Moving this website to a single Org Mode file

I have always loved GNU Emacs and its integrated computing environment. It has been even better after I started using Doom Emacs1, it basically took care of things I was unable to do properly: make it fast and semantically coherent. Either for the lack of time or technical knowledge.

As most GNU Emacs users, I love Org Mode and I love to write for this blog. So why not join these two things together? ox-hugo let’s me write a org file and turn it into multiple hugo-compatible markdown files. This is quite a feature for me as I like to keep all my stuff into one place2.

It would be pretty cool to have a place to share small trips with pictures and some comments. Thinking about it a bit more, it might work like some sort of microblog but… different? I should start doing it and stop ovethinking. It would be pretty cool to read a huge file with years of history written on it!

Oh, and you can see the file I’m talking about right here: sourcehut:~glorifiedgluer/monorepo/glorifiedgluercom/content/

  1. For the past few weeks it has been even better with the work of github:thiagokokada on the github:nix-community/nix-doom-emacs repository. Really, kudos for taking care of this project! 🎉 ↩︎

  2. Starting a personal monorepo ↩︎

Some notes on NixOS

Hello! Over the holidays I decided it might be fun to run NixOS on one of my servers, as part of my continuing experiments with Nix. My motivation for this was that previously I was using Ansible to provision the server, but then I’d ad hoc installed a bunch…

I found some of my first code! Annotating and reflecting on robotics code from 2009.

In high school, one of my teachers shattered my plans for my life, in the most beautiful way. Most of my life, I'd intended to become a math professional of some sort: a math teacher, when that was all I saw math for; an actuary, when I started to lear…
