Website reboot

Drupal and Wordpress have been pissing me off without end for years now. Google also sent me a displeased email that they didn’t like the old website anymore because it wasn’t mobile friendly enough. So, there we have it, time to completely rework the whole thing, this time, using Hugo as my content management system.

I can’t say that Hugo is sheer is a complete bundle of joy to work with. The docs are lacking, stuff often works differently than one might expect (or not at all) and there are tons of questionable design choices (e.g. the build in support for various webservices). But hey, at least I finally get rid of the constant security and performance issues of PHP based content management systems!
