Random thoughts on programming, UNIX and software freedom.

Using Gitea and/or Github to host blog comments

After having moved from FSFE’s wordpress instance I thought long about whether I still want to have comments on the new blog. And how I would be able to do it with a statically generated site. I think I have found/created a pretty good solution that I document below.

New blog

I have moved my blog from https://blogs.fsfe.org/h2 to my own web-space. On the way I have switched from Wordpress to GoHugo. I hope to publish more often and will increasingly cover programming topics.

Free commenting disabled

Since I have had more and more spam coming through the filters and annoying me no end, I decided to restrict commenting to registered users (which are only FSFE fellows). I regret to do this, but the ratio of spam to content is 5,245 to 22 (do the math yourself) and I don’t want to spend what time I have for the blog with removing spam. I hope to change it in the future again, once a better anti-spam solution has been found.

Blog Overhaul

Dear readers, I have changed the look and feel on my blog a little. It is more streamlined now, and it will contain pictures and notes on photography as well. I will mostly write about technical details of the the picture taking and editing process, but the pictures themself might be interesting for not-technical users as well :) Hopefully some people who know more about digital photography will find their way to this blog and leave helpful comments, so I can improvemy skills!

Long time no see

Hi everyone, ok so there haven’t been posts in while, because I was incredibly busy, but I do plan on finishing the line of posts concerning my audio setup. I also have a post in line regarding my (possibly irrelevant) thoughts on KDE and I have a few things to say about Android which I have been using a lot lately, so stay tuned. The spam issue is getting kind of out-of-hand (over 1000 spam comments VS a handful of real ones), so if your comments don’t appear immediately don’t get angry.
