About me

I met computers at the end of 80s. I studied computer & electronics engineering (bsc, msc) at the end of 90s and early 2000s. I am curious about many things, and this blog is a reflection of that.

I have a few projects on Github.

About this site

This site is generated statically using Hugo. I am editing it with vim.

I keep the site under Git version control (master@b89d0d), and also keep this folder in Dropbox. This provides a simple solution to version control, shared repo and backup. It is also pushed to a private GitHub repo.

I am using Netlify to host the website, so every commit on GitHub repo is deployed automatically (last deploy: 02 Jun 21 14:26 UTC). I use the apex domain (metebalci.com), and www subdomain (www.metebalci.com) redirects to apex.

The HTTPS certificate is generated and maintained automatically by Netlify. Thanks to awesome Let’s Encrypt.

Netlify supports HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) (see response header Strict-Transport-Security), meaning it can only be served over HTTPS.

Netlify also supports HTTP/2.

I use Hover as my domain registrar and Google Cloud Platform for DNS.

Hover and DNS@Google Cloud Platform supports DNSSEC, and DNSSEC is enabled for this zone (metebalci.com) as well.
