Keep Moving Forward

29 November 2023

Fellow tech enthusiasts and curious minds, It's been a rollercoaster of change here at JustANerds.Site, and I'm excited to share the journey with you. Recently, I faced an unexpected twist that led to the loss of my GhostCMS site hosted on a Digital Ocean droplet. But as they say, every cloud has a silver lining, and in this case, it led me to reconfigure the website on an AWS EC2 instance with a new perspective – embracing the lightweight and versatile WonderCMS.

Why WonderCMS? A Digital Evolution:

Losing access to my GhostCMS site and witnessing the unexpected destruction of the droplet on DigitalOcean was a setback, to say the least. However, I am to blame for not backing up my files. So, I chose to view it as an opportunity for a fresh start. Enter WonderCMS – a flat file CMS that aligns seamlessly with the vision I have for JustANerds.Site. The simplicity and efficiency of WonderCMS have allowed me to quickly rebuild and create a space that is not just a reflection of my thoughts and learnings but a dynamic platform for all things tech, UNIX-based administration, and more. Utilizing the same MIT license, WonderCMS is complete freedom. While GhostCMS was a beautifully created piece of software, it lacked the suckless look, feel, and maneuverability I enjoy. In essence, GhostCMS is not suckless. It is bloated with JS, and requires the use of many pieces to work properly (WebKit!).  WonderCMS is an excellent way to create a suckless, portable, minimal site. I will cover this in a later post.

Continuing the Tech Odyssey: FreeBSD, Scripting, and UNIX-based Administration:

For those who have been following my tech-centric posts, fear not! The essence of JustANerds.Site remains rooted in FreeBSD, scripting, and UNIX-based administration. Expect the same insightful content, tutorials, and explorations into the vast realm of technology. As we navigate this transition, the commitment to providing valuable insights and geeky delights remains unwavering. LONG LIVE FBSD JAILS!

A New Chapter: Apprenticeship with GSL Electric:

In the spirit of embracing change, I'm thrilled to announce a new chapter in my personal and professional journey. Join me on a 'follow-along' adventure as I embark on an electrician's apprenticeship with GSL Electric in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. From tech talk to the hands-on world of electrical systems, expect a blend of experiences and learnings as I navigate this exciting career transition.

Change is inevitable, and in the world of tech and personal development, it often leads to unforeseen opportunities. The move from GhostCMS to WonderCMS is not just a shift in the digital landscape of JustANerds.Site; it's a testament to adaptability and the continuous pursuit of growth. Thank you for being part of this journey, and I can't wait to explore the future - from lines of code to electrical circuits and beyond.
