Right Posture vs Reality
After another cross-country move, I've had to leave my mighty Workspace behind (complete with 2 monitors and a fierce Desktop PC). I've taken my Laptop with me, thinking that's really all I need, as I could do all my work while sitting in a park meditating (or some other ridiculous notion). Obviously I was totally wrong!
I've recently restarted my genealogical research efforts, to find out more about my family's history.
In many cases, especially people of Jewish-European origins, not much is known by the ones who stayed alive (20th century Europe has seen a lot).
Many archives are recent, and some German/Polish/Russian archives have only recently been scanned and digitized.
I thought I'd start building a Family Tree, and once I hit a dead end, start to look for clues online.Read More...
There are quite a few services out there that provide family trees, and I've decided to use them in combination.
As most of you have noticed, I (almost) always post on a Thursday.
This year, for the first time since 2009, New Year's Eve is on a Thursday!
So first of all Happy New Year everyone! Let's make this year kick 2015's ass!
I've decided to pick a few of the best (in my opinion) articles I've written this year. This is something I've never done before, but I think it's a good way of looking back at the year, and gaining better understanding as to what I've been dealing with (mostly technologically). so I came up with the following:
Continuing the WordPress to Jekyll series,
I've decided to give a few Jekyll tips that I've learned in the process of converting my website.
Jekyll serve at the speed of light
Over 5 years, I've written quite a few posts, over 500 posts.Read More...
To test Jekyll out (for development) you have to run the following command:However, with 500+ posts, it takes about 70-90 seconds to build, which is annoying if you're making small tweaks,
that take minutes to compile.
There's a cool little trick to make compilation happen a lot quicker, by limiting the number of posts:This will only compile the last 3 posts, which is enough for 99% of test cases anyways.
jekyll serve --limit_posts=3
The average compilation time with the limit_posts parameter is about 3-4 seconds.
This is a great trick especially if you have a bigger blog with 1000+ posts.
