A few notes on Weber's Genesis II EX-335

Freshly assembled Weber Genesis II EX-335. Spoiler: It didn't stay clean for long.

So I decided to replace my Weber Spirit Original E-210 with a new BBQ station to add quite a bit more BBQ action into my life. The Spirit was my first gas grill and did an excellent job for a “first gas grill”. However, for things like longjobs1 — expecially if you have guests — I considered two zones as a potential bottleneck. As usual I just started a quick study on what is currently available on the market. What then happened is probably quite familiar for many of you. You do a bit of research for a suitable replacement and the next thing you see is yourself in is the checkout process of an online store…

As recently announced I created a WordPress version of the Hugo theme sciolism 2019. The theme recently passed the review process on and is now published in the theme repository. In addition you can also grab the theme on GitHub.

Kickstart 2021 with a little bit of WordPress action

The year 2021 is rather young and many people tend to have new year resolutions. My new year resolution is – just kidding – these usually don’t work out anyway.

Nevertheless, I’ve used the last days to ship an update of e.nigma 2015 which mainly focused on optimizing the code base and providing small fixes. In addition I’ve ported the recently introduced sciolism 2019 theme from Hugo to WordPress. The theme is currently waiting for a theme review so I guess it will take a couple of weeks before it is available in the WordPress theme repository. For the impatient there is of course the change to fetch the theme from GitHub.

Introducing sciolism 2019

sciolism 2019 header

Roughly a year ago I announced sciolism 2019. Yesterday I finally shipped the initial release of the theme. It look quite a long time to do the final tweaks and make a decision on when to ship the theme — maybe I should write about this process later because it was a very interesting journey.

sciolism 2019 is a light-weighted and minimalistic theme for the static site generator Hugo. The theme was designed for blogs. In fact this is the very theme that you are looking at right now. Further information is available in the theme’s Readme file. The theme is currently available via GitHub but I submitted the theme to the official Hugo Theme gallery, too. Let’s see when it will arrive there.
