This post is a test-run for hosting a blog using a GitHub “personal page” site. This approach to content-management was inspired by Marc Duiker’s post detailing how he streamlined his own blogging process, thereby avoiding the headaches of owning and operating a real CMS. Avoiding HTML is just icing on the cake. I’m not overly fond of this template, but it works well enough for the moment. Did I mention I hate CSS?
So what’s this “mcguirev10” thing all about? For nearly 20 years, it has (mostly) been my username, sometimes abbreviated to “MV10”. We bought a Viper in 2001 and kept that for 16 years, so most people assume it’s that V10, but the reality is my mudding days preceded my track days. Back in October of 1999, I decided towing our big boat with a Dodge Durango was no fun, so I placed an order for a Dodge Ram 2500 with a V10. The Facebook guys were still in high school, and discussion forums were the social media of the day. I had a question about the truck, but someone else already had the username “mcguire” on the truck owner’s forum, so I added the V10 and the rest is history.
Anyway, as I mentioned, this post is really a test for sorting out the templates and styles and other browser-mandated arcana, but since I’m making all this noise about code, here’s some 8086 assembly to spice things up before we leave.
