Hugo, a static website generator

Just a couple of days ago I posted about jkl, a static website generator written in Go, and based on Jekyll. While setting up jkl, I stumbled over Hugo! I was impressed at first sight with Hugo. Since then I have reconfigured my site to work with Hugo. I didn’t have to fiddle with the Hugo code, everything just works, and it really does most everything that comes to mind. This whole website thing has been bothering me for a long time; and finally I am a happy champer.

Messenger Laravel Framework

This is a fork and upgrade of the davzie message class. A info, error etc messenger class that allows you to add validation errors, statuses etc to flash data and then retrieve them in a nicely formatted way in your front-end. Automates the process a little when you’re adding and retrieving messages, especially in a CRUD type environment. The formatting integrates well with Twitter’s Bootstrap Alert formatting. This upgraded version works smoothly with the Laravel validation class

Google, the most dangerous monopoly ever

I use almost all Google services ranging from search engine, over Gmail, Calendar, Android and Google Voice all the way to Webmaster Tools and Google Analytics. If you combine all that data, I think that Google may know me better then I know my self, and that is starting to make me nerves. Don’t get me wrong, I think that Google is a great company, the services provided are excellent, and I don’t have a reason to believe that my data has been compromised.

It is not the critic who counts

It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belong to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again. Who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, and spends himself in a worthy cause.
