reviving this blog

This blog is still alive! Up and running on Jekyll now. Should figure out how to support RSS feeds…

Well 2020 was a weird year wasn’t it! Can we start trusting science now please?

In some of my spare time I rebuilt Almost-Dead.net, a setlist-tracking site for Joe Russo’s Almost Dead. The back-end was to be my excuse to play with Elixir, but my unfamiliarity with it became a blocker to getting anything done. The new version uses CSVs as its data format 😅 which I can edit using Google Sheets without too much pain. When the page loads up in a browser, it stores the (transformed) data into the client’s localStorage, which makes subsequent browsing feel lightning-fast!
