Hugo support for Org-mode

After switching my blog to run on Hugo and GitLab the next step for me was to figure out how to write my posts in org-mode. I was looking at emacs-easy-hugo for it at first, but it turns out Hugo can parse org-mode! To get it to work, all you need is an org-mode file with the default Hugo front-matter. I tried it with org-mode properties, but unfortunately that's not working. [Read More]

Emacs a New Dawn.

I have been using Emacs for some time now, and it has been interesting, but there are some things that make it a bit difficult to use. The key bindings for instance are at times really weird and impossible to guess. Some things are hard to get to work, and with others I run into some limitations with Emacs. Nevertheless it is an interesting editor to work with. It was fun to tell an external engineer that I use Emacs when he was asking about the editor I used, and seeing his reaction. [Read More]

Hello from Emacs!

Lately I have been working more in emacs, trying to see what I can do with it. The keyboard shortcuts are a bit arcane, but when you get used to them it' actualy fun to work with. This post for instance is written in emacs on my laptop. I have already setup my email with notmuch and offlineimap. This allows me to read and write mail in emacs. And the next thing I'm working in is to learn to use org-mode with org2blog. [Read More]

Game Programming

Last week it was Unity week over at Packt Publishing. They have this great free ebook program where you can get a new random ebook every day. This has allowed my ebook collection to grow to over 270 ebooks. Every so often they have a theme week where you get ebooks that fit the topic. I now own 17 ebooks about Unity so I thought it was time to start doing something with them. [Read More]

A Big Change!

Great news every one! The twins are born! Our family is expanded with 2 healthy baby’s! I can tell you that it is the best thing that has happened to me together with my wedding.     Needles to say they need a lot of attention, so next to school and work I don’t have a lot of time left to do other things. I’m still working on a few things that I hope to tell about soon. [Read More]

Back to School

On the first of this month I started school again. I started an Associates Degree ICT Management. It is a part-time study next to my day job. I spend one day in school, from 13:00 till 22:00, and 4 days in work. Next to that we get a lot of homework. The subjects for now are all very interesting: - Python - Cloud Computing - Cisco - ITIL ITIL is a quite dry subject, but its giving me a lot of insight into the processes at work. [Read More]

Busy, busy, busy

Time fly’s when your having fun! Its been over 2 months since I made a post, not really what I was planning on. It’s not like I’m having writers block, I just haven’t found the time to write. Between work and the house and me being lazy I’m just to busy =) The current programming language Drum roll… is JavaScript! As posted before, I’m trying to make an App for my wife. [Read More]

C# Programming

Last week I finished my edx.org course C# programming from Microsoft. It was a fun course, and it showed me that programming is a bit like riding a bike. Once I was going, it all was very familiar. Its not so strange I guess, all the Object Oriented Programming ideas are the same for any language, C# or Java (I learned Java in school). The course itself was given on the edx platform, but it was one of the first MOOC’s Microsoft gave. [Read More]

Moved to WordPress

Today I decided DrunkTurtle needed to move. I liked the simplicity of Ghost, but I was missing some things. It were small things, but things I wanted non the less. So, now were running on Wordpress :)

Learning C#

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been learning how to program in C#. I’m following a course over at edx.org that is given by Microsoft. In the past I have been looking at C# a number of times, as it is a nice medium between C and Java. Following this course has brought back a lot of the stuff I was taught in school about programming, but we were learning Java back then. [Read More]
