Been very quiet for quite some time, so may as well provide a small update to the handful of bots and webscrapers that visit this site. A project that I have been working on for some time has been fully deployed, and I'm getting ever closer to showing it off to a wider audience, once I've finished up an feature or two. If you've been snooping around my GitHub account or some of the repository's I have on there, then you may be able to find out what it is. The next post I make here will be an introduction to this project. Once I've shown this off to a wider audience I intend on writing some more posts here too about the project itself, and some of the approaches I took to building it.
It has been too long since my last post in which I announced mgrt, the simple SQL migration tool. Has much happened between then and now? Well, I showed off mgrt to some people with little fanfare, and got around to implementing TLS support for the tool. Right now it supports TLS for PostgreSQL, and to a certain extent MySQL/MariaDB. And during my further developments of the tool itself I have come to realise how much I truly despise working with MySQL. My feelings for it are all superficial, so they hardly warrant a tangent.
It's been almost a month since my last post, in which I detailed what I hoped to achieve in regards to this blog, and to a slightly further extent this year.
2019 is around the corner, and it has been 2 months since the first post I made on this blog, though I doubt anyone is actively following/reading. I have done very little to advertise it so what should I expect? However I think now is an apt time to justify the purpose of this blog, and layout some of the things I would like to achieve in the coming year.
