About this site

This is the personal blog and website of David Yates. Subjects covered include tech, hacking, indie games, webcomics, the internet and whatever else I feel like writing about. It is unrelated to the country of Spain.

I have a few different sorts of things I post to this blog, and I try to vary up the content quite a bit so that I don’t get bored.

If you’ve got something you’d like me to review, or a topic that you’d like me to write about, let me know in an email, and specify whether you’d like to be credited with the suggestion in the post, should one result.

Stalking options

This is where I’d put a row of circular social media buttons if I didn’t hate those awful things. Have a list instead:

Site info

Some information disclosure:

  • The blog is powered by Hugo, a fully featured, flexible static site generator written in Go. Previously, it ran on Ghost – you can read about that transition here.
  • It’s hosted on a Digital Ocean virtual server instance located in Amsterdam. DO is a great service provider – affordable prices on scalable virtual servers, and manageable through a far less complicated interface than AWS.
  • The theme is a custom thing I hacked together myself. It’s not publicly available just yet.
  • Fonts used: Montserrat, Noto Serif, Noto Sans and Source Code Pro.
