Got around to getting this website launched once again. Found this really great theme for Grav by Hossain Mohd Faysal and ported to Grav over at https://github.com/getgrav/grav-theme-notepad. Still getting it to how I'd like it to look, but it's a great theme!
As for Grav, it's a real snappy little CMS. Flat file and configured with yaml and comes with twig support. Funny how for the longest time the drive was to use databases for CMS, but a simple flat file structure does just fine.
As for the choice of the cover picture, figured it was a good start for relaunching my personal site. I've always have been fascinated by eagles, not just as an apex predator but also their nature. An eagle will give in to a superior opponent but not without trying to fight. You could almost say that eagles know when to surrender.
Let's see how this rolls!
