When I relaunched this website a little over 2 years ago, I was hoping to be posting here at least a couple of times a year. Ahem ... But, yes! the strategy and the ambitions did not expire. Here I am again: rebuilding the whole thing, enjoying React and static site generation and making plans to blog more often.
