More Cthulhu

I used to play a lot of Call of Cthulhu back in the old days, and the big problem with the game was that the stakes were too high. Any failure by the characters to complete their mission would result in the end of the world as Washington D.C. was eaten by a giant space octopus, and it was difficult to see how to carry on from there. One of the games I played in, where I played a character based on the Saint, for some reason, ended in a zombie plague.

Sci-Fi Architecture

An Architectural Blog Post I’m out and about in Venice and it is the time of the big Architecture show. I try to see as much of it as I can each year because there are always some futuristic ideas, which are ideal for inspiration for a sci-fi author such as myself. The architecture show, by some odd historical happenstance, is organised round the idea of national pavilions and today I popped into the New Zealand Pavilion.

A Hugo for Blogging

Hugo A hugo is a type of drink, but it is also a strange little blogging project. It’s the new kid on the block, and is overshadowed by Wordpress. But not everyone likes Wordpress. This blogger hates it. He says; Based on this experience [with Wordpress] I have one advice to anyone thinking of doing the same: don’t. Just don’t. Unless that is, you genuinely enjoy pain and have a lot of time to waste.

good to great

#Good to Great This post has the title, Good to Great, because it was generated while I was following a tutorial. A tutorial that was not good to great. This is an example page, created with Hugo, hopefuly it will turn into meaningful content soon. The title comes directly from the tutorial that suggested I create it, but I may think of some content that fits, perhaps. {{ template “_internal/disqus.html” .

#A Post About Markdown For some reason, posts in Hugo have to be written in Markdown.
