You can’t go back and change the beginning, but you can start where you are and change the ending. –C.S. Lewis

Even though the new workflow was working well, I decided to move the repository for Indigo Spot to GitLab from GitHub. Why? Because GitLab provides unlimited private repositories free of charge, so rather than pay $7 USD per month for private repositories, I decided to move to the service that provides that free of charge for developers. I am not sure how sustainable GitLab’s business model is at the moment, but I am going to see how things pan out.
It seems that casting about for a CMS solution to this site has thrown me for a huge loop lately. In wanting to clear up extraneous subscription fees, I decided to cancel the Wordpress.com hosting for Indigo Spot.

Since GitHub finally added HTTPS for custom domains to their GitHub Pages hosting, I thought that might be a good landing spot.

Sometime when you’re feeling important; Sometime when your ego’s in bloom; Sometime when you take it for granted, You’re the best qualified in the room: Sometime when you feel that your going, Would leave an unfillable hole, Just follow these simple instructions, And see how they humble your soul. Take a bucket and fill it with water, Put your hand in it up to the wrist, Pull it out and the hole that’s remaining,

There are naive questions, tedious questions, ill-phrased questions, questions put after inadequate self-criticism. But every question is a cry to understand the world. There is no such thing as a dumb question. —Carl Sagan
