TRST (pronounced, “Trust,” as in, “Trust the floating eye”) is an imaginary floating eye that sits at a computer, typing out silly blog posts to fill an emotional hole that has been festering since adolescence. It is a disembodied consciousness without all of that silly humanity left over to weigh it down. What is left, however, is an unfortunate sense of entitlement and an underdeveloped ability to make a point.
Topics on this site range from design and technology, to morals and pizza making. Whenever I fall into a fit of inspiration I’ll likely jaw-on poetically about the free Internet, open-source (both technology and culture) and how all that comes together to form our modern sense of personal identity. All in all, the writing isn’t terribly compelling. But hey, that didn’t stop you from getting this far.
As a hip cat, I spent some time shopping around for barebones content management systems and ended up with
Jekyll Grav, which is based in a programming language that I know little to nothing about (priorities, am-I-right?). The design is all my own, although I am grateful for Type Together’s Soleil, my font of choice, served through Typekit. Everything is up and running on a VPS from Digital Ocean (forgive me, that’s a referral link but if you use it we both get a small kickback when you purchase your own VPS.)
Additionally, this website was crafted by a looney-toons amount of Lucky Charms marshmellows and pure dark magic.
Let’s just hope this doesn’t end too horribly.
