FAQ

Below are some answers to some common questions that I get asked. You can always ask me anything by contacting me.

How did you end up doing what you do?

The short answer: by accident.

Why does this website look so weird?

It’s because I tried to build it by hand from a bunch of open-source pieces. I host it on Netlify, and I build it using GitLab. The structure is Jekyll. I’m not an expert at any of this stuff, so I’m only using the basic features of all of these things, but doing it this way has two real advantages:

  1. I learn a bunch about all sorts of technologies (for instance, doing this, I learned a bunch about DNS, Ruby, Linux, Nginx, Git, and more).
  2. I use almost entirely open-source technologies, so nothing I’ve done relies on other companies to hold it together.

Why are there so few questions here?

Because I just started all of this.
