Using Visual Studio Code and Hugo

This is the first attempt at using Visual Studio Code to initialise and create Hugo matter for the blog. One thing I notice as I write this is the Dictionary is set to en:US and not en:GB which is fine it you don’t mind swapping out the z’s everywhere. What was it Shaw said: “The United States and Great Britain are two countries separated by a common language.” Which is its self incorrect as Great Britain is actually three countries and three languages although English is the predominant one....

Blogo – Long time no see

I recently wrote about how nice it was to see Windows Live Writer again, and while it works great in most aspects it fails on a purely cosmetic one. The site themes or at least the simple one I am using renders incorrectly in fact it makes the feature a bug not a bonus. Today I came across and article on Blogging editors for off-line work and was reminded of one I have had since it was launched Blogo is Mac only and it was nice, it wasn’t perfect but pretty good....

I have been Busy

Charlie Chaplin LEGO Minifigure I haven’t posted on here in a very long time, I have been very busy on other things mostly to do with my 3d work.

It has become more and more demanding to have multiple web presences and so I finally decided to use Artstation as my main and only portfolio....

Just moving in

I have just changed hosting company and I am in the process of setting up the site in its new home. As with all moves there are bound to be a few articles that go astray in the moving process, so please bare with me while I tidy up all the loose ends. This site is available as https but doesn’t have a valid certificate yet, so expect warnings and errors....
