Perv Color Schemes: Color Tables

| Comments

After I started using Sublime Text, I didn’t find any colour schemes, which either where good looking (IMHO), or supported all the different syntax highlighters I’m using. Therefore I started my own colour scheme (Perv Orange). As it is very hard–at least for me–to see the actual colours by looking at the HEX values, I created this blog entry as a reference.

Time of Change

| Comments

Is it really 4 years, one month and about 15 days ago, that I made my last blog entry? Yes, it is.

In order to clean up a specific hostname for my upcoming project, I needed to transfer my private blog to a new FQDN. And as I haven’t used Wordpress in the last 4 years—and even didn’t care about the comment spammers—I decided why bother anymore with Wordpress. Especially, as I started using Sublime Text, which is really a lot faster than using any other editor or text input fields in a webapp.

Therefore this is my new blog. Now based on Octopress. We shall see, if I will increase my post amount of less than one post a year ;)
