After a long hiatus, we are live

Here we are, the first quarter of 2017 has flown by and not a new post to be seen. That is actually my fault for being defeatist. The pelican generator was upgraded to v3.7 from 3.6 and some portions of my theme started blowing chunks. As a result, it was rather difficult to publish anything without it breaking and I got a little stubborn and refused to back out the upgrade.

Side Effects of Web Server Changes

Back when I decided to convert over to Let’s Encrypt, I was having a few difficulties with the web server and redirects.

LISA'16 Was Fun

Boston in December is chillier then in November, however that is not really an issue when you spend a week there and don’t even have to go outdoors.

July Meeting Notes

Recap This evening we had a free-for-all night. No formal agenda, but rather open discussion and a lot of tidbits. Here is a list of things that were mentioned. We also tried out a discount LED projector which was surprisingly good. I don’t remember the actual model, but it was roughly 4000 lumens and something similar is available from if you are interested. I’m considering getting one as you never know when you might need one and the price is quite good.

Logo Issue

The site logo has gotten decidedly squished. I am aware and it probably has something to do with the fix I had to make for the downloads. Why it is an issue, I do not know, but I am aware of it and will be correcting it in the near future. Of course it doesn’t happen on the test server, so it must be something specific to the server on the production site.
