TAONAW: The Art of Not Asking Why

This website is essentially free to maintain1.

TAONAW is built with Hugo Go, a free open-source static-site generator. It is designed and authored on a free Linux OS using Emacs org-mode and ox-hugo. Bandwidth is currently supplied free of charge by GitLab.

I write posts in my free time because I want to and I enjoy doing so. No one is supporting me, sponsoring me, or otherwise paying me anything to write or create or publish any content. The goal is to keep things this way.

If you enjoy what you find here, you can go ahead leave a one-time tip. This is not payment: you’re tipping me for a service I gave (a post you like), not a service you want to get (asking me to write a post).

A note about copying/using the code and other parts of this site: I use free tools and free knowledge to build this site, and you are welcome to take and use anything you’d like, except the logo. The logo of the owl and the book was not free and therefore, you may not copy or re-use it. It was created by another artist, who I hired for money. If you want the name, I’ll be more than happy to give it to you. Just ask.

You can also go ahead and copy the content of the posts as well, just please link back to this site.
