I give up.
I’ve used home-grown, half-baked, and ’standard’ static homepage/blog generators, but in the end, I don’t have the time to spend on updating packages in third party solutions, and I don’t have the time – and no longer really the interest – to maintain a platform of my own.
So, today I give up and move to WordPress.com, so I can hopefully just have my homepage stable and when I want to write a new blog post, I can do that without worrying if some tool I was using to generate the site is out of date (until I need to update plugins, or org2blog breaks…). Having stuff (like the Hugo generator) break for me has been a huge blocker getting new blog posts published, but I hope to pick up the pace again now.
With this change, the bitsynchub URL has changed to http://services.metallapan.se/services/bitsynchub/ – for now at least. I’ve kept it up and running for a long while now, but no longer use it myself (since Bitbucket dropped Mercurial support, I just migrated to Github instead).
Hopefully the SSL warnings will shake themselves out Real Soon Now as WP refreshes from LetsEncrypt.
