There is something both nostalgic and depressing about an “under construction” sign on a website. More powerful, however, is a post like the following:

“Hi guys, it’s been a while hasn’t it? Well I’m back now, and better than ever…”

It’s an immutable law of the internet that this, even more than an under construction sign, cannot ever be fulfilled. I’ve read enough web-comic guest weeks—and written a blog post like that myself—to know their power. But I’m going to try flaunt it anyway. Why not?

What’s really going on here is that I set up my server to have a domain name and proper sub-domains for a few things that were running on it already, like R Studio Server and Shiny. I then remembered that static websites were a thing, and started investigating. This is, hopefully, going to be the result. It’s a bit fiddly but I’m getting the hang of the system.
