to keep that a secret for now (yes, of course it’s map-related)

weeknotes 64: torrential rain

Stuff from the last week:

I’ve been running through my ankiboxes and considering the purposes of my different IW queues and associated ankiboxes a little more closely.

I redesigned part of my homepage. The “recent feed” part now has two columns – one for blog posts and another for weeknotes. Both of these things live under the /blog/ section of my site but I figured out a way to list them separately as well as altogether, as demonstrated by my new homepage and my new index pages: blog.html and weeknotes.html and archives.html

I started a new lab page – my first since 2019 apparently – for “geolab” my personal PostGIS server. I’ll be adding to this incrementally as I refine my slightly messier note I’ve been working on for the last few weeks.

I managed to get caught in torrential rain twice in the last week. The second time I was slightly more prepared and had an umbrella, but honestly I didn’t end up that much better off ha!

weeknotes: week 10

Things I’ve gotten up to since my last weeknotes:

A few more words about each of those…


Congo is a slick Hugo theme, which I’ve just started using on my site. RIP my hacked up Casper theme. Congo is built with Tailwind CSS, which I look forward to getting to know better.
