My Internet Home 🏠

Hello! I'm capjamesg.

I am a technical writer by-day. In my free time, I love to code, make websites like this one, and spend time in cafes and drink coffee. I don't have much else to say because I am still figuring out what I enjoy. I like photography too.

I love getting email. Send me an email at jamesg@jamesg.blog if you want to chat. My code is on GitHub.

I share a birthday with International Coffee Day.

I like to write. Below are some of the articles I have written.

  • Building Relationships at My Local Coffee Shop

    Posted on: | Coffee

    I have been attracted to coffee shops for a long time. When I was young, I enjoyed going out for a cup of tea with members of my family. I still think back to the days when I was too young to drink tea. I’d drink a carton of apple juice or something similar. I’d think about when I would be able to drink tea. I cannot remember at what age I could finally drink tea. I do know that tea stuck with me for years. I’d drink a few cups a day on most days.

  • An Unknown Coffee Tasting

    Posted on: | Coffee

    I’m currently drinking an unknown coffee from my local coffee shop. I did not ask what coffee beans they use when I asked if they could sell me a small supply to tide my over until my next shipment arrived. I decided to use this as an opportunity to refine my tasting skills.

  • Some Site Statistics

    Posted on: | Technology

    I was going through the analytics for my website using my custom analytics script. My script displays three pieces of information. I see the top five pages, the top five posts, and the top five status codes. It appears as if there are a number of 404 errors. I should investigate those at some point. I’ve changed so much on the site.

  • Day Two with Ubuntu Linux

    Posted on: | Technology

    I had trouble coming up with an idea for this blog post. I think too much. This is my second full day running Ubuntu on my new computer. I set up Ubuntu on Monday. I didn’t get a good sense of what Ubuntu was about in the few hours that I had set up my machine. I’m still learning how to navigate a new operating system.

  • Setting Up My New Computer

    Posted on: | Technology

    I purchased a HP computer last week while I was on vacation. I didn’t do too much research into the model. I spoke with people in the IndieWeb community. HP came highly recommended by one person after I said I was thinking about a Dell IdeaPad. I wanted a computer that would last me. The Dell IdeaPad does not have a strong reputation for its robustness.
